That isn't the only difference, and you know it. War and conflict are central themes in video games, romance is somewhere on the periphery.

But I'm not talking about a porno game or something where sex is the main focus. I mean something like Mass Effect that has some scenes of love making. It looks pretty silly to see two people supposedly having sex while being fully clothed during and after the sequence.

In many instances mods are the solution to your problem. I agree with your position on Mass Effect, it was a stupid/silly compromise. As an aside, a good chunk of the story driven games I've played are based on a teenage protagonist; I just don't care to see a deeper, more graphic, sexual experience in there.
