Since the Sith continues with a "lets negotiate" after a flat no... I know MY Sith wouldn't do it (She's Myren the Pure, after all!), though she almost certainly would take up a female non-slave's voluntary offer of sex (paid for or otherwise, I think at this point... poor Myren!).

Yah, Kira's one of my big hopes for SGRs as well. It was really difficult for me to stop playing my JK, but I felt like I was missing out on so much by not being able to romance her with my female character.

If you've looked through the thread a bit, you might know that news on SGRs is pretty scarce, but the latest is that they're coming this year. Many of us are really hoping SGRs will be added to current companions, but we won't know until BioWare says so. Any other characters in particular you're hoping for? My other big hope is Mako; play a Bounty Hunter for, like, 10-20 minutes and you might agree.
the 2nd paragraph i totes agree with!

3rd paragraph, i'll have 2 check bounty hunter out. JK was my first class and character so i have a lot of exploring to do yet! lol

Really?

Now every time I see Kira in a slave girl outfit on the Fleet, I vow to place one of my male companions in a slave boy outfit for the sake of equality!

Which means all male companions for all my toons (Imp and Pub side) will have lovely little matching slave boy outfits in a day or so,

It's not universal, though. My consular didn't get any dark side points for having a relationship with Nadia. And for certain in other classes, even seducing strangers were sometimes LS choices. It has to do with a number of factors about you, the person, and the situation.

I may be off-base but I think that the point being made was the 'framework' per se isn't related to Tivva accepting, nor does it even really have anything to do with Tivva. Instead I think it's related directly to the fact that the female Sith Warrior is implied (if you choose that option) to have interest in other females (which theoretically is the case irrespective of Tivva's or Vette's opinions on the matter). That implication is free of unfortunate...ness, it's simply the context it's placed within that (probably intentionally) makes it a bit wrong.

I suppose there's a need to take artistic license and world management into account. I mean if the devs approached it from a direct viewpoint of Passion = DS for everyone then they'd need to comb through every bit of dialogue and go, 'Is that passionate? DARK SIDE POINTS FOR YOU!' and everyone would be running about throwing Force Lightning at people, choking accountants and having little Sith-babies all over the place.

I'm guessing it's a contextual thing. The Force is life, but one of the primary motivators to maintaining the existence of a species is inherently Dark Side? I don't think so. I think it's more a matter of it being DS when your passion overrules your greater sense of balance, or when it sways you from a more inherently LS path (which probably still doesn't explain the no-DS-for-snogging-Nadia thing).

As a reminder, we previously suggested a shift in focus in your questions. As development plans are always subject to change, questions about future features will often get vague answers which can be repetitive and sometimes annoying. With that in mind, the development team is more interested in questions about current in-game features or systems, or questions about why development decisions were made. You’re still welcome to ask questions about future features and we’ll continue to answer them where appropriate – just expect the occasional ‘soon.’
I feel like they are trying to tell us something =(

Eh, that quote has been at the top of the Q&As for a long time. Looks like they first mentioned it back in the one from March 23. So, no, that doesn't mean anything.
