A rather sedate article that fails to demonize anyone and reports the existence of a controversy that actually exists within the player base....

...the unmitigated bias!

Seriously, old news. Not everyone is supportive of including SGRAs in the game, and people do not have a moral/social/whatever superiority on the issue one way or another.

Get over it.

Actually it will be -less- than what we see in the DA series. In the DA series, they went only slightly beyond a kiss before the fade-to-black. Here in SWTOR, the kiss misses and then it immediately fades to black.

One thing is not supporting, and quite another is vocally opposing it, often in an unethical manner. I obviously don't support it, but I wouldn't really mind it if it were properly marked with [FLIRT], and if it does not start, unless this option is selected.

So yeah, equal getting-some-tail opportunity for everyone, as long as it isn't aggressively pushed on an unwilling player (a la Corso going all creepy if the female smuggler strats to flirt with him, then wants to end the relationship). Was my problem with Dragon Age. I was surprised when Zhevran started making advances towards my male character in return for regular friendly treatment. His persistence was, to put it lightly, annoying.

Why do you think it would be any different from any other romance option that's already in the game, all of which start with the player clicking on an option on the conversation wheel that is marked [Flirt]?

Really? If you had just gone through 3 pages or searched for the text "gay planet" you would have found the thread that was started and closed in the last 2 days.

I expected that if it HAD been posted, it had already been removed. I wasn't looking to spam or cause trolling, I was just honestly amused and wondered if I was the only one

Apparently I am, everyone else is just pissed that I mentioned it again ^^;
