The peeps behind the much anticipated Star Wars MMO, Star Wars: The Old Republic say that same-sex romances will not be an option at launch but may be later on down the road.
Also, they pretty much admit that they will be launching a game that will not have all features activated yet and gamers who purchase it at launch will have to wait for patches and updates before the full experience will be available. Boooooo!
Official statement from the SWTOR forums:
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.
