I think I'm more disappointed with Treek being introduced and not Lord Cytharat and Lemda or a new companion that could be SGR than Treek being an Ewok.
The problem is:

Cytharat:

I believe it is just flirts for the time being, but I'm saying that I'm happy that they're atleast building up their way towards what was promised to us, however I do feel somewhat frustraited that they havn't brought in something that was meant to be installed pre-launch and then, due to time constraints, promised it'd be "soon" post-launch and yet it's been about...a year so far? Yet still not done.

However I do believe that they need to keep the income coming in by making bug fixes, new content and so on to bring in new players and keep old players. Unfortunately it feels at times as if SGRAs are very low on the list.

Also about the Ewok...I just had to laugh when I saw her cause I was thinking "God I hope she's not romancable" I would definantly like to see a few new and old companions SGRable.

Her as a healer role wouldn't be bad, because a lot of the healer companions aren't really in the medical field. Like you said, they just get put into that role.

Theran, Mako, Talos, all come to mind as not being healers. Doc, Elara and Lokin are the only ones I can think of, that actually come off as being in the healing profession. Quinn I would've thought fit the DPS role more than the healer role.

But I mention them because we have connections to them already. In fact, I'd actually love it if they made multiple (SGR or not) NPCs from planet quests as companions!

You've definitely got a point there. I guess healing technologies are easy enough to use that anyone with a modicum of training can use them.

I definitely liked Lemda (in spite of the <spoilers>), and Cytharat isn't too bad for a Sith Pureblood male. I don't think I'd object to either of them being companions.

I agree about planet quest NPCs as companions too, there are some very interesting characters that seem woefully under utilized. Sadly a couple of the more interesting ones

Spoiler


However, I can't help but think that there is such a thing as too many companion characters. It is part of the reason why I'd like to see some of the current companions adapted to SGRAs.

If they limit some of the companions to being strictly Republic or Empire aligned companions, it may be less of an issue. Possibly at some point have one companion leave if you get to a certain point, so that you can switch your crew about

Probably wishful thinking, as it'd probably be to much work for BW to even consider even if it was a CM option.

Does anyone have a clue what this means? It seems like it should mean something, but I DK what.
Jesus are you dense or what, she was asking how Bioware could include homosexual content in ME2, after it had already been released. I answered her, they could do so by release a downloadable content. Fire island is a famously homosexual vacation spot. By setting a downloadable content there they would be including homosexual content in an already completed game. You people have the sense of humor of dead wood.

Guy's just angry because his cryptic nonsense was revealed as being cryptic nonsense rather than the cutting and classic repartee he was hoping for - instead of trying to explain himself, he goes straight (hah) towards insulting other people's intelligence as a defense.

Genious.

Also it's fairly obvious that he hasn't read the thread nor cares for the subject, because otherwise he would know how often people waltz in here with sound bite ideas, thinking they're witty and new.
