Playing Mass Effect 2 at the moment. It’s impossible to have same sex relationship because the devs wanted a “PG-13 action movie” feel. Other relationships are fine. Jokes about “not taking a shower” on the prison planet are seemingly OK too. I am disappoint.
So far, ME2 is just mostly disappointing though. Think I read too much about it being the best in the series before I played. Just seems like more of a generic over-the-sholder shooter, compared with the depth of the first one. Not bad… just not as good.
Case in point, I didn’t stop to think or care about the lack of same-sex relationships while I played through the original Mass Effect.
