The Sims, Fable, and numerous other games already allow same-sex lovin', to include Bethesda Softworks' previous Fallout installments. I know that this particular gayming geek is more likely to purchase a game that lets me get it on with a hot elvish sorcerer, so smart marketing on their part.
Not every geek franchise has learned the lesson on same-sex relationships, however, as the upcoming Lucas Arts game Star Wars: The Old Republic is totally banning gay nuptials, while opposite-sex relationships are available to players. They have promised explanations, but thus far have released nothing.
In a video interview posted on YouTube by KAEmpire, Star Wars: The Old Republic developer Corey Butler says (at ~2.30 into the video) that the game will not feature same sex relationships. The Bioware forums are afire with a fifty-one page discussion of the issue and a community poll.That forum actually became closed due to the outrage from prospective buyers of the game.
Come on! I know Senator Amidala would TOTALLY have refused to defend DOMA! This is clearly a confusion tactic on the part of Chancellor Palpatine in an effort to smokescreen his true agenda. I call for a vote of no-confidence.
