Remember Sodom indeed.

I expect that EA will turn into a pillar of salt if they do not stop their unrighteous carnal ways.

If you don't want your kid to play a game, then don't let your kid play the game. My question here however is, why is there sex in the game at all? Star Wars is (and has always been) a series for children, it's unnecessary.

I am not gay, but I'm tired of all these homophobes. I have a few gay/lesbian friends and they are great people. You can't help the fact that you are gay. (This is the case. My gay/lesbian friends can't control it.) Homophobes reject the ability for homosexuals to be happy. And that is just not fair.

That'd be the first thing EA has done right in years. Really, who the hell cares if gay Jedi want to marry each other?

The Council. Seeing as they are not allowed to marry or have any type of fulfilling relationship in the first place.

Wow, people are pretty anal about this.

But yeah shitty jokes aside, I already haven't bought an EA game for years due to other reasons, so I can keep on keepin' on.

Yes, because all hate and intolerance comes form the Bible.

You can be a homophobe without being a Christian, you know.

Just going to go ahead and say it:

Nothing was said about Christianity, but have you ever read the bible? It's pretty fucked up yo.

And the same formula goes against many different people and ideals through many different religions.

Not saying killing off religion would solve the problem entirely, but it does have a shitload of influence on people and culture throughout history.

Touche. Though I can't help but feel that if Anakin had married Chewbacca rather than Padme he never would have gone to the dark side.

Does the Jedi religion approve of gay marriage? I think we should let the Jedi church decide.

Yoda's freaky, he'd be open to let Han in. Side bit, when engaging in carnal acts with Chewbacca, always let the wookie win!

ah, EA

Even in your deaththroes do you still try to retain to life and cast the victim onto ones self

my fellow newgrounders, please listen to what I say and not the drabble of these corprate monsters

If your company was falling apart due to the FACT that you continually break apart dev groups, nickel and dime the player and drive the worker into a early grave(16 hours a day, 6 days a week. They even installed showers in the facilites) and then nominated as the WORST COMPANY IN AMERICA WORSE THAN BANK OF AMERICA

Then clearly you have some issues with your PR

and whats a better way than cast away the problems?

I mean people have been complaining that the acting is(it really is, and forced) hamfisted and could be better
and the very nature of what they write is enough to pull the "bigots" card

so please newgrounders, learn what I hark. I have delved into great beyonds for this info(and much more if you really want pics of eye witness/evidence, PM me)

I'm just going to let you people know
EA is dying
and its going to take everything with it


come back! and i will bite your knees off!

EA doesn't have to include gay content if they do not want to. If you don't like it then make your own video game company. It may be close-minded, but it is their company and they can make the games how they want.

Yeah, forcing people into choises is just bad game design. But I'm proud to be working for EA when they deal with things like this!
I have to admit I'm a liiiitle bit surprised to see that some shitheads actually gets offended from having the possibility of various relationships and being all butthurt about it.

"OMMAGAWD, THERE'S HOMMMOSIXUALS IN MAH FAVURIT GAEM DATS SUPOESD 2 B MANSCULINE LIEK OMFG N SHIT HGGGNNGHGHGN".

Where do these people come from? I'm genuinley intrigued... Somone should make a game about these narrowminded fucks. Because GAMES!!

Of course, EA could also gladly make a game where the object is to bend men over and fuck them in the butt. Freedom of expression, bro.

Except for when it came out in the 70's and had fans of all ages because of its awesome special effects.

Its not really a series that was made for children.

No it isn't, it just gives you more choices when you plan your next hate crime. Some say Vader only blew up Alderaan because the king was left-handed.

Nope. They aren't being racist, they are being speciest. They have hatred for a different species, not race :)

Good point. But, what if he ultimately doesn't care what species they are as long as they are white aliens?

More importantly, is Star Wars really the best stage for tolerace? After all, there are only two black guys in the entire universe (Lando and Mace Windu).

EA won the worst company award so they put some gay relationships in their games to get all the people to forget about their horrendous business practices. The whole damn country starts siding with EA on the gay thing and forget about how much of a shit company EA is.
