Matt Atwood chats to GameSpot about that lesbian love scene, the controversy surrounding the first game, and the sequels.
The game was briefly banned in Singapore and caused something of a furore due to the inclusion of the possibility of playing as a female character and having a relationship with a mono-gendered alien (who looks very much like a female).
BioWare's senior manager Matt Atwood says that this is a little unfair. He told GameSpot, "The interesting thing about Liara [the mono-gendered blue alien in question] is that in her species what they do is they join their minds and their minds become one." He said that he thought that the scenes were "really tastefully handled."
