Therefore, as a result, if they don't do something different, I just won't enjoy the game as much. I will simply choose to never romance any character in the game. You can agree or disagree all you want, but that is just how it is. I don't like the current sex crap they've developed. Will I kick and scream if they don't change it? Nope. I'll just not enjoy that part. Thus, in my opinion, the game won't ever be AS good as it could be if they didn't just treat sex for ALL characters like some pointless, forced moment in the game.

It also, frankly, makes me not like any of the origin characters as much. They just seem more shallow and, well, easy. Again, to me, romancing Jaheira was rewarding because she was hard to get. She was not just, "Oh Gorion's Ward. I lost my husband. Do me." It took time and effort.

These characters are ALL like, "Ah yes. We beat some goblins and are now drunk. Let's do it." Bah. No thank you. None of you care one twit about my MC. You just wanna have sex with anybody. Get lost!

The current culmination at the party is just an intimate taste - not necessarily a whole summary and representation of what "romancing" them will be like. We're getting intimate with who they are now, not who they grow to be in Act 2 or in Act 3. I found some of the scenes actually have smidgens of actual romantic dialogue and elements in their scenes. A few of them confide in you during these scenes and Wyll and Gale in particular express some longing for more. Headcanoning any of them as drunk only makes sense if the player character just made the bare minimum of unlocking the scene.

I also wonder if you are getting to these romance scenes without having gotten many of the companion's camp scenes prior. It is possible to get the approval needed to unlock these scenes even though you've camped like twice and haven't seen a single scene of the character you choose.
