BioWare relents on same-sex relationships

The developer initially said it would not allow same-sex relationships in its upcoming Star Wars MMOG, The Old Republic, but has since relaxed its stance. A post on the game’s official forum reads: “Due to the design constraints of a fully voiced MMOG of this scale and size, many choices had to be made as to the launch and post-launch feature set. Same-gender romances with companion characters in Star Wars: The Old Republic will be a post-launch feature.”
