    So, is this EA/Lucasarts' way of trolling Bioware?

    It's more likely because of the Teen rating. You don't even have sex scenes, the screen just fades. Bioware is regressing!!

    I always thought that Kath Soucie and Jennifer Hale could make a mint on the side by having incognito phone sex as the characters they played.

    I think they still have dignity, unlike Bioware and fandom.

    Nah, it's that EA fears parents with money enough that they don't want to be seen promoting 'gay marriages' in their games.

    And the horrible truth is that disallowing implicit MMORPG puppet sodomy is likely the first real bone of contention between Biowhore and their EA masters.

    (Yes, I used "bone of contention" on purpose.)

    Yeah, this, basically. I'd imagine tOR to be as child-friendly as possible, with little mention of same-sex romance, but with magnitudes of Ken and Barbie dolls slashing at each others with phallic items while rolling for initiative in dialogues with the creepy uncle yo-duh.

    The parodied "joke" is even weaker, but meh, I agree. Still, it's what it is, you're supposed to "romance" a bunch of goddamned puppets in a game where you could get it off to a player-controlled lesbian twi'lek or whatever the hell those things are called.

    I mean come on, how much lower and more desparate can you get.

    it all depends on why you play to begin with and what relationship you have with your toon.
    if you're one of the people thinking the toon is "the awesome you" in your dream universe that life was unjust enough to prevent you from getting born in, that's already fucking low and some npc romance is not going to change that.
    if you're one of the people for whom the toon is just part of the interface, same gender romance just adds some lulz that makes the grindy boring parts more endurable.

    plus there's the lulz from the "i'm no homophobe, i just don't want to have to see any hint whatsoever of icky gay stuff in the game" tards over in the official thread.

    Could be amusing to start a butthurt drama thread about how someone doesn't want to pay extra "just because" they're gay. The lulz and butthurt potential of that is pretty good.

    Not gonna do that though because fuck that.
