Best Sith Warrior Companion to romance?

Which one is the better companion to love as either male or female player? I'm curious cause while Jaesa is all Dark Side and all, I kinda like Vette cause she's not mostly stereotypical-Sith like Jaesa can be at times if not all the time.

As a male, you have the two options you mentioned. If you want a mate who actually approves of you, you'll take Vette if you plan on going LS and Jaesa if you plan on going DS. If you're playing more neutral, you're going to end up making both/either of them cross with you repeatedly (Vette gets pissed any time you choose a DS option, and Jaesa gets pissed any time you choose a LS option), but it's nothing that companion gifts won't fix.

Female Warriors only get one option, Malavai Quinn. Take him or leave him. Fairly massive spoilers for Warrior story incoming; don't click if you care about being surprised.

I found Vette to be the much more interesting companion/foil for my DS warrior. She has the funnier in game quips, she's not totally LS (or anti DS as the previous poster stated) and I most enjoyed the finale of the companion/quest arch as a DS warrior + "relationship" component.

She dislikes slavery (obvious) and random killing/brutality of "innocents" but she does not mind when you're ruthless towards other pompous sith, moffs or really anyone in a position of power with a chip on their shoulder. There are some DS affection gains and a few others that are merely -1 losses (mildly annoyed rather than "pissed"). I did "cheat" a couple of times and simply brought a different companion in if I really felt I wanted to take the DS option and not take a big hit. What she doesn't see won't bother her, right?

To have it work/make sense, I did take a few LS hits when dealing with her directly during her personal story arch. I looked at it this way, I'm a ruthless bastard to the whole galaxy but I need that one place to comfotable without fearing that my special someone will jam a spoon in my eye as I sleep. Vette is that someone, in my opinion. I treated her as an equal partner rather than a servant/slave from the very beginning and thought the whole thing wrapped up quite nicely. Plus I always like the "opposites attract" mo as well.

Jaesa is fine and dandy too, and obviously works well with a DS warrior, but the "rawr killem all" does get a bit stale after a while.

I've seen them both but Vette is by far my personal fav.

Female Warriors can also romance Lieutenant Pierce. He's probably a much better choice, anwyay. I'm 100% certain that Malavai Quinn is why they removed the ability to kill companions in beta.

Personally, I don't feel like this counts. When most people talk about companion romances specifically, they are referring to the companions that you can take all the way and marry. You only get a small handful of flirt options with Pierce which, at the most, culminate in a short fling and nothing else. I don't equate "one-night stand" with "romance", heh.

All these sorts of questions are a bit problematic, since it's always to up one's taste which companion romance is the best. Loads of people pretty much loathe Malavai Quinn, but if you ask me, he has the best male romance in the game. I have a soft spot for stoic people who are almost obsessed about their field of profession. I always found it pretty adorable how he first tries to make the warrior quit the [flirt]s by calling the behaviour unprofessional, but then understands that warrior isn't going to stop this unprofessionality and allows himself to respond to her advances. Then, when he finally falls in love with warrior, he seems to look at the relationship the way he looks at his work: everything should be at peak efficiency! This may feel a bit cold and clinical, but anything else would be out of character for him. He's very stoic when it comes to his personal life, and will never change.

For male warrior who is not "I murder puppies for fun"-kind of dark side user, I'd pick Vette. She's funny, cute and just a little crazy. I think every sith lord should have their own Vette: the sith tend to take themselves a bit too seriously and a cute little twi'lek occasionally telling them how weird they are would surely fix that problem. Works well for light side characters and dark side characters who still do show compassion to some people, or are willing to treat Vette as an exception and show her their softer side.

I haven't romanced Jaesa yet, but judging by her conversations with a female warrior, she'll be a perfect match for those who want to murder anything and everything. Pierce is really more of a one night stand / friends of benefits kind of arrangement, and I wouldn't call it a romance.

Jaesa is too creepy for me. Eww.

I had one conversation recently where she says she got drunk and screwed some random soldier and might have killed him. Then follows with, "but I want you". Ewww. I don't want some filthy ****. I really don't like how they handled the character. It's like a flip was switched and she went from Jedi to full blown sociopathic creepster. There was no character development at all to bring her to that point.

If I was the Sith Warrior I wouldn't be able to sleep with her on my ship. Have to have one eye open at all times.

Can't speak for LS Jaesa. I'd imagine she's decent enough.

Wish we could kill companions .. two I would kill in a heart beat are Malavai Quinn and Qizen from the Jedi Consular. Sheesh, that overgrown lizard annoys me. I got treek just so I wouldn't have to put up with him.
