I am now creating a female character Sith Warrior, when she could have romance with Vette or Jaesa Willsaam? Only Makeb?

Never which sucks since my Sith Lady has so much chemistry with both. I'm pretty sure only the republic get a woman who is receptive to flirting on makeb. I think there is something during forged alliances though and there is a very funny line during one of Vette's companion quests.

You can't. There are no companion same-gender romances at the moment. Within the Empire, you may [Flirt] with Darth Acina, in the Seeker Droid missions, the lady who gives you the Czerka lead-in quest, and Lana Beniko.

Thanks, I'll think about my character and her story.

I haven't posted in some time now and haven't kept up with the updates and rumors either.

I still haven't finished the dialogue or missions with any of the romance possible companions. Hopeful that maybe, perhaps, some day, if we're lucky, (and we're, not it seems ) that they could become SGR possible. But, I'm wondering what others think about it...

Should I go ahead and finish this content because they're never going to make these companions SGR possible and if they do it will be with new dialogue and such? Or wait as it's not a complete waste of story content to wait as we may yet have hope?

I honestly couldn't tell you.

Because, either they make the conversations retro-active, and available pre-50 - and mind I have no idea how that would work for those of us who have completed the conversations - or they make them post-55, regardless of whether or not you've completed the existing story line.

Or they don't do it at all.

You can probably wait, and watch videos on youtube, but in all honest, we'll only get confirmation for the above when they have a relevant closed beta for the content, and Dulfy tells us, like what happened with Makeb. Bioware themselves will not tell us anything.

Yea, sadly true. I wish they could see the harm, lack of trust, or faith, their information policy has.

A pretty, bisexual one with no compelling character development other than to cater to the male players' every need, you mean?

I shouldn't let the cynicist in me do all the talking, though.
I can't speak for the female Sorc but I know the random flirts/temporary storyline relationships for the female Warrior were sparse at best. I think the Imperial Agent got the best deal in that respect. Would have been nice to have gotten a proper love triangle situation like male Warriors had. A one night fling with Pierce isn't exactly the same, lazy implementationthere...

What next? probably a delayed 3.0 well into the new year and no worthwhile SGR content. Wait, that's a little too cynical even for me, hopefully I'm wrong

That fling with Pierce, *********** hell, talk about a bait-and-switch. You know he and the Warrior would be **** buddies (I revenge ****ed him after the Quinncident) - I'd say also regardless of the Warrior's gender.

Also, pretty but with no character development? That's what happens to almost every female character in main stream media when she becomes "the love interest". But we can't really expect much from them, I'm pretty sure the entire writing staff is currently men. Write what you know, after all.

((Apparently they know space battles and ancient alien civilisations, but not how two people of the same gender share a romantic relationship without one of them dying.))

After playing a bunch of female characters, and now switching to the males, I came to the conclusion that the vast majority of the male NPCs in this game must be romantically interested in males and repressing, because they pay absolutely no attention to a female toon no matter how beautiful and accomplished, and all the female NPCs of high social standing and power seem suspiciously eager to shower my quite junior male toons with compliments and jump them.

Yeah, I am annoyed. I've played game diligently for 6+ months, and the only satisfying intentionally romantic sequence was playing one particular planet and consisted of maybe 8 flirting options and a kissing scene/FTB with an NPC that promptly disappeared afterwards.
