That said, from what I've seen of the companion quests in TOR so far, they are pretty lack luster. I would really like to see more in-depth companion quests like ME2 had, the Kasumi one seemed particularly cool to me. Technically this seems possible with what they already have in the engine, so fingers crossed.
KOTOR companion quests were MUCH more in depth.

No. Its like a G-rated porno flick. She calls you "big guy" and kiss. That's the end of the story.

Once agreeing to get married, all I got was one single cut scene in which we kiss, and a few notes in the mail box.

End Spoiler

Companions are pretty lame in this game and do not really offer anything in depth.
which class quest? i already did the great hunt thing, i'm nearing lvl 40 i kno there's more to my char line, but i don't want this to take as long as end game.

You DO have to get pretty far in Mako's story before any sort of romance stuff happens (as in, the lvl 48 combat quest for her) and then it happens fairly quickly.

Actually, once you get married, she starts sending you funny in-game mail with certain npc-gifts items. (Which I kind of feel bad for regifting to Blizz)
Yes, a female BH can romance Torian. It's ridiculously easy to... him being a guy.

Her conversations led me to the 2nd quest she's given me.
I just had this same conversation. I was wondering if by her saying this I won’t be able to romance her any further. Anyone else has this convo and still been able to romance her? Or am I just worrying for nothing?! The quest was called "All work and no play"

Big deal. The advantage of a mmo is that its an ongoing project. In time swtor characters will be significantly fleshed out

P.S. HK-47 doesnt agree with you

dangit, I accidentally abandoned it without realizing it till later, so now I can't do it (tried talking to mako on my ship, didn't work) so ya, had to create a ticket to bioware to see about getting it back so I can do it.

I just finished the quest where you beat the lvl 48 person, no specifics due to spoilers, and I just finished hunting the voss bounty, again due to spoilers, and am on the tyrant again. How close am I to romancing Mako?

You can't really begin her romance / background until you've cleared Act 1. You can raise her affection to cap but it'll do nothing before that point.

You can marry her before boarding the Tyrant as long as you max her affection and complete her companion quests.

Once you've married her, I think there's one more conversation and then that's it, no more until Bioware add it in.

She starts sending you little sweet mails with attached gifts afterwards. They can be useful for leveling affection with your other companions.

Easiest way to level affection with her ISN'T gifts.

Do repeat runs of Black Talon, choose all the right options and you're looking at around 440-450 affection per run. This can be easily (and quickly) done as early as 25, having a speeder, avoiding every mob you can and near abusive use of space bar to skip scenes can have you doing a run in as little as 10-11 minutes. If you really want to save time, mix gifts in with each run and wham, she'll be capped in no time.

The Black Talon runs don't seem to work for any other BH companion but it seems to work for the first companion of every class.

Honestly, I farmed her affection to improve my mission and crafting times and instead got rewarded with, quite possibly, one of the best Bioware characters I've seen yet. I'd recommend romancing Mako to anyone playing a Bounty Hunter. Not for the romance but simply to get a glimpse at one of the most endearing characters I've seen in a video game recently.
I love Mako's voice and her dialogues. Her voice is sweet and sexy without being overacted. I agree, she's one of the best characters I've found in a video game. I developed some sort of affection to her.

She's played by a versatile and experienced voice acress, LACEY CHABART: (She played teenager Penny in Lost in Space film). I love Lacey's work.
