Honestly, in 99% of these game with the romance subplots it seems a bit childish to be chasing tail when the stakes are often so great. The only games I've played where they really make sense to include have been skyrim or fable which continue on after (insert big bad giant event here) or KOTR where the romance became an integral part of the game plot rather than a sideshow. I mean if you think about it, Han Solo didn't even really hook up with Leia until after they blew up the second death star.
This brings me to my next point, WTF evil empire? You're telling me you can fit a power source onto your space station large enough to power a gianormous death-ray that can obliterate a planet, but you need to put your shield generator on a moon? I thought the death star was as big as a moon? What, did they run out of real estate up there, or is your superweapon simply powered by Ewok tears? Oh, dish projection you say? So let me get this straight, you have the ingenuity to build this super-awesome gun but you can't figure that maybe putting an elaborate grid of towers with a shield dish on them which emits a shielding source onto your I don't know how expensive space station might be a good idea? Well at the very least you have one inside the core chamber protecting the core, right? No??? I have no words, your superweapon architects are terrible. Either that or you use the same physics that Kirk did to come to the conclusion that ejecting warp cores in front of a black hole was a great idea.
And don't even get me started with the whole "Miraculously saved by Rocs" thing at the end of Lord of the Rings.
