Shacknews has published an Xbox 360 hands-on of BioWare’s Dragon Age: Origins and revealed that the RPG features a sex mini-game that is so bad it’s “painful to watch.”

But in creating what is essentially a sex minigame within Dragon Age, BioWare is fully entering territory that I’m not sure it can pull off. Sex in games is still in the pubescent stage.
