Female Romance Options

Ok, so I am playing a Jedi counsler shadow (not that this will have anything to do with my class) and have not yet finished the game, but as a female am so far disappointed with my flirtable options (of which there have been two so far). I am level 30 am I am hoping beyond hope that I will have a relationship option for a big buff male who is horribly alien looking. Don't get me wrong, I am a huge fan of Bioware and Dragon Age is my second favorite game (Zelda will always be my first) but I have noticed that when it comes to female romance options...they are found wanting. The best (by best I mean buff wise) romance option Bioware has produced for females was Jacob Taylor in ME2. Other than him you have the option of aliens! My hope is that Bioware will cater to the female population and give us a big buff guy option...maybe a commando? Big buff sith trying to change his ways? There are lots of possibilities here!

Would be much appreciated

P.S. I still love the storyline though. This MMO is the best I have ever played.

I play a male Consular and have barely been able to Flirt with anyone.

I guess, more so than even Jedi Knight, the Consulars are not much when it comes to romance options. As I read so far, Consular male can only have 1 in-crew romance while female can have 2? So you choose the right gender actually.

I've been really confused. I know that you can flirt with this one dude (but apparently it doesn't count as a romance?) and the other dude you get much later in the game, and he is romanceable.

But..

I. Don't. Want. Him. I'm still confused about our romance options - do we really only have one?

Btw, ME2's best was Garrus with Thane being a close second. Jacob annoyed me. :> I don't mind aliens~

Yea, the romance options in the game are very lacking for most classes till level 30+.

Whats weird is the fact that depending on your class and gender you get a different number of romance options. Why does Sith Warrior have 2 females and 2 Males, yet Bounty Hunters have 1 each?

One way to help this is hopefully the inclusion of SGRA's, something Bioware said was "coming soon," as even if they add in companions per class to solve this, that would give us at least 1 option per class.

Some classes seem to really get the shaft when it comes to romance options, and like a poster above said, be lucky you choose the option that at least gave you 2 choices.
In your pants. I'm alluding to your priorities being in your pants. Like, your wiener or weird lady parts that no one understands because they're all tucked in. That's what I was going for. -Coyote

Ok I am playing a Smuggler and I have noticed there are some NPC's you can have a short flirt with but I never chose to pursue those (maybe happened about three times in my leveling until now, I am level 25)

I decided I wanted to romance my companion which is the ONLY reason I chose smuggler as you get a relatively normal looking guy to beging playing with, his name is Corso Riggs and I have customised him to my liking. So he's cute and relatively easy to romance as he fits with my moral views and approves of nearly everything I do and has liked nearly all the gifts I have given him. H

I have him over 3,000/10,000 in the care bar thingy and he has intiated about 4 romantic conversations at various intervals and finally last night a kiss and a request to court my smuggler lass. Hehehe I loved that!

Im not sure how much better Bioware could have done it so far, I am pretty pleased with his attentions, I am just hoping eventually his random comments will become more intimate, like calling me Dear or darling instead of captain etc and using the odd flirtatious comment too would be nice.

Oh I found this wiki which posts all the diffferent companions for each class, its impresive how much work Bioware has put into customising each classes experiences and I am looking forward to experiencing all the romantic stories.

Oh and I have also done the first(?) of Corsos personal story missions which wasnt too long and quite pleasant too.

The amount of content in this game is staggering!! I am really looking forward to seeing how others romances and relationships are going! I would recommend Corso as a sweet/shy boy type of romance, most will love that about him.

Agreed, Vasdenjas. I've frequently wondered if BioWare has any females working on the romance storylines. I was hoping SWTOR would break the trend set in ME1-2/DA1 of two-dimensional, male-ego-centered romance conversation options.

As whiny as he was, Carth from KoTR had potential.

I couldn't agree more, aureliex. Thane and Garrus were the best. Jacob may be nice to look at, but I'm very tired of hearing "we have a good thing going" and not to push it. Grrr.

I'm ready to throw petulant-Kaiden in that trash compactor and space him.

My highest SWTOR toon is only 13, so apparently I have a ways to go before romance options open up

Zoomcat what class are you playing?

Gosh I am so tempted to start making other characters and playing with a few to see their stories and romances but the trouble is Im afraid it will make me less immersed in my current characters story line and development! I am enjoying her a lot and the crafting otions I chose but am so impatient to experience everything!

I also found the Jacob romance to be really bad, I literally cringed in my chair with embarrasment when he started his chat up lines. The other two lads were very sweet but I could not for the life of me get romantically immersed because they were too alien looking for my taste. I think I must be a bit narrow minded lol. I would have been more interested in romancing the machine character who had Shepherds armour on his chest, I thought he had a crush on sheperd and for some reason wanted to hug that shiny little fella!

I'm a girl!

I know there are less female players than male player on SWTOR, but I'm disappointed to see that there are way more options of romance for male players than for girls!

Male player can romance aliens, twi'lek girls, etc, most of them are very beautiful... but girls can only romance humans! (except the Catar for soldiers, maybe)! why that? can't we girls go out with a twi'lek male, a Chiss male, etc? what's wrong with that?

In ME we girls could only have Kaidan as a male romance, and he was human. THEN they understood that we wanted more aliens for romance and added Thane and Garrus to flirt with for ME2.


Please Bioware, think about girl players too. Give us more choice! aliens, but also bulky and manly men as well! you know girls like romances and you should try to attract female players like that, too ^^

just my opinion

If you want to flirt with every female in sight, try Sith Warrior male.
Every female quest giver I've come across has given me some form of Flirting option.

And you get Vette and Jaesa. It's almost like the devs want everyone to be a male SW.
