virtualvoyages: an old worn book on a black back ground, a glow at one corner of the book (Default)
What aspect of the game upsets me?  Upsets seems rather strong wording, but there are a few things that seem...off.

There's the (previously mentioned) inequality between male and female characters as far as flirting and sleeping around goes.  (And it's disconcerting that F!Agent reacts to sleeping with someone to maintain her cover as if it's a bad idea.  M!Agent is never portrayed as regretting his sleeping around.*)

And, of course, there's the (also previously mentioned) lack of same sex romance options and the question of whether they'll implement them well.

Lastly (and this is a problem with nearly all games), there's the whole measure of a mook problem.  If you're going to have diplomatic options with the named NPCs, it seems bizarre that you slaughter your way to them first.  Add on the fact that the Light Side of the Force appears to oppose killing, and the game really is in need of some other options for characters.

*Though I would have considered walking away doing the *facepalm* "what was I thinking?" thing entirely appropriate to hopping in bed with the Sith lady who oversees the Bonus Series on Nar Shaddaa.  But that may only be because in my agent's case, he only flirted with her to be difficult.  Being taken up on it was... unexpected.  (But escaping out seemed wrong, since the error seemed completely in character.  Even if he doesn't make a habit of flirting with Sith (who he generally doesn't like), but she was half way decent (for a Sith) and the flirt options seemed the most appropriate dialogue options...)
