SWTOR: Watch your options

Many Star Wars: The Old Republic players were happy to hear that same-gender romance options will be added in the 1.7 patch, expected tomorrow.

 

This was announced by BioWare's Jeff Hickman back in January. Not much to say here, really. I think it speaks for itself.

That being said, I think putting in the SGR, as limited as it currently is, was a positive thing for gaming, players, and society in general. While a game is just another form of entertainment, it can and often does say something more about our culture and society. It is no different, in this regard, to movies, music, books, television, etc.

Also, while I am effectively snickering at making an unintended conversation selection, I encourage and applaud people to Role Play their character as they see fit.

In this game, as in life, who consenting, responsible adults date, love, marry -whatever -  is not my concern, nor is it my place to attempt to pass judgement.

You can find more Pontius Morgan comics over at The Minion Slayer's homepage.

What do you think of the forthcoming same gender romance options? Let us know below!
