Pirates of the Burning Sea allows you to choose a romantic interest from a number of characters with no gender restrictions in an early mission. When the game first encourages you to select a character in this mission, some players do not read the relevant plot text, which can lead to players being shocked when their player-character expresses same-gender attraction later in the game as a result of this selection.
