Romantic arcs are integral to BioWare's game design style. This is true all the way from Baldur's Gate II to Mass Effect 3, and Star Wars: The Old Republic is no different. By giving our companions gifts and picking the appropriate dialog choices, we may gain enough affection to pursue a romance with them. This process also leads to additional quests given by the companion and a richer understanding of who that companion is. However, this romance system isnt without its controversy, especially when it is concerning the romance arcs of the Jedi Knight and the Jedi Consular.
The galaxy's historic texts recount the tales of heroes and villains as a simple conflict between good and evil. The heroes are portrayed as infallible beings unable to falter from their quest for peace and justice. However, reality sees the side of these heroes that the history books do not. It knows about Revan and his fall before saving the galaxy from the evil clutches of Darth Malak. History also knows about the similar path his companion, Bastila Shan, took during Revan's redemption. Reality is full of gray and Bastila, one of the galaxy's greatest heroes, was anything but infallible.
