Mega Rant 3: War on boring romance plots in games

Ugh what is with game company’s who hire writers so out of touch with the wants and needs of its player base? I am talking about romance options (yes that fluff that most secretly dig but try to act like they are too cool to care about) in games. It is honestly like these developers/writers do not believe that females play. Our options for such are so lackluster its nearly always better to just forgo any romantic options. I wont lie I was excited to see the potential my Jedi sage would have, since all these damned refugee characters keep taking up room on her star ship. Only to find out the one dude that is romance-able is the most boring of the lot! So I went on a mega rant, because romance in game is bland and boring and may as well be dead!

Ranting goodness:

Warning Kal went off on a tangent, cannot be blamed if listeners suffer headaches, emotional damage or any other frustration from listening to my rants!

    At first I wasn’t going to listen, because romance is not my thing; however, good presentation, and solid points! Chuckled a few times :D (“throw us a bone”… haha!)

    Why romance at all? Should that even be included in a game? Do chicks like that? Or is the male market driving development for if-then sex (ie flirting with some programmer’s code)?
