Just to be clear, I didn't want James as an LI option for myself, I just think it would have been cool of them to provide the option for people who might have wanted it.

Re: Mass Effect 3

You can sleep with James in the Citadel DLC, but I guess that just makes him a Sex Interest, not a Love Interest. Although sometimes I worry Bioware don't understand that distinction.

When I started ME3, I resented the addition of James and was a bit of an ass to him. But like everyone else, I was surprised to find myself liking the character and thought he was a good addition to the crew.

Re: Mass Effect 3

^I had the party tonight and Shep slept with him, but I was sort of annoyed he's not next to you when you all return to the Normandy docking bay after the party. You get Joker talking to you instead. Oh well, I took him along to Cerberus HQ to make up for it.

Was interesting to hear a little different party dialogue here and there for a change with no Wrex (killed him on Virmire) and no Samara (chose Morinth).

Re: Mass Effect 3

Well it is Jacob...and he *did* volunteer to go into the vent despite not having the expertise to actually complete the objective competently. To me the former is reason enough to let him croak, while the latter is just a convenient alibi.

Also...it's just a game, no?

To be fair he was going to dump her at the first opportunity without even bothering to mention it.

I think the point is that James isn't really interested. It makes LI's a bit shallow and meaningless if just about everyone will fall into bed with the protagonist with just the right combination of words. You can't cater for everyone because it's impossible. Even if you make James available someone will complain that Chakwas should be too...then someone else will want Bailey, the Elcor ambassador, Blast and before you know it, they'll be demands for a Reaper LI.

It basically reduces them to an accessory, which is pretty much what it was like to have a spouse in Skyrim. I'd much rather have well written characters thank you.

One of the things I love about DA2 is how they handled the Avaline "romance". You get several flirt options with her throughout the game and they just go right over her head. The possibility never seriously occurs to her and under no circumstances does she have romantic feelings for Hawke, not matter what you say to her. It's hilarious!
