Well it is strange that all the character are bisexual. In previous Baldurs gate game, all the character leaned toward one or the other gender , not both. I v already said this, but making everyone pansexual, everyone ready to fuck you at the camp party is totally unrealistic and kill a part of their identity. Its makes all the character the same, and make dialogue irrelevant.
Lae'zel : see me as a monster, wants to kill me Gayle : Likes me Will : neutral Shadowhearth : Hate me, tell me to stop talking to her whenever she can. Astarion : Charming and secretive, still tried to kill me and bite me.
Guess what? They all want to have sex with you at the camp party. Doesn't matter if you're a boy or a girl, doesn't matter if you got along with them or if they disapproved every single reaction beforehand. Everyone is open bar, free to get taken.
I enjoyed the long dialogues with Baldurs gate2 companions, and the fact that you had to give the good answers AND be the good gender AND do their quest right to have a chance to go with them. It made sense. You weren't the same person if you tried to date Viconia or if you wanted to be with Aerith.
Shadowheart shouls also absolutely deny any gith no matter what, considering her view on these "flat-noses"
^ I think race-preferences are just important as gender preferences. I'd love for us to have straight, homo, bi, and asexual companions as well as racially biased ones. Alternatively, a lot of flexibility among many of them but a higher bar if you fall outside of the companion's preferences.
