By using the esoteric research method known as “typing ‘Star Wars the Old Republic’ into Google”, I was immediately directed to the game’s website. The description of the game’s content reads as follows:
Play Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ and be the
hero of your own Star Wars™ saga in a story-driven
massively-multiplayer online game from BioWare and LucasArts.
Explore an age thousands of years before the rise of Darth Vader when war between
the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire divides the galaxy.
Choose to be a Jedi, a Sith, or from a variety of other classic Star Wars roles, and make decisions which define your personal story and determine your path down the light or dark side of the Force. Along the way you will befriend courageous companions who will fight at your side or possibly betray you based on your actions. Together, you will battle enemies in dynamic Star Wars combat and team up with other players to overcome incredible challenges.
In other words, this is a roleplaying game. Players control the actions of a created character, making decisions that affect what events that character goes experiences. Players who do not make homosexual choices will not see the homosexual content. Said homosexual content cannot be graphic, or the game would have a higher-level content advisory.
On every page of the website the game’s rating - “Teen: Blood and Gore, Mild Language, Sexual Themes, Violence” - is clearly displayed. This warning undoubtedly appears on the packaging as well.
I put it to the people here who are worried about the possible effect this game’s content might have on a 7 year old that if said child has parents who are so uninvolved, inattentive and flat-out illiterate as to allow their child to play this game, then that child is sadly facing larger problems than seeing a couple of CG characters kiss.
For people who are genuinely interested in the facts of this matter, information is readily available that will allow you to make an informed choice. An online review is available here, for example. For people who would prefer to create a moral panic over nothing, well, you’ll do that regardless of any facts presented.
