I don't think the OP is entirely off-base. I am irritated that half of the clothe that look very respectable on my male characters look ridiculous on my female ones.

None of my female characters are the clubbing type .

- Arcada
The Arcada Legacy (Ebon Hawk)
Ord'os (Lvl.55 Sorcerer), Naresa (Lvl.53 Operative), Jagrafess (Lvl.19 Marauder)
Nydus (Lvl.54 Shadow), Toclafane (Lvl.27 Guardian)

This may sound a bit coarse but I did not bring the coarseness into this game, you did BioWare. If I wanted to see that crap in an mmo, I would play an adult mmo where you could have your every sick, twisted fantasy fulfilled. I lead a family friendly guild. There is nothing family friendly about sleaze wars.

To make matters worse, I play on an RP server. I am a rolepolayer, I lead an rp guild. You are turning the game into a joke with this Sleaze wars crap. Half-naked club dancers I can understand but jog-bras on jedi and sith? Seriously? Please remove this crap from the game or at the very least RP servers. I am a star wars fanatic but I am no prude. I have read all of the novels and graphic novels on ToR. There is nothing canon about Breasts butts, big hair, string bikinis and lightsabres.

You are going to lose a lot of good paying customers over this BioWare, me and my guild for starters. Enough of this crap, do something about this BW. We have a profanity filter, how about a sleaze filter? Make it client only, allow us to freaking turn it off or something. And please, please remove sleaze-wars from RP servers.
To a certain point I'm in agreement. However what I do find is that the "sexy avatars" work as a good indication of who to avoid in the game.
When I see a stupid guild name, I can avoid the majority of people in it. As a rule stupid guild names have half a dozen people in, easy to avoid.
When I see stupid names then go on ignore. Really don't want to play the same game as these people, so they are on ignore, we don't group, I won't get them in a FP or Ops group.
With the exception of a tiny percentage the "sexy avatar" people are also a good indication of people to avoid. It's not just a realism thing, it's just so stupid seeing some of these characters dressed in this way. I've said in the past that the developers are appealing to a 16-28yr old ***** demographic - if those are the people who are spending the most cash then I can understand why.
Just avoid them - it's what I do.

Pretty much this, just ignore them, they're just attention seekers.

I agree with you, but Bioware can't control how freaks dress. They give players what they ask for, some players dress like weirdos...it's how every game works. Don't blame Bioware for weird people...
All warfare is based on deception. Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected. If his forces are united, separate them. If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near. A leader leads by example not by force.

I can see where the OP is coming from to some extent as it just seems to be something that is unneeded. It's pretty common these days to have sexy artwork, particularly in a game that attracts a lot of nerds that actually enjoy looking at drawings as a sex object.

On the other hand, to be offended by said drawings is equally as absurd

This ^^ I to must agree to a certain extent there is nothing more ridiculous then getting in a group with a commando in a bikini with no shoes and a big assault cannon on their back. I can tolerate the sexy tops on the jedi and sith but for some reason half naked troopers with assault cannons really annoys me.

Well, they can control it when a gear set applies differently to female characters. In that, chest armour piece that COMPLETELY covers a male exposes the stomach and a lot of cleavage on a woman.

Its not that I mind seeing the above, but there is no choice and it can make some armour sets look ridiculous.

OP is either trolling, a control freak, or both.
