In which Dasin remains single, forever.

I know. Mako is 18. 19. Something like that. But she reads 14 to me, and I just... I can't. There's no way I can have Dasin, super light side as he is, go down that road.
But the game just... tries. It really, really tries to force it. Often.
So when Torian finally expressed an interest in Mako, Dasin was overjoyed... from an entirely selfish perspective, because now, finally, the game was going to let him interact with Mako as if she was any other member of the crew. Without racking up dark side points.

Dasin can stick to crushing on Thendys Noori, and being depressed over how that worked out.

I hate it when the writers try to force your character into a romance in the game. Recently, I played a NWN mod that literally forced your character to choose a romance at the end. There was no "I don't want a romance" option. I didn't like the majority of romances in that mod anyway, because they felt like friends with benefits instead of any real romantic connection, therefore putting me off them altogether.

In an unrelated note, how come every game with same-sex romances as well as opposite-sex ones never have a "sorry, I'm gay/lesbian" option to say to the opposite sex ones, yet there's always a "sorry I'm straight" for same-sex? It seems like every player character is forced to be straight or bi, and it's frustrating.

meeszy:My nwn game is a swamp of mods, and I am not going to stop modding, tell me what mod you are talking about I don't believe I have played one which forces you in to make such a choice, and I delight in bad writing at times.
So... for the guy it is either Mako or sith women? That is one hell of an absolute. Even though I have no idea who Mako is and I am not going to start alting again.

But you don't need such things bg1 and poe are great and they didn't have such things. Some of the greatest games didn't have shipping and if the story is good it is good. If a romantic substory is good it is good, otherwise well, in both those incidences I just rolled a female pc because the substory was substantially better.

But was there really three options to flirt?
When talking to one of the companions there was always this flirt in the wheel and I was afraid to click it for fear of upsetting (SPOILER), from the smuggler story.

@wildmageguy: I admit, three flirt options was an exaggeration. But there was a double flirt and one dark side option situation. It hurt me.
I don't mind the romances, frankly I enjoy them quite a bit, but I prefer my romance options to be 30+ and not hero-worshipping me.
