So you added same-sex romance options, great. But wait, there isn't also an opposite

I don't buy the argument that just because the first version of the game had only opposite-sex romance that it's ok that a new content patch has only same-sex romance, the goal should be for content to have both.
You realise that the Lady of Makeb on the Republic side is bisexual, right? And most of the "not Lord Cytharat" Flirts are available for both genders?

Bioware still aren't entirely sure what they're supposed to be doing with all these romance and flirt options, fine, but your initial post did come across, perhaps not as an attack, but as someone whining that all the stuff they've had up until now isn't enough because "Oh my god, I can't romance the gay guy with my lady!" - congratulations, you've encountered the one gay character in the entire game.

Everything should be equal eh? Yet you complain that after they gave us 3 opposite sex relationship options on all classes as well as numerous non companion OGR when they give us 1 SGR that it's not equal?

Oh and please try not to complain when BW actually listens to the community. They have proved time and time again that they don't give a **** what we say and pissing on the one time the actually listen is just going to make things worse.
Sounds like a good opportunity for violence.

Male republic players can have a mini-romance with one of the main female characters.

If you want to count 'flirt' opportunities, republic and imperial male PCs have 2-3 options (mainly with the quest givers for the seeker droid/binocular quests).

Female hetero flirts/romances are pretty much non-existent. There's one flirt option for a female imp...I haven't seen any on the republic side.

I'm willing to bet that there are more male on female flirt prompts in Makeb dialog than any other combination (female on female, male on male, female on male).

There you go.

So you are claiming that the female on Makeb can be romanced by a male, yet it was definitely not an option as I played through on my male character. So I don't understand why you are claiming that.

Honestly, I don't have a male toon so I'm not speaking from personal experience but others have stated it's possible to woo the scientist, Lembda regardless of your character's gender.

That is the claim and it's correct. Sorry that your mind is apparently blown by your own failure to notice an opposite-gender romance, but I can't really be bothered at the moment; my male consular is a bit too busy sitting in the corner with a young geologist, making out. Dibs.
I make useful, game-expanding suggestions.

20+ opposite-gender COMPANION romances and countless opposite-gender flirts/hook-ups in the base game and you complain? Don't be ridiculous

Uh, every other flirt and romance option in the game is straight, not really feeling a lot of outrage because they didn't add more to be "fair" with the whole...2 SGR flirt options that came with the expansion.

The funny part to all this and most posts on this forum...what ever made anyone think, things had to be fair? o.O
"It's now very common to hear people say, 'I'm rather offended by that.' As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more...than a whine. 'I find that offensive.' It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well, so *********** what." - Stephen Fry
