Yet Another Reason that George Lucas is a Bloated Scumbag-POS

Will ‘Star Wars’ Online Video Game Ask Your Child to Engage In Same-Sex Relationships?

by John Nolte
Apparently, after selling somewhere around 500,000 copies to unsuspecting families everywhere, the creators of the video game “Star Wars: The Old Republic” have decided to add same-sex romances to the online feature.
Say goodbye to your child’s innocence.
Though Star Wars: The Old Republic has wooing, romance, and all that soppy stuff one would expect from a BioWare game, the developer had so far said that the MMORPG would only allow coupling with NPCs of the opposite sex, not same-sex pairings. Delightfully, it’s now changed its mind, announcing that same-sex romance will be added post-launch.
The revelation comes from an official statement posted on the game’s official forums(via Rock, Paper, Shotgun): 
Due to the design constraints of a fully voiced MMO [massively multiplayer online game]  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. 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. 
BioWare does seem to be revising history slightly, as its past talk of same-sex relationships in The Old Republic made no mention of any plans or desire for them. “Same-sex romances are not in Star Wars: The Old Republic,” producer Cory Butler answered curtly when asked about same-sex romances on BioWare’s own ‘BioWare Pulse‘ show at Gamescom in August, without the slightest hint that there was more to it.
With very minor edits for clarity, a BH reader sent the following email with their own personal take and opinion on the matter:
The companies involved in the game’s development are BioWare, Electronic Arts (parent company of BioWare), and George Lucas’s LucasArts. So far, $150M has been spent on the production of this online game (MMORPG). To put things in perspective, a similar game called ‘World of Warcraft’ currently has 11.5 million monthly fee subscribers, including adults and minor children. 11.5M players x $15 monthly subscription = $172.5 MILLION per month. That’s the scope of this.
Today Bioware, who is in charge of the game’s programming, announced that there will be “Same Gender Relationship Arcs” (SGRAs). In other words, players will have the ability to engage in homosexual decisions and conversations with Non-Player Characters (NPCs), known as “Companions” that are assigned to the player. For example: Han Solo and Chewie from the movies. Basically, a child can play a Han Solo-type character and your Companion, Chewie, will ask if you would like to engage in a homosexual relationship.
There is an actual option you are forced to choose about how to answer every time one of these “Companions” ask you if you’re interested in having a “gay relationship”. There has also been discussion that random NPCs will also be capable of asking players to consider engaging in a homosexual relationship.
BioWare has already sold out of their Collector’s Edition copies of the game. Approx. 500K were sold at a cost of over $100. There has yet to be a release date of when the game will go live (playable online). However, there is a large portion of customers who oppose today’s announcement because of religious and moral beliefs. Some of whom already purchased a copy of the game in advance. These people are trying to let their voices be heard and in return, BioWare has been deleting comments and even suspending accounts that have any negative opinions. Some parents are concerned that this homosexual content will attract pedophiles.
The questions have been raised repeatedly regarding Bioware’s stance in regards to pedophilia and if the game with the name “StarWars” on it will be safe to play for their children. They keep ignoring the question. There doesn’t appear to be any comment from George Lucas’s LucasArts studio at this time.
The scope of this is massive. To my knowledge, $150M has been the most ever spent to produce an online video game. It will reach millions of children world-wide. They are announcing the introduction of gay relationships after the release date which of course, by then, millions of kids will already have a copy of the game. This does not belong in a video game. It serves no purpose other than a political agenda. Parents beware! We really need your help with this. None of us have the power that the LGBT has.
Announcing the gay relationships AFTER the game has been sold is pure bait and switch.
