Romance in Starfield isn’t mandatory, but it does add a little depth and intimacy to the space adventure. The game gives you only four romantic options to choose from which may feel restrictive to some, but it does keep things simple. As you progress with each relationship, you can even keep an eye on what level you have reached so you know how far you have to go before you reach the Commitment stage.
The four options for romance are decent ones too, with each character offering something a bit different. They all have their own backstories, perks, and personalities to get to know as you interact with them, and reward anyone who takes the time to see what lies beneath the surface. With that said though, we think that some are better than others when deciding who you want by your side as you explore the galaxy, and we’ve ranked every Starfield Romance option from worst to best.
