Fair enough - with the staggered release, I was a few months behind so I was RPing that character with a dash of meta-knowledge about the potential scumminess of it. Might be that I subconsciously steered away. (Plus, I played him to be the 'zero DS points/Light level 5' character for the Legacy thing so he's too tightly-wound and goody-good to have made the first-to-fifth moves on her.)

Quinn an exception? The Quinn romance is textbook sexual harassment. Your warrior repeatedly makes advances despite(or possibly because of) the fact that it makes Quinn visibly uncomfortable and he actually requests that you stop. If Quinn were female and this were a romance for male characters, the Bioware offices would still be burning.

That's a good point, from what I've seen.

Well, I'm continuing to make my feelings about this subject known in other threads even though I usually get harassed for doing so. The space PvP is pretty stupid and honestly, I haven't found PvP to be all that exciting.

I still can't believe they prioritized a freaking EWOK over companions that would allow SGR. An E-W-O-K. And no, not for a second I believe Treek was planned/developed anytime close to launch, certinately not before they heard loud and clear the complaints about lack of companion-SGRs.

I had high hopes about 8 new space companions that they would 'cover' this issue but nope, looks like they're basically placeholders with few lines when people don't have all companions from the main game yet. So back to square one it seems. Again.

At this point, I think they could easily go back to the drawing board and rebuild the game from the bottom up.

Sorry, but can everyone please remember to mark spoilers? I'm pretty sure I know all the major plot points of Quinn's story and I haven't even finished Balmorra on my SW.

Don't worry, I wanted to drop Quinn out of the airlock the second he tried to get on my ship, so I never learned his story line. In fact, I really wish we could swap out companions we don't want.

Wow, it has been ages since I poked in here! And . . . still no new info. >.< This thread sure is interesting though!

I gotta admit, I find the new space PvP Companions (erm, I think they need a different name, they seem to be mere shells compared to the current ones) to be a tantalizing, frustrating hint of what I imagine many of us story and Companion fans would love to have added to the "ground game". So far we've gotten/are getting, in terms of new Companions:

1. A droid
2. An Ewok
3. Space PvP only "Companions"

. . . so I really hope that the next actual Companion we get is finally a more human like one so they can include a SGRA. Well, actually, I wish they will add two like that, so the gay fellas don't get left out (I'm gonna go out on a limb here and assume that if they only add one, it will be a bisexual female). And I also want a nexu mount with a sparkly pink saddle and a bell collar (complete with sound effects) for my Smuggler.
