DeepOne nice find. Hopefully that will ring true. And since this is a crowd sourced game I'm guessing this sentiment will get heard as its a popular notion.
To me "adult romances" is the main reason I have bought any of the modern RPG's particularly from Bioware.
But that's not to say its not an important element in any storytelling. The only author in the novel form that I think has been successful without romance was Asimov, and he didn't add romance to Foundation because he just didn't even think about it as a 20 year old geek writing sci-fi for pulp magazines in the 1930's. He would add it in his 1980's sequel and it makes it much more interesting.
Maybe video games are just too much in their infancy for this or (more likely) the companies are just too desperate and insecure for sales.
