To be clear, I don't think the limitation is because of any "believability" concerns or whatever. I think she was just talking about the process when she was deciding how to incorporate the same-sex romances (that she knew she was going to do anyway), and why they're not out of place for the time period the game is loosely based on.It does seem like an odd place to draw the line. You can play as a female who's a trained fighter, one of the characters is a black woman who's a renowned scientist but same-sex relationships need to be historically accurate? I mean, I'll reserve judgement till I've actually seen how it's all implemented (and I do think that they're acting in good faith here) but it does feel like a bit of an arbitrary limitation at the moment.
I'm not worried about the content. They handled it just fine in Technomancer (which sort of proved that they're doing it because they believe in it).
At least one of the male faces has a beard. That's all we know.
The game doesn't have extensive customization options (you pick a face, then choose hair style, eyebrows, and skin, hair, and eye colors).
