The pairings should be developed. I wouldn't mind if the person you, the main character, gets is fixed as long as there is competition. Regarding same gender pairings, I really wouldn't mind much but err... Fundamentalist Hate Mail?
I liked the romance part best in Aveyond 3 but it still wasn't the best in the world. Obviously, the main focus was never romance but in my opinion, just buying stuff is never really a huge gesture. It's the conversations that help one decide who you like the PC to marry. These could be in-mission or in your house.
Aveyond 2 had the weakest romance. I liked the story and concept. Even if they were elves and couldn't have human competition, it's not like they didn't visit an Elven village. Also, Iya fit in despite being an Elf while she was queen. SO obviously, it isn't that obvious. I really think Rye should have had a choice between Iya and Emma. That way, even the Eya pairing would have a choice.
Aveyond 1 was more of a troll pairing than anything. I'm guessing the premise was redemption but the problem here was that you're supposed to repent a long time ago. If Daemon had repented in the middle of the game (Say, when they fight Agas) and then helped them, it wouldn't have seemed weird. But now, the sequence is:
1. Go to Ahriman
2. Daemon betrays you
3. He repents
4. You win
5. You marry him
This part is weird because no one just marries someone like this. Now if it had gone like Lars had:
1. Be horrible
3. Show throughout that you've changed
4. Then Rhen goes with him and hopefully marries him
See, this would make more sense.
And that's all!
