      Best way to do romance is like Skyrim in not really trying to get it to make much sense, you do a quest for them and the. You get to marry them and then you don't get to move the student you married into the archmages quarters with you.

    Baldur's Gate 3's massive success proves that if you don't put romance in your game you hate money. Given how much discussion it creates among fans it is honestly very little content and even work to do on the developer's part compared to other things.
    That being said, it's not like I personally won't play Avowed because of romance. I don't really care too much about it either way. What is going to stop me from playing Avowed is that it is set in the PoE universe, a game I couldn't finish due to how dull and boring it was despite be one of the $250 backers in the campaign.

    There's a few Final Fantasy ones but most are cringe.
    Marianne x Dimitri in FE3H is okay but since it's Fire Emblem they only have like 3 cutscenes together
    Since The Witcher is open-ended even Triss and Yen's romance paths are stilted since a lot of the cutscenes and dialog has to work for both romance and non romance paths
    Almost every one in Bioware games is bad, possible exception is Morrigan in DA because it ties into the story, but not well enough to really matter

          Stellar Blade has a huge ponytail that has clipping but for spergs that care you can go to settings and shorten it. It's still a ponytail but it's no longer down to asscheeks.

          The real reason why you see butch sidecuts in westacuck games is because the character designs are made by trannies and seething white women.

              Yeah you have to mod them in. Cyberpunk 2077 is a good example of just how cucked the westerners are. The only long hair option is actually a male balding style one lol

              I also don't give a frick about clipping. I grew up on Japanese PS2 games like Dead or Alive and Devil May Cry - Where the hairs and coats were clipping all over the place but I didn't give a shit since it looked cool.

              Even back in 2014 people modded Skyrim capes and hairs and gave them special physics where they would bounce around the character models instead of clipping through it. And these were modders using shitty slapped together external tools, adding onto one another's work without even collaborating or being in the same country.

              No, the reason we see short hairs on women in western vidya is the same reason why we see ugly faces on women in western vidya. It is what it is.

    Isnt there? I mean, I wouldnt be surprised, worldbuilding has always been Obisdian's strong suit especially if Sawyer is involved, but given how BG3 is just repeat of Mass Effect: IE, they say there is romance and sex in this 3D game and watch people buy it drove. I wouldnt suspect Phil Spencer is currently trying to axe his way through their stuido entrance and demand they make some masturbatory content that fellates the player to an absurd degree. And no, they can't get more development time to do it.

      Sawyer is not involved and world building for PoE is insipid and boring when he worked on it anyway.

    Frick romance, who cares about some side shit when they need the core gameplay to be good.
