Make Light Side Jaesa Willsaam Romance-able

Title more or less says it all, would just like to get the general communities feedback on this, to relay it to BioWare.

I, like many other SWs(who have leveled up as Light) I've spoken with, were disappointed to finally get Jaesa only to find out we are unable to romance her as Light Side. I know I could have made her dark to romance, but her character and mine would lose all their compelling story elements and features for LS players. I loved the going against the norm feel of playing a LS SW up until end of act 1, when It just felt like I had been playing a storyline that was added as an afterthought. So much story emphasis has been placed on Jaesa, much more than any other making her an increasing intersting and compelling companion. I don't fully understand why the option isn't available. She is no longer a Jedi, part of the reason she joined is because I showed her the folly of sticking to close to a rigorous jedi code was.

BioWare, I would really love to see her added as a romantic option, either in a future patch, or if the story expands further for each class.

Thanks.

It's all about choices (or, at least, it should be). And having choices means that things could not go as you would like to, or that I will experience something that you will not (and vice versa).
As a Dark Sider, Vette is far from an interesting companion, always *****ering about Sith way of life; yes, I could romance her, but I will not.
So while I understand your point, I think that those small things that differentiate the "life" of the chars are nice and add replayability (as a Mara, I'm tempted to play a Juggy just to see the Light Side warrior choices...)

Yeah, I don't understand the Bioware rationale for light side Jaesa. Is she a Jedi, or isn't she? I was under the impression she leaves the Jedi order because you convince her that the Jedi code is corrupt.

I may now be playing with 140 ms ping (that sometimes jumps up to 240),
but I'll still kick your behind.
Enjoying the game again on Jung Ma.

It doesn't make any sense that you can't romance her if she is light side, if you play a Jedi Knight/Couns yourself you can have a romance. On top of that... she is not a jedi anymore, she is a light side Sith (like you if you play LS), you are her master.

I am a bit disappointed that you can't really influence your crewmembers or get rid of them/have more choices, as a light sided Sith having Quinn with me feels like begging for a bullet in the back at some point, although LS choices become very very limited later in the game, where your basic LS choice is to apologize to someone before you slaughter everyone.

Someone either got very lazy there or it's just really bad design and they don't care.... you can't even try to reach a peaceful solution, ended up refusing a few quests because they were just too cruel to justify doing them as a LSS.

Playing a LSS was fun at the beginning, trying to change something from within, but they really lost that when you progress, also pretty monoton to always have to do quests for some Imperial Intelligence guy and noone else. Take Taris for example where the basic goal is to destroy the entire planet.. where is the option to at least say "hey, maybe destroying a entire planet is pretty stupid", it's like being forced to do things although they go against everything you stand for.
