Frankly, I have it in my head that my consular did the deed with Zenith. I mean, who doesn't like a bad boy?

*GASP you mean a company that wants to earn money is catering to a larger group?! HOW SEXIST!
Seriously...

There, I fixed it for you. Because whatever your favorite part of the game is, there's pretty much guaranteed to be someone out there who doesn't care about it as much as you don't care about this thread.

If you don't care about it...don't participate in the discussion, and leave it to those who do.

Totally agree with the OP, also about the double-standard that three of the eight classes get two full on Romance options while the 'best' the females get are two classes that get flings in addition to the full Romances. And that all the male LIs are Human, except for Jorgan.

But I disagree with someone dissing on the f!Consular Romance. I'm happening to enjoy it quite a bit, it fits my character very well, while I disliked pretty strongly elements of the f!Jedi Knight Romance, which someone else dubbed "the best". Dollars to doughnuts there are people out there who hate your preferred Romance as much as you like it. Try to remember that when you're expressing your opinions.

I tell you, the amount of my characters who have gone celibate through having no interesting romantic partners at all, is in the 100% range and I refuse outright to play a male character just because.

With the other issues SWTOR has, I also feel this way. In a perfect game, I'd agree with the OP...but not for this game...not now.
All warfare is based on deception If his forces are united, separate them If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near A leader leads by example not by force

Yeah, the romance situation concerning male vs. female content is so ridiculously skewed in one favor it's out-right comical.

Same with me (as far as what's seen in game).

But...

Head-canon to the rescue!

*well, not with Zenith for me, but I do rely on the ol' head-canon with others*

Zenith is insane, not a bad boy. This became clear to me on my second consular who went dark side.
