KotOR 2 looks promising !:)

(I did not blanked out the text as I think It remains general enough but some people may consider that it contains minor SPOILERS)

Akari (Lead designer at Obsidian) just released another tidbit on KotOR 2, this time on Romance:



/Begin Romance Thread

Romances are a little different in Kotor2, I just wanted to warn you guys. We provided more romance options in K2 (you can choose who you want to romance, and sometimes the romance problems donít even involve you and your companions at all - this'll become clearer in the game).

Not only that, but there will be instances where the influence you have with one romantic rival may cause unpleasant repercussions with another, and the jealousy wars will begin, because letís face it, your character is the hottest, coolest, most badass ex-Jedi in the galaxy. Whatís even better, is that because your character is a tortured soul with a tortured past, that just makes your character even more interesting to those of the opposite sex.

Of course, you COULD be a shallow, manipulative, evil monster, but hey, nobody else needs to realize that until too late Ė Padme sure didnít.

Anyway, all that said, weíve played the romances in K2 a little closer to the chest. This is not because I am not a romantic, but I feel that not only is the game darker than Feargusí soul, but also because life is fundamentally unfair, unrequited, and that Cheers, Moonlighting and any other series where romance was brought into the picture was ultimately devastated by consummating that relationship. So expect a more Terry Pratchett approach to romances, and a lot more subtle innuendos and off-stage battling.

Anyway, just wanted to make sure we were all on the same page and dash your ďIím going to have a 5 year relationship with X companion, marry that companion, and have children with him or herĒ hopes before they raised their heads.

Besides, letís face it, love stinks.

They lied to us!

Does cheating on the ladies lead to the dark side?

Thanks for the info Darth333. :D

But I also do agree with Prime in that "They lied to us!"
Besides, letís face it, love stinks.
I'm sensing Akari has some 'issues' when it comes to relationships. ;)

I thought the previous "there is no romance" comments were pretty straight forward.
