But whether or not you support or oppose this issue and the violence, etc., it does need to be talked about especially when young kids are involved. (15 or younger) and they do play this game. Kids that young are, for the most part, unable to make mature decisions for themselves and need parental guidance (and hopefully Bioware will also take some responsible action). Do you want your kids (I personally know of one 11 year old playing) deciding on whether to sleep with, romance, or marry their companions (I also know at least one player who slept with their companion)? This also includes brutal murder, cutting off heads, enslaving, etc. and getting rewards for it.

Maybe Bioware should consider a kids only game and an adult only game and require proof of age...

And I'm not trolling or trying to "rile up" people - this subject is being discussed here and elsewhere in these forums. If it bothers you or you "don't care" then ignore it.
I think you read more into my post than I was intending. I was specifically speaking to the SGR issues and how America often seems 'anti gay'. You're brining ERSB, voilence, and general 'adult decisions' into the mix.

I do find it funny that most cultures think that a child killing someone (something that you'd hope they'd never actually do) in a video game is ok, but sex, flirting, or choosing a mate (something that said child will certainly do) is frowned upon.

Whether i believe SGR is right or wrong has nothing to do with a game, especially when you have the option to do or not to do.

Most Companion romance is so sub par ( when compared to ME series) its not really worth it
ALL the companion romances are sub par. I never understood why people would QQ over not getting a sub par romance option.

Please update us on if there will be more INDIVIDUAL class story Bioware!

(PS: I am going to keep bumping this thread with this post until I get an answer)

Note: I am not asking about the coming expansion, I'm asking if we will get anymore individual class story at all in the future.

There should be an option in the settings menu where you can turn the SGR dialogue/choice on and off and it should added or removed from the game when activated.

This should make everyone happy, some people want it some people don't, we should respect both sides.

I myself don't want the same sex to proposition any of my chars it just doesn't sit well with my childhood memories of the Star Wars universe. I play a fantasy game for fun and for a bit of escapism and this would ruin the immersion of the universe I've built up in my head.

I see the turn on or off option as the most viable option to give everyone what they want.

BioWare is trying hard to ruin the game it seems. Not only is introducing SGR now stupid, it's lore and immersion breaking. Thanks for ruining the future experience. There are also lots of kids playing this game which are bound to get confused. I will probably end up cancelling my sub and you can keep your planet if this keeps going. Enjoy loosing money. The least you could do is to make it disabled by default and if someone wants to ruin their experience by adding something that doesn't feel canon and in line with Star Wars at all, you could add option tick box. I really wonder if this is what Disney would want in Star Wars MMO.

I don't geht it, how can it be not lore, if Humans are one of the species you can play? Open your eyes, you will find gays and lesbians everywhere, probably some of your working colleagues are gay.

From a business perspective, gays are the best consumers/customers (double income no kids). Considering this, SGR even makes more sense for EA.

BTW, Disney, doesn't Captain Jack Sparrow looks gay to you too?

The star wars universe is fantasy so its possible gays and lesbians don't exist. Its subject to your own opinion and how you view the universe.

Its why and option to remove or add the dialogue should keep both sides happy (I'd hope)

Im not against it I have gay friends, but it does go against my persective of the universe for my story.

Dear Jeff

Yesterday we had a nice discussion on Red Eclipse in the Quesh local chat. I feel the topic was important enough to link a screenshot here.

The discussion started as random whine from an f2p player about hardships, he appeared to be a guy of very low income unable to pay for the sub. The discussion following his rantings was positive enough so I compiled it into one image and would kindly ask you to go over it.

Since the guy was nice enough to answer a very personal question i have edited his name out.

BTW, it would be great if we could put images in the forum posts, at least by reference. A good screenshot sometimes does say more than ten paragraphs of text. Thank you
