I was just talking with a friend about the state of romance options in DA II. Three are confirmed so far: Isabela, Fenris, and Merrill. They could stop there and it would be the same romance setup as Mass Effect: heterosexual male and female+bisexual female. OR they could throw in another male and make it the same setup as Origins. That male could either be Varric or Anders, both of whom have huge fandom followings at this point. So...probably no Aveline romance. I was hoping for it too.
