    Expect it to get worse now that game devs have realized online porn is conservatively a $14 billion dollar a year industry.

     

    There are a whole slew of MA rated games coming down the line that feature more and more hardcore sex, as developers try and capitalize on even a small peice of that $14 billion dollar peice of the pie.

    And the problem was again...? Slaves, slave outfits, dancers, entertainers, everday life in the Star Wars universe, just because none of the films are about this side of the Star Wars does not mean that it is wrong. Also, you dont have to buy them if you dont want to and all that common sense stuff. Talk about cash grabs when epic armor sets makes their way into the cash shop, bai.

    Watching the Conan movies , vs watching the Star Wars movies , I'd say it easily fits in the AoC setting.

    The Star Wars one ? Not so much.

     

    Except for the fact that the slave bikini outfit is one of the most iconic outfits in the whole of Star Wars and everything

    Except for the fact that scene and outfit stood out because it was THE EXCEPTION to the rule , that was the point of it it , a slave outfit , not one would choose to run around and fight in.

    Again , putting on loincloths and fighting fits in Hyboria , but in a Star Wars universe I can't remember any Jedi or Sith choosing dto do so.

    I realize most of you don't care that EA/Bioware doesn't care a whit about the actual universe and neither do you , but there's no way you can try and actually say it "fits" the setting.

    The scene you refer to again reinforces it stood out as the rare exception to the norm.

    Something what stood out in 1983 is a common thing 30 years later :)

    Besides it's really not like SWTOR is overwhelmed by bare skin bodies. it's actually pretty rare.

    Looks like Bioware hired some perverts in the art department... but hey I'm not complaining, those are some nice screenshots.

    If thats your problem then practically all of the armor in SWTOR shouldnt exist honestly. And I do care about the universe, I just dont see a problem with one of the most iconic outfits from the franchise existing in the game (the reason its iconic is irelevant).

    Would you care as much if there was stormtrooper armor (or the old-republic equivalent) in the shop - and jedi's got to wear them? Because that would be the exact same issue you seem to have. Do you want every single jedi to be wearing identical brown robes in the game? Because thats what the movies show us.

    Also you say no jedi/sith choose to wear this stuff to fight - obligatory Darth Talon mention:

    What's the deal with the axe?

    It's supposed to be a Gamorrean Axe. (The pig guards from ROTJ) The better question is what is up with that new and improved shadow?

    The bikini outfit has been in since launch, one on nar shadda and two versions on the security key vendor.  This is just a new model.

    You can already change the color with the unify color to chest option.

    Of course neither does Huttball  , so not really surprised either.

    It was more important for them to have a ball game where Jedi and Sith play than having an actual galatic war between the sides working , so I don't think there is a low that EA/Bioware won't go if they can get a dime out of it.

    So you never noticed princess Leia in the gold bikini, or the countless dancing bikini Twi'leks?

    Skimpy clothing is all over Star Wars. Hell, I don't think I've ever seen a female Twi'lek who was not in a bikini, in anything Star Wars.

    I'm surprised the Devs even let you create a female Twi'lek in SWTOR, without forcing you into a bikini outfit :D

    How many did you see running around blasting things in a bikini? How many did you see traversing large hostile environments on foot in a bikini?

    Oh, and Mission Vao said to bite her shiny blue ass.

    EA CEO John Riccitiello's on future microtransactions: "When you are six hours into playing Battlefield and you run out of ammo in your clip, and we ask you for a dollar to reload, you're really not very price sensitive at that point in time...We're not gouging, but we're charging."
