    So, how will you approach romance in TOR?

    I know Bioware mentioned that they said romance will lead to darkside points since the Jedi Council forbids it and all that stuff. But that restrictive way of thinking is what caused them to slip up when Palpatine decided to royally screw over the Republic. Yes, this is centuries before those events but it's still relevant. As for me, I'm gonna be pullin' a Bindo.

    As Jolee Bindo once said:

    "Love doesn't lead to the dark side. Passion can lead to rage and fear, and can be controlled, but passion is not the same thing as love. Controlling your passions while being in love, that's what they should teach you to beware, but love itself will save, not condemn you."

    I'm gonna try my hardest to be lightside and romance. At least for my JK, lol.

    How about you?

    I'll likely avoid it. I tend to roll female toons, and since I'm a straight guy and there's no same sex romance - I'll feel immensely creeped out romancing a guy.

    Im in the same boat. I intend my main to be a female smuggler, so i won't be bothering with that aspect of my toon until same-sex romances are put in.

    I'll likely avoid romance. Just not one of the traits I would imagine my character would have, were they real.

    Cool

    I'm going Imperial Agent...




    As you can see, It doesn't take an agent more than 30 seconds of video time before they're all up on that tail. Yep... They're the James Bonds of a galaxy far away...

    I'll be a dude checking out female options. On my Consular I'll tell the Council too bad, I'm getting with Nadia. If I get dark side points, too bad! I'd be more grey than dark though.

    Smuggler/IA will be fun with love triangles? 3 somes? cheating and not getting caught?

    I'll explore the options, just as in Mass Effect and I guess chose when I have to.

    On my male characters I'll go for the romance options, though on my female JK I dont know if I'll be going for same-sex romance or no romance at all.
    Depends on how it'll feel once I get the chance.

    "Due to the design constraints of a fully voiced MMO of this scale and size, many choices had to be made as to the launch and post-launch feature set. Same gender romances with companion characters in Star Wars: The Old Republic will be a post-launch feature. Because The Old Republic is an MMO, the game will live on through content expansions which allow us to include content and features that could not be included at launch, including the addition of more companion characters who will have additional romance options."
    something to look forward to heh

    My Smuggler is going to sleep with everyone. Not so sure on my BH.

    I'll approach romance like I do in every Bioware game with the option. I treat it like a mini-game and try to get the highest score possible.

    cant say I am really interested, seems a bit silly to me tbh. It seems a bit arbitrary to give every class, instead of it being a 'test' or a rare thing. Just seems a bit forced to me to feel like natural part of story.

    Yeah basically this. I might roll a male alt to try it out though.

    Im gonna be a light inquisitor (think that can be interesting)
    Does romancing give me DARK points? Why is love for a sith dark?

    I would assume so that all classes have the same light/dark side progression. I don't really know why anyone other than a Jedi would get dark side points for being in a relationship though...

    If it does give dark points, then its because "passion leads to [???] which leads to the dark side" or something like that. Atleast romancing should not give LIGHT points, as that'd be foolish (when the dark side encourage their followers to party and romance others and so on).

    As a lesbian IRL and be playing this with my girlfriend from day 1. I think i would be fun for same gender romancing in game; it would only be fair. However, not including it in launch is simply avoiding media backlash from conservatives. We all remember the mass effect fiasco. I'm not happy with it.... but this game will be great anyways and it'll be added later so no biggie
