I was just wondering what ROMANCE is your favorite? Is it Tali because of her cute babbling, is it Garrus and his CALABRATIONS, or is it Thane and his tragic death in me3? Mine is Garrus and his CALABRATIONS!!!😍😂 You don't have to pick these three but which one do you enjoy most?
The only thing I don't like about Liara as a romance is that it seems like they try and force it on you. Other than that I feel like they have a true romance. Or rather a movie romance genre type romance.
I have played through twice now and did Garrus both times. If you have the Citadel DLC, definitely do the slow party at least once if you have Garrus as a LI and Zaeed is still around. He and Zaeed cracked me up. Doing a third run through for Kaiden but he seems kinda whiny. When he said "I understand why you cheated" to my previous femshep who had romanced him in 1 and then went with Garrus after, I was like 'wait...whut?' As I recall - he dumped HER. I've seen videos of the Thane romance. Very well done. Garrus is my fav tho.
Jacobs an a...... yes mam, no mam, wanna sixpack..... gotta go... sorry mam... and the dialog options always seemed way outta place for me.... even more forced then Liara... "I just want to taaaaalllk for a bitttt".... (and s... on the icecubes in the meantime)... odd you see?
It is sad, that 2 of the female romances never really go on in ME3, while all romances of a MaleShep can.
@ xman and Illidan..... you want me to call Yvonne Strahovski for you to come over and decide who is best?
Miranda is the most ... feelable romance character, due to the simple fact that both, voice and face come from the same real life actress. This is unique in the game.
Jack is very good in ME2, you bring her back to life in a way, and the few scenes in ME3 are great too.
Thane is something for the heart and your spirituality.... you always knew it was not for long, but the way it is concluded in ME3 and the Citadel DLC Vids.... are really touching.
Of course Liara is always kind of forced to be liked by the player.... but think of it the way Asari mate...... no other romance can ever be that deep and fullfilling than with her, putting Character development aside.
Tali is by far the cutest and Garrus really cool, because you have them in all three games and they are the closest to your friends throughout the series.
Specialist Traynor is also well made but quite humanfocused obvious too.... while both Ashley and Kaidan are unnerving.
James, or Javik are ... nevermind. And Kelly... wooww... she CAN DANCE and feed fish.
Liara will always be my first choice, directly followed by Tali, Garrus, Miranda and Jack and Thane. Traynor, Samara and Kelly share third place.
Nice breakdown. I pretty much agree with the points you made. I never romanced a male, just wasn't something I was use too haha. I'm doing my first female shep and I picked Liara. So I'ma get that great mental link only she can give.
As sidenote.... you can have all possible romances and romance scenes for your gender in the same playthrough... well except Jack.....with her it's either the quick or the intense scene, as the are excluding each other.
Lock into a romance and talk to the other candidates up to the challenge point, making them say 'I like you, but you have to break up you current relationship'. Your locked in will come to you as planned on the way to the omega relay.....
After the suicide mission you can simply break that one up and go to the next challenger and lock this one in. Immediately afterwards, the particular pre Omega Relay Romance scene will play.
You can experience all Romances this way, but remember, your last locked in Romance will be transfered to ME3 and once you break up.... they won't take you back. But except Jack, none is angry at you.
Mine is Garris and his Callibrations
I haven't done all the romances, but of the ones I have, I'm a sucker for Kaidan, Garrus and Traynor. I liked the Liara romance too, and I also appreciate that if you don't want to romance her, you can let her down without being too harsh. It's always annoyed me a bit in my ME1 playthroughs where I DON'T want to romance Kaidan, that it seems impossible to be nice to him without him taking it as flirting. So I have to shut him down at some point, and whichever dialogue options I choose, I always end up feeling mean, and like I've led him on, which I haven't. Ugh.
I didn't like the Ash romance much, it never felt natural to me. Jacob's a tad dull I suppose, but I actually quite liked that about him. He's nice and predictable in a world gone mad.
So I guess my favourites would be: Kaidan and Garrus at the top, then Jacob and Traynor, then Liara. I do love how direct Liara is.
Glad I got all of you talking. Hahaha!!
What do you think?
