Homosexuality in Star Wars: The Old Republic is separate but unequal

It turns out that Star Wars is some dystopian nightmare for homosexuals.

At least that’s how BioWare’s Star Wars: The Old Republic massively multiplayer online role-playing game paints it. When the developer launched the game, it provided 20 “romanceable” companion characters. Meaning, players can enter into relationships with them as they travel around the galaxy together. The problem is that the flirtatious dialogue options never appear for characters of the same sex, which completely prohibits homosexual couplings. (PC, Star Wars:The Old Republic)

If you don't like it... don't play it? That or make your own. Just a thought.

Oh, crap! Wait! Does this mean that there can be no girl+girl pairings? DAMN IT!

I'm picturing a vocal, anti-gay, alien community that's keeping other planets from legalizing gay rights:
"It's Mak'bleh and Arb'glell, not Mak'bleh and ARD'glell!"

So they can be gay, but the game doesn't allow them to DO anything gay?
