Game makers confirm Star Wars: The Old Republic will get same-sex romance but fans will have to wait to feel the full power of the gay force

After months of speculation, makers of a Star Wars game have confirmed that a gay romance option will be included in the latest version of the role-playing hit.

The Rise of the Hutt Cartel expansion for Star Wars: The Old Republic will for the first time allow wannabe Jedis to feel the force by pursuing a gay love story.

However, the feature will initially be restricted to characters not controlled by the player.
