No-romance playthrough? (spoilers)

#1LordTrinenPosted 7/24/2013 6:58:08 PM
Has anyone ever played through the entire trilogy without Shepard getting romantically involved with anyone? I've played through ME1 and 2 without a romance but always went with someone in ME3. I think a good romance rounds out a story and it seems kind of sad for Shepard to reach the end alone.

I suppose a no-romance playthrough would make the Control and Synthesis endings a little better because Shepard isn't leaving a close loved one behind. Has anyone tried this?

I tried.

But the game made me believe I had somehow romanced Liara.

It's annoying trying it. Every single character will try to flirt with you, they seem to see these signals that don't exist. Some of them try it more than once across the games (I'm looking at you Liara!).

I did it once.

Would have been so much easier if I could have nuke that asari ***** Liara though.

What's really odd is the fact that at the end of the game, it was Traynor who put Shepard's name on the wall. Not only did I not talk to her through the entire game, But I was also playing as a maleshep.

You get no renegade points for turning down potential love interests. Stop trolling.

You spend too much time on the Mass Effect board differientating your opinions to mine. Glad I can give you something to do.

How was I being a "Troll?" I stated my opinion and you corrected me. I simply did not know. I retaliated with "earth-clan" humor joke to ease the convo, but you have a stick up your ass and like to annoy. Yet I'm the troll?
