The point is that there is enough similiarty in the two that it is a potentially serious trigger for someone who has had that real life tragedy to find something like that in game.
aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?

If I may back the conversation up a little, I'd like to address this. As far as being afraid to be 'forced into an SGR' I'd like to point out that Makeb will only have SGR options with NPCs. In order to get any romance progression or the possibility of a FtB with an NPC, you have specifically follow the [Flirt] options that are presented. Usually they are the second option on the conversation wheel. (Or first a lot in the case of Smuggler.)

If an NPC of the same sex flirts with your character, I'm very sure Bioware will have a "Uh... yeah, no thanks buddy" or a "That's real sweet sister, but no. Now, about my mission..." option. NPCs will not get around to a FtB if the [Flirt] options aren't chosen. I know early in my Smug quest I riled the crap out of Corso by flirting with another smuggler NPC. But in the conversation preceding the one that would seal the deal, I shut him down by choosing a non-flirt.

Another way to avoid seeing a same sex FtB in a non class setting is to level with a friend. Even flirts that have the option to go to FtB will not if there are two or more people in the group.
Spoiler


As far as companions go, when SGRs are enabled for companions there absolutely needs to be a 'No' option for every romantic conversation. There should already be a way to tell Jorgan there will be no nookie on the Thunderclap. Nadia's little sister romance needs to have a 'I'm sorry, I got carried away, this can't happen" option for people who change their minds. This unfortunately means a bit of revoicing, but what better time than at an expansion when new voice is being added?

This post got long. Sorry.

The sad thing is that people still have to complain about an 8 month old issue. This is why so many have concerns about how BW desires to handle sgr. We have no proof that they have changed they're thought process about romance arc story lines and available opt outs. They certainly are not in any hurry to clarify for anyone either

all gave me staggeringly unpalatable reveals immediately before Progressing The Romance Plot, or trying to. To progress a linear storyline that involves repeated sexual advances long after the player has asked to stop is...well, sick.

Bugs like these make the male companions in this game look like the "Nice Guys" from OKCupid (and other dating sites).

I'm wondering if anyone's reported this as a bug through the in-game portal? Anything come of it?

I know I reported the Tharan bug (where he seems to think that you had a fling and all your conversation options also indicate that YOU think you had a fling but no fling was had). Response: "has been forwarded to the department, thank you...blah blah" Closed. I would be willing to bet that these other ones have been reported too.

I reported it and some others did as well.

I'm not sure if it's fixed...I'm rerolling another Consular now but I don't plan on talking to Tharan tbh. That seems to be the only 'fix' for this atm (don't speak to them)...now that I've read this thread, I won't be talking to Jorgan when I roll a Trooper for sure, Legacy unlock be damned!!

Ah, don't do that, Jorgan's a cool guy
If you don't want the romance, just make sure that on any conversation where there's a Flirt option or that sounds flirty, pick the option that is clearly 'no.' Edited to add: The writers don't seem to get the whole 'letting someone down gently' thing, so cold rejection is what you need here.

My pure eternally celibate Knight managed to shake his sinful wench of an apprentice off fine enough. Rest of the game just assumes I didn't. Towards end of lord Scourge's storyline, he talks about my coming offspring. Dialogue wheel player gets is something along the lines of

/ I have humped many a lady
- I sure love humping them ladies
\ I cant wait to start humping them ladies

WHAT LADIES IM IN CELIBACY AAARGHH
