    They're not in a cash shop.

    did you see the first three star wars movies?

    does the name "leia organa" ring any bells?

     

    if not, watch star wars.

    if, well, that's why ^^

     

     

     

     

    the story behind is is actually that the star wars universe is full of slaves.

    and sexy slaves are dressed sexy, usualy been done like that since rome :)

     

     

    so, for real, what are you guys complaining about? that your version of star wars was censored? :)

     

    ps: uh, wait, forgot where i write this. and the reason why jedis and sith are "allowed" to wear the items worn in star wars is simply for RP reasons.

    or most of you guys would go like "why cant i wear this and that which they had in the movies mimi"

    I always thought the game should add skirts. How they have it was either robes or pants, seemed a little off to me. thinking panties may be going abit far though.

    Because i can.

    Did you? Leia wore the bikini as a slave for a short time in the beginning of Return of the Jedi. So a couple scenes in one movie makes it iconic for everyone and their sister to run everywhere in a bikini?

    Last I checked, there is no "slave class" when you choose your character.

    Maybe they should make one. Then, everyone who wants to wear a bikini can make a slave and stand around all day chained to a pole while a dancing script does all of their playing for them.

    As Tiefighter said, it's the Gamorrean Axe.  I'll add that it's also available in the cash shop, I believe it only comes from the most expensive gambling Pack, the one that is $4 a pop.  It has a low loot rate.

     

    I suppose it's an item of envy .. everyone else only has lightsabers .. but the wielder has a primitive axe ...

    If EA was going to add crazy items, I'd rather see a lightsaber with a rainbow crystal...

    I never saw Leia running around in a small bikini interacting with Vader or other characters .. or seeing her in full upper garb but only wearing a see through bottom g-string, while holding a smoking blaster in her outstretched arms ..

    Not that there is anything wrong with that .. but Star Wars wouldn't be much of a family movie then, and, I think Star Wars would have taken to a different crowd  .. and SWTOR probably would have never existed to even talk about it now anyways :-P

    Makes for good video games though .. best not to relate it to the movies.  SWTOR makes little sense to the movies anyways .. common folk using the force, even though they never spent a day in training? oh yeah legacy!

    Yea it just seemed out of place until Tiefighter mentioned the Gamorrean.  I'm not complaining, was just curious why a SWTOR character was holding an axe.  Seems odd for some reason.

    What better way to really devastate your enemies than to create a rainbow with every swing? :-)  An item of pride and humiliation to your enemies at the same time!

    I couldn't care less if they objecfiy women, just as long as I can get a similar outfit for my male character, which exposes a nice amount of man flesh and abs. I was highly dissappointed to see no such item for a male character on the list, which is a shame considering the amount of straight female and gay male players who play the game, who may want to buy such an item. Get with the times, Bioware. If you're going to objectify one gender, at least objectify the other in similar ways; or none at all.

    Lots of posts still on forum requesting SSR. One day BioWare will cave in and add it. There were speculations that Lucas did not agree to it (we all know BioWare is not shy about it). The question is if it was the truth and if it was, if changing from Lucas to Disney will change it.

    George Lucas Gives to No on 8 Effort, Notables Follow Suit

    October 24, 2008


    http://sfist.com/2008/10/24/george_lucas.php

     

    Sympathetic with the plight Jabba's gay uncle, Ziro the Hutt, as well as countless same-sex couples throughout California, Marin County resident and filmmaker George Lucas, plunked down a cool $50,000 to the No on 8 effort. But wait, there's more! Lucasfilm, George's company perched in the Presidio, donated an additional $50,000 to boot.

     

    Maybe PR .. and $100k is chump change .. but I guess if Lucas didn't believe in something, he wouldn't give anything.

     

    If you have links that show Lucas didn't agree with SGRA's, please share!

    I don't have it, just speculations from SWTOR forum, why BioWare did not implemented in in SWTOR while they did in ME. I guess it's a good thing that it was not lincence. At least it looks like..

    SWG entertainer class had similar outfits and I don't recall much complaining about it then.

    SWG also had fairy wings, zombies, and Life Day, among other ridiculous crap. You know, all that ridiculous crap EAware originally said would never be part of SWToR. Of course, that was back when they were under the misconception SWToR would be a moneymaker.

    Of course, SWG added all that crap after they'd already given up on SWG and were just trying to make a buck however they could. So maybe it makes sense here as well.

    It's not about "caving", this is a Bioware game, and if you've played previous Bioware games, they've features SGRA's [Jade Empire, KOTOR, Dragon Age, Mass Effect]. So it's only natural when people play these previous games, that many come to expect similar themes in SWTOR. The company dared to be different, set a progressive stance and stuck with it in their previous games. That's the problem, really. To make matters worse, Bioware stated "Same Gender Romance Arcs" would be added "SHORTLY" after launch. Its been nearly a year, so I can hardly blame people for being dissappointed with the company.  If it was reversed. and OGRA's were cut, many would be annoyed too. Especially since these were naturally, also in Bioware games.

    And about Disney, well.. Disney's gotten a lot more proggressive over the years. They have equal employee spousal benefits for same sex couples, along with allowing allowing same sex weddings in their parks. There's also "Gay Day" in Disney World, which is one of the largest pride parades held in the world. I think there's a good chance Disney's probably not going to get involved.

    There is a much more serious issue at hand here.

     

    This being the buttocks that look like they crush rock for a living and the unmentionable area that looks like a carpenters chisel!

     

    I'll be honest here - SWTOR is the only game where I played a male as the female models were downright offensive. Sarcasm begin Somehow this didnt affect my sexuality! /Sarcasm end.

    I think the difference is all those other games were singleplayer. You never had to see a bunch of "gay" characters running around or kissing in cutscenes unless you wanted to play that way. In an online game, it's hard to have that content without offending those who don't want to see it/have it around them.

    Me personally, I don't care. I'm just explaining a probable reason.

    Thanks for this post. That's clarifying a lot. My use of cave in word was not the best :). I meant it as they would make it priority 1 or 2 instead of end of their list.

    I hope they would add this option after F2P will go live, I have level 4 male sith warrior who would love to have some good talk with Quinn LOL.

    Lots of posts still on forum requesting SSR. One day BioWare will cave in and add it. There were speculations that Lucas did not agree to it (we all know BioWare is not shy about it). The question is if it was the truth and if it was, if changing from Lucas to Disney will change it.

    It's not about "caving", this is a Bioware game, and if you've played previous Bioware games, they've features SGRA's [Jade Empire, KOTOR, Dragon Age, Mass Effect]. So it's only natural when people play these previous games, that many come to expect similar themes in SWTOR. The company dared to be different, set a progressive stance and stuck with it in their previous games. That's the problem, really. To make matters worse, Bioware stated "Same Gender Romance Arcs" would be added "SHORTLY" after launch. Its been nearly a year, so I can hardly blame people for being dissappointed with the company.  If it was reversed. and OGRA's were cut, many would be annoyed too. Especially since these were naturally, also in Bioware games.

    And about Disney, well.. Disney's gotten a lot more proggressive over the years. They have equal employee spousal benefits for same sex couples, along with allowing allowing same sex weddings in their parks. There's also "Gay Day" in Disney World, which is one of the largest pride parades held in the world. I think there's a good chance Disney's probably not going to get involved.

    I think the difference is all those other games were singleplayer. You never had to see a bunch of "gay" characters running around or kissing in cutscenes unless you wanted to play that way. In an online game, it's hard to have that content without offending those who don't want to see it/have it around them.

    Me personally, I don't care. I'm just explaining a probable reason.

    Yeah, there are as many "I quit" if you add it posts on SWTOR forum as "I quit" if you don't add it. The only option that would satisfy all would be a toggle "on" or "off" option in UI.

     I know they want to make money but is this the way to go about it? STO has Orion Slave girls and didn’t go this far. I appreciate a fine female figure and all but, come on man! Where is the line? It's a Star Wars RPG game not a sex on the beach simulation. Here is a screen shot of one pair you can get:  Is this the best they can come up with to cash in rather than actual new content to buy? I am not a prude but are they going too far to make a dime too easy by cashing in on our worst instincts? There are super hero games with a better dress code man... I like sexy women but I also admire intelligence class and all that too which work together to make a female hero. What happened to the story? Just sell T&A now? Just LOL. I wonder if it'll work? Are we game players that easy to milk for a few dollars? Or do "we" have any class? LOL. I never thought I'd be posting this... O.o (Edited to fight the typo monster that follows me around.)


    They're not making any buy them or wear them. It's a pointless argument in regards to role playing. What the problem is?

    It's not really a BioWare game, as anyone would expect.  BioWare sold their company to EA in 2007.  The Doctors who created these games left (presumably after their 5 year post-sale obligation expired).  Upon sale, nobodies heart or soul was in the game.  It's all EA.  And EA says alot of things for every game in their portfolio to keep profits high.

     

    I admire your passion though.
