No problem.

So anyway, hoorah and so forth. Now if only I didn't have to create a male imperial to try out the m/m, too.

I'm disappointed that a few of my characters will remain romance-less, especially my Sith Warrior lady, but at least some of the others will have an opportunity. And I'm hopeful for the future.

Also, the two gay NPCs are sort of the face of the game right now, and that's pretty brilliant.

I thought it was interesting, at least, when I realized that. What I'm wondering is whether the NPCs were written first and had the SGR flirts added in later, or if they were conceived that way from the start.

I liked that fact, made me want to make a fem Smuggler, and rework all other characters.

The [Flirts] with Lord Cytharat were very professional (at least, they were for my Agent) which makes me wonder if that was because of the scenario in which everything was taking place or if because the [Flirt]s were added as an after-thought, replacing other dialogue.

That said, the dialogue does vary - most of the time - between personal interaction (asking about individuals lives, how they got there, that sort of thing), being forthright about the mission and professional (asking for more details, possible scenarios if stuff goes wrong etc.) and being a very mean person to aliens, where possible.

Curious how different people have different reactions to the same scenarios.

On Lord Cytharat, though:

I really would like him as a companion.

Me as well. When I read your original post, Morgani, I became concerned as well.... (<- me with no lvl 50s to bring in there yet)

So, correct me if I'm wrong, but it sounds like they did make at least these two main NPCs SGR only?

Yes, which gets me to thinking they won't be making the companions Bi/Herosexual, because if they would have done that, why not make these NPCs Bi/Herosexual?
"It's now very common to hear people say, 'I'm rather offended by that.' As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more...than a whine. 'I find that offensive.' It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well, so *********** what." - Stephen Fry

Hard to say. They could be going the route that I was trying to push for... or, more likely, they're going off on some wild tangent that only they know of.

Hopefully they will make the current companions bi/hero, or (perhaps better yet?) they might actually be considering making more companions, some of each romance type, then give the player the choice of which ones they want as a companion. They could even make it so that F2P is stuck with the default choices unless they shell out some cartel coins while subs get free rein....
