Or maybe I just want LS Jaesa to be a lesbian to get away from the idea that sexuality (or, rather for this game, homosexuality) is something inherently Dark Side.
I suggested it before. Thought it was perfect idea.

I'm sorry; I'm very late to this discussion and kept getting directed to threads which had been closed due to post count. I did not even remotely have the time to peruse the gargantuan number of posts on this topic. Can someone please give me a quick update on the status of this feature?

I haven't seen it in-game so I'm assuming that "by the end of 2012" didn't happen. What's the status?

Thanks.

Depends. SGR with companions? No. SGR with NPCS? Yes, but level 50+.

So the issue is essentially dead then; it's never going to happen? I mean, if they didn't put it in with new content it's hard for me to imagine them going back and inserting it in to 50 levels of old content covering numerous characters, companions, and story arcs. Is there something I've missed?

I'd like to see it implemented with a companion conversation replay feature.

But I dunno. If they have to record a lot of new lines, might be harder to convince the shareholders.

I think the idea of (and it's just personal opinion) SGR with your current companions or SGR flirts with past NPCs is not going to happen.

SGR with a future companion that is sold on the market either as SGR or Herosexual, very possible. There's a demand for SGR companion and they could very likely see other players purchasing a new companion, because it's new!

I really don't see them going back and changing the existing group of companion dialogs.

It's possible that if they expand upon current companion stories with new dialogs, they might also add in a SGRA path for some companions (this would be post 50/55 content for most). I doubt even this will happen though.

We'll probably get more 'mini' romances with NPCs like Lembda and Lord Cytherat. They may also add in new companions that are shared between classes (possibly faction limited though) and these new companions may have a romance arc and may even have an SGRA one.

They said that if/when there're going to be new companions, it will be HK-style (same for all classes etc). Most people assume that if there ever is SGR with a companion, it will be with new HK-style added companions in future.

And then of course we'll be in the Pay2Gay scenario, which will only drive more people away from the game. Not that Makeb isn't, of course, but providing companions only through the Cartel Market solidifies that.

Nah, at least HK didn't work that way. Something actually similiar to HK (do quest series x and get a free companion) would be great imo.

Though, I'm a little worried about just adding 1 gay companion that "fits all" - what if I happen to think that guy/gal is a complete idiot?
