Romance in Games

I don't like to watch romantic movies or soap operas because they're predictable and stupid. Although, I always like a little bit of romance in my RPGs. It adds more depth, interaction, story, and experience in your gameplay. Romance in Baldur's Gate II -where three elven women bicker and bite each other just to win your heart- is very amusing, and the same goes for Planescape: Torment.

What I didn't know: it's much more expensive to create a NPC whose romantically involved with the player character since there are more testing, voice overs, scripting, and writing. For that information, I thank the Escapist who released an article about romance in gaming.
