              Wait a second that doesn't actually work. Because the Bayo that is in a straight relationship in 3 isn't the Bayo that's playable in that game, it has multiple Bayos from different timelines. So no she's not the protagonist. And in 1-2 she has no romance

                Why do you have to self-insert as anyone at all? Do you watch movies and have to live vicariously through one of the cast? Do you have to self-insert yourself into chess pieces when you play chess?

                You PLAY a game, you EXPERIENCE the relationship of characters who aren't you. You the player are never the one shooting the gun or swinging the sword, ever, so you should not ever feel weird about the protagonist being in any type of relationship whatsoever. The only exception is if there's a first-person sex scene from the female POV and I don't think that's ever been done in a non-H-game.

          I disagree with you, but the only purely romantic movie I went out of my way to see was Roman Holiday (would watch again, really good movie) and that doesn't have a female protagonist, and the only one I was interested in seeing was Blue and that's because it's full of lesbian scenes. Other than that, the closest things to romance movies I've seen are Cinema Paradiso and Cold Mountain and I would not count either of those.

          I don't think that romance is something men dislike, I just think it's not something that's ever really written for them. I was a sucker for a couple of those josei mangas though. The female mangakas are much better at it than the males.

    Depends. Either theyre trying to depict them as too strong to need or want a husband or theyre trying to make them avoid any love interest because men tend to lose interest in female characters when they show affection or desire to someone.

        Why? Is one wife not enough for you? Most successful societies have been monogamous. Love is purer when it's one for one. I'm starting to get the sense self-insert gays don't care about society and the rest of the world. Wretched self-centred hedonists.

        To keep it ambiguous. If they give a canonical male romantic interest, the transbian crowd will stops buying the game.
        Personally for me, I prefer a straight female protagonist with established male partner instead of another LGBT dyke garbage. Though, I don't really play femprotag games in the first place, so I don't really care.

    Firstly because writing a convincing romance is hard. At most you get five seconds or less of the relationship before the wife dies so the man can be angry and broody. So if they have romances and the chops to pull it off it comes down to market trends. See Call of the Sea, its probably my favorite relationship in any game. And bonus, Shovel Knight.

    Romance from the perspective of a woman is generally tacky and weird, something that most men can't relate to and most gamers are men. It works better if the main character is a man so he isnt a side or supporting character like if the MC was a woman.

        extremely heterosexual post, OP is a homosexual confirmed, and probably sucks

        Romance from the perspective of a woman is generally tacky and weird, something that most men can't relate to and most gamers are men. It works better if the main character is a man so he isnt a side or supporting character like if the MC was a woman.
