It's simple really...Not everyone believes that "all love" is OK. I would never teach my child that a same sex relationship is OK since it isn't natural. I am sure I will be scolded for posting this, but I know that this was directed toward my comments. And if free speech is welcomed here, I am sure I am doing the right thing by defending my beliefs just like everyone on here that is pro same sex.

It occurs in nature in other species, it's natural. A dolphin in the wild can't do anything unnatural, by definition everything it does is what a natural dolphin would do.

 

Beyond that, not everyone believed that mixing black and whites was "ok", but I'd challenge you to find more than a minority who hold that same view today.

 

You're free to defend your beliefs, and the rest of the internet is free to call you a small minded bigot (because you are).

Some people believe that they are above animals.

Why shouldn't it be in a game? Heterosexual romance is in games. Violence is in games. Death. Torture. Slavery. Racism. All manner of morally and ethically questionable is explored in gaming, so why would homosexuality need to be excluded from this? Games are more than just "simple fun" now. Some deal with more complex issues, so it's expected that they can and will go down roads that occasionally make people feel "uncomfortable", and feeling uncomfortable is a good thing. I felt uncomfortable as hell playing through Spec Ops, and it was one of the more rewarding experiences I've had in a game lately.

Or is posting a different viewpoint? It is possible to defend a few aspects of BioWare's handling of SWTOR, even if you dislike the game. I'm extremely critical of BioWare Austin, SWTOR, and how the game has been handled on the whole, however I fully support them implementing this feature and expanding upon it, and have voiced that opinion in multiple places. Does that mean I'm on their payroll, despite the remaining 95% of my comments about the studio/game being negative?

You can't choose to believe facts or not, facts exist regardless. We are animals with highly developed brains. There's no real debate to be had there. So if you don't believe it, you're rejecting a fact.

You know what an RPG is right? Role playing game.  Relationships are part of it (at least for bioware games), so since not everyone is hetrosexual, sexual orientation has everything to do it.

Although I agree with people who say the devs could have spent their time better. There is a lot Tor needs that I would place above this.

I can give Bioware a break for Makeb. They are at least trying, sort of. Their execution is pretty lacking I think, but they are making an effort, and they will be continuing that effort by integrating those options into the rest of the game.

I can't really give them a break for most of the rest of the game though. It doesn't matter how friendly they are to any given community, most of the game is pretty weak.

For every large, complex problem, there is a simple, clear solution that also happens to be absolutely wrong.

However, I do not feel that either EA or BioWare deserve "a break" where SWTOR is concerned. Prior to launch many, many people warned BioWare about the exact problems that the game ended up having when launched. The BioWare devs arrogantly ignored feedback that they asked for while having parties and getting SWTOR tatoos and bragging that SWTOR was going to be the MMO messiah, while EA suits proclaimed that they were "gunning for WoW."

And this expansion shows that they still lack the ability to foresee the logical consequences of their actions. They deliberately put SGR's into one little section of the game and then they're shocked when people refer to Makeb as a closet. Really? They couldn't see that coming?

A major part of games theory isn't just the math that makes up power balance, it's also about human behavior and predicting what people will do. The BioWare team just keeps on proving that they lack that skill.

No. EA/BioWare deserves no breaks. People should keep on hammering them, in a calm and adult manner of course, until they finally learn to listen to their customers.

 I like this game, but this post nails it. Well said.

My son is now a US Marine and makes his own life decisions. I feel that I have done my job as a parent in raising him to be an honorable and respectful young man. He has asked me my opinion on homosexuality and I have told him my thoughts on the subject. That is where the discussion permanently ended. He is now a heterosexual adult and is free to make his own mind up on the subject without anymore input from me.

That's an opinion. Just because you say it's a fact doesn't make it fact. If we were just like animals we would be living in caves grunting at each other. I'll believe we are on the same level as animals when a dolphin builds a rocket and lands on the moon.

Anyway I reiterate...

Please fix SWTOR Bioware, fix the real problems, not issues that clearly are just used to promote the game.

That is the most intelligent comment yet. Very well said!

Nobody is rejecting that as fact.

Some choose to live above animals. Pigs roll around in their own poop, should we do that too? Dogs eat other dogs poop.

Excuse me if I choose to live above animals.

So, we should never attempt to deal with any controversial topics in video games ever? That would relegate them to mindless entertainment rather than an engaging form of media that has the potential to stimulate and provoke thought.

 

I'm offended by the blatant violence in first person shooters, and that violence is causing a divide in the US due to current events. Should we not make any more violent first person shooters?

 

What a cop out argument.

First lets start with the obvious, Bioware deserves a break because this isn't Bioware. The talent and the leaders are gone. This is a group doing what they are told to do by EA. So yes, Bioware deserves a break, but thats because it's gone. Cutting some slack to the group making all these mistakes, well thats up for each individual to decide. I choose no. 

 

Secondly, we aren't talking about this as their only mistake or mistakes. I have a better movie title to use "EAwares series of unfortunate decisions" though thats not exactly the title of Daniel Handlers (Lemony Snicket) book/movie I believe it is far more fitting. Players would likely cut them a break if they have not repeatedly made decisions that caused them or others to ask players to cut them a break. When they make a mistake they don't even like to aknowledge it unless they absolutely have to. Absolutely have to means they have lost a significant enough amount of money. Then they like to come out and ask or have others ask players to cut them a break rather than fix anything lol.
