Maybe I can give you some alternative perspective on some things. See belowReplied to comments
Well where I come from, using someone as furniture and putting their feet up on you is a sign of disrespect not friendship, or playfulness.
I played as female V and because of how fast this scene happens from when you can meet Panam (in her continuation) I went with the playfullness followup where its played out jokingly. The mood during this scene for (as it seems) both a fem V aswell as a male V are pretty much the same, there's prospect for becoming close and comfortable with eachothers feelings, and feel secure in eachothers company. But not yet to the point where its about love. I can understand how it may seem fast, however. I also forgot to mention: Try looking at it in this way: Panam wants to signal you that she may have more interest for you (granted, some inconsistency with a fem V.)
Powering the lights and heat on the old farm my be just gameplay, but it also shows just how she treats people.
A tool to be used and manipulate. From a narrative point of view its about survival, either V or Panam coud've done it from that perspective, but becasue this is a game, you're the one to do it, so the gameplay element supersedes the narrative of the setting, not so much Panam's force and guided behavior because of that. She could just as easily have said for you to go sit on the cough and keep an eye on Saul, while she goes out there. Again, its narrative versus gameplay.
The clan would still be having problems with or without selling out to corporations.
To me they are a bunch of people who cannot deal with living in night city for whatever reasons. You have to be pretty desperate to live out in the desert the way they do.
Sorry to say but this is quite judgemental and narrowminded if I have to be honest. Many people choose not to live in the city, reason not limited to 'cant handle it' Your view on this perspective is quite shallow if you see it in blacks/whites like that. Becasue for the same reason you could also ask right now in real life why some people live in a ranch miles away from a big city, or why we have small villages and bigger towns and cities. People, even in CP77 simply still are different all between them and so are their ways of life. Nomads choose to be (ideally) self sufficient out of the corpo's reach, all except the Aldecaldos however have sold out to corpo's in the end, and so the Aldecaldos' world shrinks rapidly by the enclosing enemy forces of corpo's and Nomad raiders.
Panam is not the same as V. Panam does not have someone living in her head trying to take her over, and the possibility of dying. V's actions are because of desperation. Unlike Panam who just wants to get her way, or she'll throw another temper tantrum.
Just a quick question for you here: What do you hink happens if the Aldecaldos are completely assimilated or exterminated by corpo's or other nomads allied to corpo's. Panam has become a loner like V, with exception of not yet having left her clan, nor does the clan want to expell her. So she and the clan are still linked and thus dependend on each other. If Panam does something stupid to enemies, the clan will feel that wrath, same as when the Aldecaldos do so, Panam will suffer equally becasue she also still is one. So her desperate nature comes in the form that she sees the Aldecaldos, her family, slowly being choked by the world around them. While its not as imminent as V, the end result would be the same: being 'deleted'.
Also, for as much as youthink Panam act in her own interest: she agrees to aid you in assaulting Arasaka tower becasue you are also family by that point. And a Nomad rule is that family comes first, so she (and all other Aldecaldos) jump in specifically for you.

I was wondering this also to be frankAnybody tries to put there feet on me, regardless of intent, that isn't in one and only one category and thats significant other will be finding themselves dusting there arse of the floor
It's a video game though an the options there to go "OI NOOO FEET, MOVE EM' so no big deal
If you have a problem with Panam and apparently not thinking of consequences or only of herself then you must have a problem with Judy's super idiotic, revengefull, not thinking shit stained plan to take over clouds then eh?? Or just her character in general especially if your just no picking dialogue options to get in her pants
