So, I heard bioware was considering getting rid of the dark side points for jedi romance responses. Did they?

I haven't reached that far, but some romantic options are dark side...

It's funny how in KOTOR the message was "love will save you from the dark side", and was thumped into your skull by Jolee Bindo, Bastilla, Carth, etc. But in TOR it's the Dark Side option.

would make for a really "interesting" relationship.

"oh, honey, i'm going out for a girls night out, i'll probably won't be home for several days, most probably i'll be very tired when i do come back.."

Jedi husband:

*audible sigh, peers over the edge of the newspaper*
"ok, honey, tell the male strippers i said hi"
*turns to the sports pages in the paper and continues reading*

Following the jedi code strctly denies you your emotions, so your companions would be little more than "business-partners" , getting emotional and thus dipping into the darkside slightly won't bother me, it's thematic imho.


Join the darkside, we have all-you-can-eat buffé's at the strip-joints

It is only darkside for the two classes that more or less take a vow not to take part in a romance and are oathbreakers if they do.
The remaining six classes do not get darkside points as far as I know.

Why do people keep citing Jolee as some kind of infallible guru on this issue? He has no leg to stand on whatsoever, his own experiences and failures run directly counter to his words in this issue.

I could have sworn this was all make believe, so anything goes at any time? Maybe I'm having an issue telling the different between fantasy and reality..

You get Dark Side points as a Jedi because if you peruse the romances, you specifically say, "Well, the council is wrong, let's do it anyway" (paraphrasing).

i hope this is not true, let me point this one out the Jedi council is not all right, and sometime they lean too the darkside. without mean to only because they don't know everything

Apparently you need to review his story better.
