Star Wars: The Old Republic To Have Same Sex Relationships...Eventually

BioWare have confirmed that same-sex relationships will be attainable between companions in the upcoming MMORPG Star Wars: The Old Republic...eventually.

This post over on the SWTOR forums, from community manager Stephen Reid, states that the option will eventually be available but not at launch due to "design constraints".
“Due to the design constraints of a fully voiced MMO of this scale and size, many choices had to be made as to the launch and post-launch feature set,” he said. “Same gender romances with companion characters in Star Wars: The Old Republic will be a post-launch feature.

“Because The Old Republic is an MMO, the game will live on through content expansions which allow us to include content and features that could not be included at launch, including the addition of more companion characters who will have additional romance options.”
The Old Republic is due out this winter on the PC.
