BioWare fans: Picture your favourite Love Interest. Done that? Good! Now a question: If your favourite LI is dying from an incurable but non-communicable disease, would you still pursue a romance with him/her?

Well, if you think about it, all the characters in ME have the possibility of dying because it is such a dramatic and important time. (assuming you don't know everything about the game and haven't looked up what you have to do online) You would pursue the romance despite the fact you may survive and they wont or the other way around, just because love is worth the pain.. No matter how corny that sounds. I have applied this to real life even though the guy wasn't dying but was just moving to another country.. I met him and we already had a deadline.. I deemed him an important enough addition to my life, even for that short while, so I went for it. It is the way life goes, let alone a game..
That is very much true and I agree. And with the Citadel DLC I'm actually ok with how BioWare (finally) handled Thane's death, particularly the Shrios version. It gave me some closure. I know a lot of Thanemancers are still unsatisfied (and heck I know a lot of them still didn't want Thane dead at all) but I'm actually satisfied with what they did. Made me cry too.
I would have had no problems with him dying if he had more than 2 conversations in ME3, if the LI people got more content and most important, if my Shepard was allowed to mourn him. Not have Liara, Kaidan and pretty much everyone else try to jump into her pants before his body was even cold.
No I wouldn't. That's exactly why I didn't romance Thane. My husband almost died last year and I had no interesting in stirring those memories up. I still like Thane as a character a lot and I felt so sorry when he died in ME3. And his death not being even mentioned by anyone of the crewmates, that felt just... so wrong (and lazy on the part of Bioware)...
I have a similar opinion. For example the lack of side quests (I refuse to call those dumb fetch quests side quests) was like WFT? It's a shame, really, apart from the abysmal ending it was a good game with some memorable scenes (Tuchanka, Ranoch). If it hadn't been rushed, however, it could have been a great one. I also heard a lot of complaints that romances from ME2 was mostly reduced to nothing, which doesn't seem fair. I get it that every game (maybe except those from Blizzard) are more or less rushed, because money have to made, etc. But lately it seems that "rushed" is the new Bioware trademar - remember DA2?
Oh YES. I remember when they announced that DA2 was coming up my first thought was that it was all too soon, especially since back in the old days BioWare refused to divulge when a game is actually coming out. Their reply was usually along the lines of "The game will come out when it's done." But that was back then, pre-EA. *sighs*
Well, DA 3 will be developed longer, at least it looks like it, so we can still hope it will be a decent game. Even though it's probably going to be closer to DA2 than Origins. I don't know why, but the things I like about ME (fixed human protagonist, conversation wheel) actually bugged me in DA2. Probably because they were lazily implented. I'm still going to hope it's going to be a good game, but it's definitely not going to be a pre-order for me. I'm waiting for gamers' reviews this time!
