I don't really keep up with video games. But I am gradually working my way through the archives of Unskippable (which is two people trying to be funny over the intro to games) and so today I saw the intro to Star Wars: the old republic. The token female character is a slender, conventionally attractive humanoid. She's also a Jedi. She's less good at violence than the other (male) Jedi in the intro, but better at sensing stuff. Oh, and she needs rescuing by male characters, twice (or maybe three times, depending on what counts) in one intro.
So it's made of tropes and sexism. It would be nice if something wasn't, for once.
