"Probably. [laughs] 'Mass Effect' had a bit of this weird slow news day hiccup where people reacted. We always do romances, and we've always done romances. It's a commitment we have. And to our minds -- and we're Canadians -- it's all done in good taste. These are people that are actually in love and have built up a friendship. It's hardly as salacious as it's been sold. And 'Dragon Age' does have multiple romances available. There's quite a few characters and friendships that build into the camaraderie of the battlefield."
-- Lead designer Mike Laidlaw during a "Dragon Age" demo, answering my question about whether or not we'll see love scenes as "controversial" as the ones in "Mass Effect."
