... dude, I knew that.
You chose a really awful article to link to then, because not only does it have a sensationalist heading, it's clearly written in a way to rile up LGBT/supportive people by taking things out of context for people who don't understand how games work. Actually, if you had never played TOR, you would just think that this is someone doing something insanely stupid rather than it just being something a development progression forces it into.
Yes, you can't rewrite the past... but if it entails making a gay planet... maybe you should just keep the game straight.
No, you're still not getting it, because you're saying that it's a "gay planet", like within the context of the game's lore it's the only place in the galaxy with gays on it, which is inaccurate. Gameplay-wise it's the only place they're able to add gay interaction to because of the limitations that were, admittedly, placed by themselves. This doesn't mean that it's the only place in the lore of Star Wars that has gay people, simply that it's the only place you can access that gameplay aspect.
It is possible I'm wrong, of course, since the expansion isn't out yet, but I trust that they arn't stupid enough to do something like that, and if they do, I doubt it'd be handled distastefully when the whole purpose of implementing this to begin with was to satisfy LGBT players.
It's not like MMO really need romance anyway.
That would apply if TOR's main draw wasn't the story/character interaction. There's people that want to be able to have gay relationships with their companion characters (a pretty big part of TOR), so it just strikes me as insanely stupid that when they put effort into satisfying a demand from the customers there's people like that that report it as something it isn't.
I'm not even playing TOR, for the record.
