Wow. Bombarded. I don't even know where to start so I guess I'll just start here:
I understand Gith. I do. I just think Lae'zel is not the typical Gith. That said, I have even said at various points that I totally see her being as she is on Celebration Night. My entire point was missed. My idea was more of an example. I wasnt thinking Larian was going to actually take my idea and use it. The point was I would like SOME sort of more interesting romance.
One point I was trying to make is that the romances all happen all at once. Just bam. All at once. It is very out of nowhere.
EVERYONE suddenly wants to have sex on the same night out of the blue. Like I said, its like picking out groceries instead of romance. The game even asks you who you pick to sleep with that night. But I guess it shouldn't surprise me. It's very much like the Bachelor and that's a popular series. Everyone wants to sleep with the MC and he/she gets to pick.
But whatever. I don't think I care anymore.
Honestly, I agree with you that it is a bit contrived that it is all on the same night. Its why SH stands out even to those who want sexual content. It might be a product of the limited design space to show off romance right now, but they all would benefit from having different progressions. Astarion might pick a party or he might pick a particular dark and romantic night for example, the second even when keeping everything else the same, spaces his away from the others and makes it stand out with setting and timing.
By having everything happen at the same time at the same place for the same reasons, it does make it considerably less romantic, even for the ones that are meant to be more romantic, or at the very least seductive.
