More romance in BioWare games or less? Writer discusses

BioWare adventures are known for their romances. It's one of the first thing players talk about with their friends; "Who did you go for?"

Dragon Age writer David Gaider isn't too keen on them. He discussed the topic at length on his blog. (David Gaider, Dragon Age 2, Dragon Age: Origins, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

The good idea: extraeneous dialog trees to give insight into characters, amusing lines, further characterization, etc.

The bad idea: EVERYBODY HAS SEX! AT THE DROP OF A HAT!

...

I think the problem lies simply in thinking of these relationship mechanics as "romances." I think things would be better--and these relationships would be implemented better--if the default was "friendship."

You know, so we could talk to NPC party members without them suddenly thinking we want to bump uglies. If romance is present in a (W)RPG, it should ONLY exist--in any capacity--if the player initiates it.

That, I think, would solve all or most of the issues people have.
