Favorite Romance Relationship in SWTOR?

As my only romance option for a female Jedi Knight was Doc, I followed it along quite a distance but I am starting to wonder if Doc isn't just playing me. >>

Would've been nice to have a second option. Feels like Yoda was handing out companion romances. "Do! or do not! There is no other option! murhahaha!"

My favorite is Elara Dorne. Her accent is amazing and her demeanor is the right combination of hard-working with a soft side.

Other than that, when they add light-sided Jaesa as a romance option, that one will be awesome, too.

Favourite is Vette by far. I play a light-side Sith and she just fills the story nicely and adds a nice spice to it. Makes sense for me! Also Twi'leks are just awesome
When I first started my warr, I didn't even think about romancing a character, but I really ended up liking her.
I mean she is so worth it. I like that she warms up a lil later, because it makes it more realistic. She is such a sweetheart really. Love her sense of humour.
My Jugg is lvl 41 and happily married. I really rushed the whole romance because I wanted to see it ASAP. I just wish they would add more content.. Truly hoping so!

Also got a really cute letter from her, in it she told me that she hadn't yet told me her dres size if I ever wanted to buy her anything.

Vette ftw!

I've done the Raina Temple and Elara Dorne ones so far, I thought it was cute having Elara as a by the books Republic officer trying to resist my advances only to fold in the end. As for Raina, she has the most adorable voice.

I know that bounty hunters are ridiculously awesome in their own right, as are troopers, and I've even heard that troopers and bounty hunters are, according to many people, some of the best, most fun, and most powerful classes in the game...but there's nothing like tearing through enemies with a lightsaber and the force as opposed to just shooting people with guns. Is the Bounty Hunter storyline any good? I've heard it's pretty good but it just feels weird playing a Star Wars game with a non-force using class when really, the vast majority of the series, including movies, books, shows, and games, are centered around jedi and sith.
You're certainly not the first guy I've heard who wondered about the actual combat motions made by the Bounty Hunters versus force users. For me, I knew going into the game I was going to roll with a non-Force user. I was NOT disappointed by either the smuggler or the bounty hunter, by any means, not when it comes to story. It's the story that's kept me from really going anywhere with a Jedi, for instance. Their tales, to me, seem very "meh".

I believe the reason I found the Smuggler and Bounty Hunter stories so fun was mostly the personality of those characters. They're just downright fun to play, as their dialogue and choices so often leaves me laughing my butt off. A Jedi tried to force persuade my Bounty Hunter into walking away from a fight, to which my Bounty Hunter calmly waved her hand in reply and said, "And you will realize what an idiot you are." Moments like that are priceless, and they're many of them throughout the story.

I also like that the Bounty Hunter is utterly independent. On several occasions, she has the chance to state, emphatically, "I am NOT an Imperial." There's a core of stubborn independence to the character, an attitude that says, "I will NOT do this according to your say-so but only as I think best." I like that. The Smuggler is similar. In both cases, you end up with a character who doesn't kiss anyone's butt or meekly accepts someone's direction just because they wear a pretty uniform.

And while there's none of that swishy sound you'd get if you were playing around with the Force, there's something incredibly satisfying about making a "death from above" pot shot against four or five fellows on the ground and watching them all fall down dead.

Them's my thoughts, anyway.

You havent heard much because there isn't much to hear. Convos with Andronikus are bugged, and after a certain point you can no longer talk to him (it'll say he wanjts to . . . but the icon comes and goes, only once have I been lucky enough to be next to my ship when the icon was lit, in that instance I had 3 back to back convos with him, but although I know I have some waiting, nothing for days and literally thousands of affection points . . . well, one of these days they will fix it I hope, as the story has potential.

For Fem!Sith Inquisitor, Andronikos Revel is fantastic. After using a customization kit to change his appearance (he looked like my awesome doctor's husband, and that's just awkward) - his romance is just fantastic. I mean, guhhh. <3 <3 <3
There's a romance in the game. It's just a Bad Romance. (RAH) (AH) + (RO MA) MA + (GA) + OOH(LA)

I found the Kira romance too strange... From a teacher student perspective it felt too wrong

Elara Dorne for troopers was fun though

You get to see her go from rigid, widely disliked ex-imperial to an actually fun, emotional character

My full-priced copy of the game did not include any of the romance stuff that was given for free to other players. For this reason, I will never look at anything from BioWare/EA/Lucasarts ever again.
