I mean, they are AI... they aren't real people. I dunno. Not judging others if you enjoy the rp of it, but I am just completely turned off by this whole idea, for my characters.
I don't know about other people, but when I play a game I like to imagine a personality for my character and decide how a person with that personality would react to different situations, including romantic ones.

I guess that is role playing in a way. It is similar to how I get into character when performing in a play, albeit to a lesser extent.

Nope. I'm right there with you.

I don't romance cartoons. I just kill them whenever given the chance. Doesn't matter if I'm playing on the republic side or Imperial. Darkside all the way. Kill Kill Kill.

This is a very important and socially relevant thread.

So far, the only romances that have actually interested me were Doc for my female Sentinel, Vette for my male Juggernaut, Risha for my male Gunslinger and Elara for my male Commando.

My female Operative really wanted to be corrupted by Kaliyo.
My female Sorcerer really wanted to corrupt Ashara.
My female Bounty Hunter wanted either Gault or HK-51.

Haven't gotten very far companion-wise with my female Shadow, so no opinion there.

SO, 50/50 romance approval so far. Not too bad, but SGR would really help. Or add some new companions. Come to think of it, Thana Vesh would have been perfect for my female Bounty Hunter, they hated each other so much it just had to turn into lust. When I first encountered her, I was sure she would be my next companion, but was sorely disappointed to discover she was just a random NPC everyone encountered...so I killed her.

(Straight guy, by the way. I romance how my characters would in RPGs, cause I'm invested in them...and I have an imagination.)

I think the romance stuff with companions are funny and a nice addition, just like such things work in a book or a movie.

HOWEVER. To get upset about them to the point where you're on the forums, demanding more of them and arguing with others about the validity of your obsession is just crazy. You're a crazy person. If you have a kid and still have time to argue here with other people about this, I sincerely feel sorry for your kid, truly.

I hope you take a step back and consider what you're doing, and, more importantly, why. I don't say this to troll or to insult anyone but I just find it... tragic.
Those that demand respect deserve only pity.

I think they need more romance options across the board. I have only played SW and now almost SI to completion and what I can say from just that is male SI romance option sucks. How am I supposed to be the most bad butt Sith in the galaxy and get Ashara to like me? I'm not Superman, and I'm not gonna' kiss up to a Jedi who won't turn to the dark side.

I think it all came down to a matter of budget, but in a perfect world, every character companion should have been romance able.

So after my kid is in bed, I can't come on here and discuss things I would like to see? Wow here I thought I could do that. I am arguing with anyone, other then the rude person who thinks I am not a real woman or have a kid. I would like more romances but it isn't a necessity, just something I would like. I guess I should talk about hood toggles or chat bubbles or pvp which I don't do. My child is sound asleep in bed, my husband is watching TV and I am bored and thought I would bring this up. Sorry if you don't like it but I can bring stuff up I would like to see in future content. If that bugs you, oh well. I can be both a mom and a TOR player oddly enough.

It's not. It quite certainly is Elara's.
