    Maybe later when they intoduce same gender relationships.

    Are there really that many homophobic people playing the game? It's baffling how uncomfortable some people are at playing a same sex pixelated character. Are your hormones so outta control that you fear you will be staring at your characters but all day? It really comforts you that it is a female pixelated butt you are looking at?

    If it wasn't for real homosexuals being denied the option, I would not want same sex romances to be implemented just to spite these weird fetish people. But I can't stop it so to each their weirdo own.. (gay people aren't weirdos just the hetro people who play opposite gender toons because they are insecure or something)

    Anyways... to answer the OPs question, Yes I will participate in romance options, especially in the Jedi consular line. It adds to the whole story of this very story driven game.

    Playing the opposite gender is not because people are homophobic and do not care to stare at male ass all day. It's usually for aesthetic reasons.

    I always played female toons in WoW because I hated male models, other than my male Worgen because I liked the male Worgen model. I feel differently about SWTOR, I like the male and female models so I'll have both males and females.

    It's not because people are homophobic...
    My Cracked articles, writing blog, and Twitter.

    The problem with the internet is parallel to its greatest achievement: it has given the little man an outlet where he can be heard. Most of the time however, the little man is a little man because he is not worth hearing.

    Surely it can't be because, I don't know, the female characters have better voice acting and animation? It was that way in Mass Effect, and I wouldn't be surprised if it's that way with some of the TOR classes.

    This is more or less the case for me with TOR as well. Just replace 'model' with 'voice acting'. I plain didnt care for the male voice acting for the smuggler that I heard in the class trailer from awhile back. I'm hoping the female's acting is better.

    Most of my other toons will be male, with the exception of the trooper (FemShep ftw.)

    Just because you're so uncomfortable playing the opposite gender because you have testosterone for brains doesn't give you the right to criticize what other players choose do do in a virtual enviroment.

    I will be playing a female character and am proud of it. If you don't like it, you can kiss my behind.

    Oh and nice homophobic attitude right there, while we're at it. The 80s called, they want their hatred back.
    Reverse my arguement on me? Then bash me right back with the testosterone for brains thing? Great defense.... You easily made my list and anyone else's who uses logic.

    Disliking homophobic people makes me homophobic? good one....?

    Don't get all huffy and make silly remarks just because I called you out on your insecurities.

    Video game people can be so weird at times and love to live up to the worst stereotypes... It's a shame they deny themselves gameplay like romance because they can't handle playing their own gender. Then try to sound all objective by saying things like the voice acting sucks.

    The only one who thinks that male players with female characters are homophobic is you.

    True, but for me it's both for that reason and for the reason that I'd rather look at the back of a female then a male when playing. But in swtor I'll also play both genders, just like you.

    Actually the majority of people who are saying otherwise are the ones who already choose to make that weird decision. Bias all around really.

    How about I take a group of people who have already said thier favorite color is red then poll everyone in that group whats the best color, they say red is best therefore any other opinion is wrong. That's basically your arguement. People who are playing opposite gender toons say they are surely 100% not homophobic therefore no one in the world could have the insightful opinion otherwise.

    This is getting off topic, I'll leave before you all get surgery because you are surely not homophobic but hate seeing yourself in the mirror every morning because it makes you uncomfortable, or maybe you just hate your own voice acting, or maybe you don't like the flow of your own body so you must change it with no deeper meaning.

    (if the ban-hammer hasn't already struck this will seal the deal, god forbid I have my opinion...)

    1. Stop predicting moderation. You're not good at it and it could be considered backseat moderation, which is pretty bad form.
    2. You're allowed to have an opinion (as is everyone else), so long as it's posted in a way that doesn't appear to be a blatant troll or flame.
    3. You're inching toward the line.

    That said, let's drop the whole homophobia thing and get back on topic, or this thread will be locked.

    I'll probably play both, but I will relate better to a guys voice, when it comes to immersion, so playing guys will be my choice. I think it would make a difference for me over other games simply because SWTOR is fully voiced over (and I'll be hearing my characters voices alot!)

    For those guys wishing to play girls, it's best just to say that much and leave sexuality out. Name calling doesn't usually help with any justification for a decision.

    That's enough with the accusations and homophobic comments. Any more and I will paint this thread blue.

    That was quite the derailment >.>

    anyways to restart the discussion!

    do you think there will be bi sexual options to current companions added? i like some of the ones they have already, having to wait for (possibly)new companions for those of us wanting SSR kinda blows...

    And what will happen if you fail your chances at smooth talking? is that when the gifts come into play? cuz i cant imagine if say, Vette was being emo about u being a murderous bitch she'd leap into your arms.

    We know absolutely nothing in regards to how the system will work with origional crew, or newly added. It's really almost a mute point to even begin speculating.

    I imagine that if you blow it, you blow it. It is moat likely like a quest. You've already done that quest, so you can't go do it again.

    If you "blow" it?

    What are you hinting at here, trolls?

    same way I do in real life WITH THE HIPS!

    seriously though, I think for my main (SI) I'll be avoiding romance, just because I plan on making him an evil bastard...

    but for my alts, especially my Smuggler I plan to be a smooth pimp, want at least one wife we can be polygamous right? As long as the wives dont all find out
    Reading the A song of Ice and Fire series is like playing with an adorable puppy, then someone comes up out of nowhere and shoots the puppy, then punches you in the face

    It makes sense for an SI to avoid getting laid.

    How can you be a powerful force user when you're leaving pools of liquid force on every face and lower back in the galaxy?

    It takes a lot out of a man.
