Okay so your post is hilarious ---- but personally, I loved Vector! I realize the options were him or nothing, but I found myself drawn to him anyway.

I'm kinda weird though

I rest my case.
*chokes and dies*

Are you serious?! xD Please tell me this is serious. As sarcasm it is funny, if it's true it is HILARIOUS.

I'm very fond of Kaliyo and would rather romance her than anyone else. I can't wait till same gender romance is available! I swear she flirts with me already.
Let them see what is not there, and feel what does not touch them.
When they no longer trust their senses... that is the time to strike.

Oh geez, you guys are ridiculous. I'm a girl gamer but I don't give two ***** about the romances. If they're there, cool, I'll do them. If they're not very good on one class I'll just start leveling another in a while. Want a good romance? Watch Casablanca. They're not the main gameplay element and the argument that you won't be playing a class because the romance is crap gives fuel to the opinion that all girl gamers are shallow idiots. Romances are an aditional feature, not something that makes or breaks a game. There are plenty of good games featuring no romance whatsoever. If you're bothered with Vector, chill out and roll a trooper. Aric is dreamy xD

Whoever wrote this particular romance - why is the only option for a female Imperial Agent a dehumanized bugman? The flirt options are so ridiculously contrived, he sits there nattering away about his ants and all of a sudden I come out with "HOW ABOUT SOME ALONE TIME WINK WINK NUDGE NUDGE" and he's all "that would be nice, also THE HIVE IS CALLING ME I HEAR THE SONG OF THE UNIVERSE!"

The whole point of a good romance subplot is the object of your character's affections is meant to have some likable qualities. This dude is repellent, it's like trying to flirt with a rock. A rock covered in ants. I'm keeping up with the romance sub-plot purely because I keep thinking "There's GOT to be something that saves this from being completely awful...right?" and like a car accident, I just can't quite look away.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying romance sub-plots should be lovey-dovey cuddlefests, but this guy kind of makes me throw up in my mouth a bit.
I just got to this part in my questline and I gotta say, I totally agree! I was so excited to finally have a male companion, but at first I didnt even know what he was talking about when he brought up "rub forearms" LOL. That being said, I'm totally holding out for when Bio releases same-sex romances, cause I'll totally be tappin Kaliyo XD We got a nice little Bromance going on right now

As a guy, I really enjoyed his character as a friend. I can understand not liking him as a romance option though.

Funny post.

It doesn't terribly bother me. My Agent is pissed off at the world most of the time anyways. Bugman is too crazy, and Doc is too old...Whenever they open up same-gender relationships, she's going to be all over Kaliyo though! <3

After leveling a female Bounty Hunter and following the romance quest line with the completely adorable Torian, I was looking forward to the Agent's love story. I guess I'll be giving it a miss.

Great post, OP, and thanks for the warning.

why would an imperial agent romance a bug? it doesn't fit into the role of the character, at all, unless you a truly strange individual. female IA needs more, that's for sure. or at least enable the same-sex option

He isn't truly a bug, he is a kilik joiner. Which means he is a human with weird black bug like eyes who has enhance senses and communicates with a hive of sentient humanoid insects. He is like Legion from mass effect 2, mixed with spider-man, and a diplomat.
