    I think you meant to say, "Let's all sharpen our pitchforks for now".

    Something tells me you were already rotten.

    Romancing the Soul Stone would be a great name for a machinima movie. =)

    They are changing the model because of EA. The game is still more than profitable as is.
    WoW having more subs than SWTOR is the same thing as Justin Bieber having more youtube plays than Tupac. Just because its more popular doesn't mean its good.
    Warcraft Lore has gone from one of the most vast and interesting stories in all of gaming to a bad Thrall Fanfic by Chris Metzen.

    This is the only useful post in this thread thus far.

    If you're bored enough to want trivial and minor changes like SS romance, maybe it's time to move on. Honestly, who cares?

    Any number of people who are members, or support the LGBT community.

    Your post is incredibly disrespectful.

    if only that was the case then okay.

    just look at most of the people posting in this thread. LBG? Most likely not.

    It's still the same people that want it, a bunch of boys who sit around "HERP DERP LEZBIANZ R COOL". Boys who want to see the story, but refuse to make a male character. Usually come up with some idiotic response like "I don't wanna look at a male characters ass". Well seriously who stares at their characters ass to begin with?

    It doesn't matter what you think, because it is just an assumption. You are widely judging an entire group of people from forum posts. Most of which are gender neutral, since there is no need to bring gender into the equation. "Most likely not". It is not up to you to determine that. It doesn't change the fact that you and the other poster are being completely insensitive to the issue.

    It's okay for people to be a bigot, that's personal life choice, but a passive aggressive bigot is the silliest thing I've ever heard of.

    What? Really? Nothing I said was being a bigot. As I said if it was LBG players being vocal about it that would be fine. I would have 0 problems with that.

    Check these forums. Check the SWTOR forums. Check other communities. A big number of all the people complaining are guys who refuse to play male characters, but think "lezbianz r kool lol". It's not much of assumption.

    My problem is that straight males want to experience in game relations with a woman, but don't want to be a male character. I'm sorry but it's STUPID. A character with preferences already known is not going to change how it feels because some kid who just watched some porn thinks lesbians are cool.

    BW is taking the right approach so far in not changing existing characters. Other BW games had multiple choices regardless of gender. They apparently plan to add more in SWTOR.

    Should they include characters that are bi or gay like other BW games? Sure. Most characters BW did right with the only exception being Anders in DA2. Who was too pushy about it, and wouldn't just be friends.

    In the long run romances of any variety are pretty freaking minor and aren't going to keep people playing or bring players back. Their priorities should be on new content to save a declining player base.

    The only companion in Makeb exp is HK-51. So I guess his vibro-"sword" will be available to characters of both sexes.

    "Hello organic organism, bend over and relax"
    - HK-51
