Here's a tip, game developers: Few things make women feel less welcome in the gaming community as unnecessary sexualisation of female characters (especially player characters).
I want to be able (but not forced) to flirt and ho through a game, it's true, but if I'm an agent of the Empire and NOT undercover as a stripper there is no reason why you should make my clothes stripperific. There's been quite a few armors that I refused to use because flaunting my stomach is NOT professional. You know. If you're an imperial agent. I'm sure it's very professional for working ladies in the Republic. But you know how THEY are...
That being said. I took a long break from Star Wars: the old republic. I got stuck on the final battle and I took great offense. But I miss Sha, and the chiss, and the frustration that I never got to seduce Chance to the Empire's side. So I have since bought another month of play and gotten past that and finished the agent's story. Ending is rather underwhelming, but the story overall is great.
