Vanguards running around in bikinis makes me cringe

I think they should add bacta tanks on fleet filled with various bikini and relaxed outfit characters each with severe blaster burns, lacerations, blunt traumas.

It looks absolutely absurd.

There is no way in this universe that is anything but a teenage kid or a very immature adult.
Probably true, but you can't dictate to others what they find entertaining. Well, you can try, but you'll just end up frustrated.

Lies!!! All lies, I say! You will like this post and you will like it immediately, if not sooner!

There, I don't feel at all frustrated

But...smugglers and force users always wear normal clothes! Don't you watch the movies? Only Troopers and Bounty Hunters wore heavy armor, and they always die from one blaster shot!
"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

Which begs the question...who designed/does the maintenance on all the equipment the heavy armor users from the movies use? 'Cause not only is their armor defective as all heck, their blasters are clearly beyond borked since they never seem to be able to actually hit anything.

Unless it's Han and Luke rescuing Leia while in stormtrooper disguise...funny how that works

You mean the part where they break out Leia in the jail and they arent wearing their helmets? the scene before that when Luke, Han and Chewie (in restraints) are waiting for the elevator (when they have their helmets on) what was it that Luke said to Han as they were getting on the elevator? =O
I'm not really a noob...

Or you could just look away and not worry about it.

You know, the same thing you do in real life when someone wears something that offends your sensibilities?

The only thing missing is high heels in this game. LOL

THIS.

(Well, except for the 13 year olds part and no demand part. There's demand. Just not from me.)

I just want pieces that are a middle ground. I don't mind people wanting things to be modest or things to be skimpy... but why can't there be a V-neck once in a while (that doesn't have some kind of collar)? We have all the way to the neckline (or higher), and we have skimpy. I'd just love in between. Preferably without some odd belly plate (elegant/luxurious dress *cough*) or other attachments (aspiring knight leg dangly things), but I'll take what I can get.

..............~IRL female, market full of clothes and nothing to wear...
