It's understandable for them to be hesitant considering the potential for knee-jerk reactions from the "Star Wars must be family friendly!" crowd and MMO jackassery in general. But I feel that things would be alot smoother if they just had same sex love interests available at launch, people with a bone to pick wouldn't be able to do anything about it and they'd have to suck it up. But now that they're publicizing things before implementing the changes they're just giving people a chance to preemptively raise hell over it. In regards to Dragon Age 2, the term I heard was "subjective sexuality" so the character is straight or gay depending on Hawke's gender. While attempts at exclusivity like that are admirable, it kind of takes something away from a gay character if it's conditional, like their sexuality isn't really a part of their identity. Notice how the Juhani in that clip was modded to be a white human. Oy.
