Gender Equality

Why is it NOT possible to have a male dancer and slave outfit or an overweight female character but it IS possible to have a female dancer and slave outfit or a male overweight character?

It seems like the star wars universe is promoting women as needing to be perfect, slim, and sexy, but males can let themselves go and have to dress modestly.

I know it seems a silly issue to bring up, but if the game is going to have gender equality, it should have it in more than just romance options.

I found those outfits and the option of being overweight ridiculous.

1.Who in their right mind runs around on a battlefield in a slave outfit?

2.Our characters go through intense training and battle on a daily basis, why would any of them be overweight?

I have no issues with overweight people, but to make being overweight a possibility with our heroes is unrealistic in every sense.

Those outfits are an abomination.

Then remove the female ones and change the male body type 4 to something more heroic.

Gender equality is gender equality. Have it for both or have it for none.

Well, there are some female toon SIs and JCs.... Maybe not in their right minds, but definitely eye candy. lol

Agreed, both of them are just ridiculous, regardless of gender.

I meant in real life or any realistic character in a story.

Now, now... Just think how effective it could be in a battle scenario!

Heroic jedi, leaps across the field of battle, saber flashing, hacking down sith after sith
until...
he beholds the most gorgeous creature he's ever seen, sweat soaked blue skin glistening in the shimmering sun,
And as he gazes at her seductive form...
his eyes tracking slowly lower down her unclad body,
then... (Now you choose, how will the story end?)

Zey: "Kal, you know that the Sith are bad news. They're evil. They've always been the cause of endless war and carnage across the galaxy."
Skirata: "Oh, that's a good one. 'My decapitations are more morally valid than your decapitations.' Only difference I can see is that they plan to end up with trillions dead, and you do-gooders manage it by accident."
