Female Romance Options

+1 for fairness.

Though I'm having a hard time understanding why there would be female gamers that would want more romance options anyway. Not trying to sound like a jack*** or anything( ) I just don't understand.

I mean, it's not in their nature right? I think I'm confusing myself.

Lol..

Well a question to anyone romancing Corso, I read somewhere that another person said he hasnt been initiating personal chats anymore. Last night three or four times his little speaker signal went on and it said he wanted to talk to me on the ship, so I hotfoot it to the ship, get there, click on him nothing! No chat.. grrrr... he's playing hot and cold with my smuggler.

This happened a number of times. I still havent got him to the point of saying whatever it is he wanted to say. So maybe I have to level him up further or maybe it is a glitch?

Has anyone else noticed this behaviour in their companions?

I don't see what is so hard to understand. Bioware includes romances in their game because they know players enjoy them. While male players usually enjoy the sex scene at the end, the girls tend to prefer all the chat and flirting options and seduction. Just look at all these girls crazy about the romance with Alistair in Dragon age 1, you'll understand.

And depending on the class you play, girls only have like one romance option with some stupid and non-attractive character (like the one for the female Jedi knight... o_o)

I'm pretty sure he was being sarcastic hence my emoticons. I think. Probably.

I'm playing a Sith Inquisitor and was bemused to find that my first romance-able companion
Spoiler
is voiced by the same actor who voiced Oghren in Dragon Age. He has a great voice and is very well played but I just can't think of my companion character in that way without conjuring images of Oghren.

Very understandable. The romance options in DA and DA 2 sucked (Anders) but I liked Atton in KOTOR 2. I hope the Imperial Agent romances don't suck.

The male romance companion for the IA is unique. Personally, he makes me very happy. I can see others being offput by his nature, though.

As can be told from my sig, I am also a huge fan of female Warrior/Malavai Quinn. He's so respectful and so easy to totally fluster.

Malavi Quinn is for the female Sith Warrior, right? he looks interesting. Does he prefer bad or good actions?

For the female Imperial agent, I hate the first "bad girl" they give us as a first companion. But I'd love to discover Vector (the only romance option for a female player Imperial agent), he seems quite cool.

I think companions choices for romances in SWTOR are actually very, very Very bad... And actually are maybe even worse for male characters? (definitely atleast on republic side!)
I think that most people wants to have his/her romance-able companion running and fighting with you (and joinig conversations..) all the time. I surely do. But in most cases you are forced to use 1-2 other 'usefull' companion. So your favorite companion will stay at ship 99% of time.. Except when you smmon him/her to give some presents and then speak with them on ship each 700+ affection? What a pointless waste. That companion coments on quests are way better than whole romance 'line' anyway. (and you can get that affection points more 'naturally')

As a Jedi Sage (heal/dps) I need tank which i have only 2 Male tank options.
Jedi Shadow (tank/dps) can use a healer - only 1 male option available.
My only 1 female comapanion is melle dps in light armor - useless for any important fight.
I hate that lizard 'thing' i must carry with me. Leaving him behind to die and just resumon him. Did bioware really thing we will 'care' about this horrible companions?

As a Jedi Knight, (at both advaced classes) you want a healer - only male option available.

Smuggler - (dps/heal) Wants a tank - Only male tank available.

Trooped is the only republic option for a male character to have Usefull companion being your romance option (a 'by the book' soldier medic... ) Not a great option, but waay bettter than disgusting lizard thing which I'm forced to travel with :/

Except trooper it seems to me republic side should be played with female players only?
Poor me, i'm a male but don't like playing for Evil Empire, it's just not my taste. So no interesting companion or romance at all for me.


On Empire side, only BH has Mako as great sidekick. Mako looks great, if only was not on empire side... :/

SW - starts with Vette, great. But later will switch to Male healer!

SI - Same as Consular, no female option.

IA - Well, I actually don't know this class at all, seems to have female healer, so if you can Tank it's the second Empire best character/companion combo?


Why there is not a single female companion tank? :P

PS: Yea, I know. My english is horrible, if anyone wants to pick on it, go ahead. I don't care
