Andronikos: Also a d***

Corso: Derp!
General flirts in SW storyline: Ugly old men. And Quinn.
I think so too. But to be fair, a lot of the male romances are:

Kaliyo: EVIL skank (I love her, but I can see how

Temple: Boring, then oh so creepy
Vette: Sick, twisted, and Stockholmed
Jaesa: Really demented. Just...really demented.
Ashara: Jail bait mixed with social worker. How can this go wrong?
Mako: Like dating your kid sister
Risha: Spoiled brat
Akaavi: Boring
Elara: Boring
Kira: (OKay, I have nothing bad to say about this one)
Nadia: So freaking twisted, I can't even start on it...

Although men get a lot more choices so less sympathy. But still...an awful lot of the female LIs are pretty twisted as well. (Or boring. Or, in Temple's case, both.)

Ooh, how can one get those? I can just imagine my IA and Vector talking their larva for a walk...

Another Vector fangirl chiming in here. He is the only romance option I've ever pursued in this game, so I don't have much to compare it to. But I love him. it's not just because he's basically the only companion who works for soloing with my healing Operative. It's not just because he wears light armor and runs around looking like a wizard in robes and a staff. It's not just because I think bugs are awesome (I think H. R. Giger is a genius, and I'm a fan of the Buggers from Ender's Game).

Vector is actually a nice guy, not an "acting nice to get in your pants" guy. He doesn't have a cliched dark and traumatic past, but his alien nature is dark and different enough to keep me interested. He manages to seem chivalrous without being sexist, and he has a gift for poetry. On the other hand, I can totally see why somebody would be creeped out by him as a romance option.

I might be the only person in IA history to think this, but I thought Watcher X was probably the coolest character in the entire game. If he were a romance option, I would probably start another character just to, uh, interface with his circuits. I see him as the only person who is eye-to-eye with the Agent on everything. Of course, he is probably incapable of anything resembling romantic feelings.

With that in mind, I did choose to

I liked Vector! Temple is blandy mc blanderson and Kaliyo is... just no. I also got a flirt option for SCORPIO, which is horrifying. I'd way rather have Vector.

You're not alone. I thought Watcher X was fascinating enough that after leveling a sniper I modeled my operative after him. I just swapped races to mask it.

I agree about Watcher X as well, I thought he was an awesome character and I want him to return to the story somehow. I figure that despite the choices you can make it's still left somewhat open enough.

I made a cyborg smuggler that looks an awful lot like Watcher X as well.
