BioWare has given players an insight into the creation of the the Smuggler class in the upcoming MMO, Star Wars: The Old Republic, revealing that romance will be an option.
By all accounts, the Smuggler will be a smart-talking wise-cracking charmer and, following the route open to players in the original ToR game (the in-game kiss with Jedi NPC Bastila Shan caused a stir with players at the time), it sounds like romance is an option.
“Of all the stories in our game, the Smuggler ones are specifically written with an emphasis on humor and romance. If you’re playing this class, you get to say the funniest things (usually at the least appropriate times), and are always on the lookout for people who find charming rogues irresistible. You’ll be flirting with or laughing at the most exciting personalities in the galaxy: crime lords, gamblers, Bounty Hunters, senators, nobles, spies, Jedi and even Sith.”
Although Smugglers are famously up for earning a quit buck, they won’t be found working for the Empire. And there is a nice selection of sidekicks to chose from, Han Solo didn’t go anywhere without Chewbacca after all.
