When it comes to the romances, maybe they will give a big romance DLC in the first exspanion. One that overhauls them and let's you take them out on dates, invite them to your apartment, receive random text and calls from them. Do some activities with them instead of just missions. I saw on the CDPR website that they have alot of jobs open and three of them were for writers just for CP. I got a little excited when I saw that!True, but I'm just trying to be optimistic going forward. I'm sure they've seen some of the criticism about the male romances by now and hopefully they care about addressing it.

Well, I hope CPDR does right by the people who romanced Kerry and River in the future. I was just thinking of ideas to show that you do have support from people who didn't romance them.Despite my feelings towards the Sun ending, V has resources to help them. There's no riding into the sunset, but V isn't bereft of means to try and save themselves. Mr. Blue Eyes implies they agreed to the job because V is willing to do anything for survival.
This is just my personal opinion but all that hopefulness in the Star ending is so on the nose to the point of being pretty ridiculous. It feels like CDPR had a very clear idea of who V is suppose to be, who they're suppose to romance and how their story should end and people who deviate from it in any way are left feeling disappointed and even bitter.
Kerry and River both have sound reasons for staying in Night City just as Judy and Panam's reasons for leaving V in the Sun ending are reasonable too. I don't want my V to be railroaded into someone he's not but I also don't want any of the LIs to be railroaded either. I don't want them to bend over backwards and act like their entire world revolves around V. I like that they don't do this.
I said this before in a different thread but I'll repeat it again. Night City isn't an eldritch horror that requires human sacrifices. None of the messed up things that happen in it are unique to NC. They are the result of a dystopian society and it's bad everywhere. Happiness is what you make of it and V can find it anywhere. One of the biggest reasons for my V to feel happy lives in Night City but the game decides for me that it's not enough and that the only way for V to achieve happiness is to run away with the nomads.
CDPR said that when it comes to expansions we should expect nothing less than The Witcher 3 got which means at least 2 paid expansions. Most people buy season passes to purchase all paid content at once. Now, imagine the only available expansions being basically the same story told in different locations. As much as I want to save V this sounds like a bad idea.
Having two completely different ways to save V, set in two different places based on the ending is unnecessary work. Merging the Devil (where V goes back to earth), the Star and the Sun endings by having short prologues based on the ending and then setting V on the same path is not only less cost effective but it would also give people what they want.
I'm sorry you didn't like the ideas, was just trying to help and look at things from a optimistic view. I truly do hope CDPR fixes the romances and finds a way to continue this story with our V.
Whether that's with Judy being a key player in helping V since she dabbled in rewriting brain synopses or if they work the 3 endings leading to one main mission in the expansion that allows us to cure our V and be with our RO in the end, and leave it open for us to continue down the road.
