Glenn: As far as "Samus is unattainable" goes, I disagree.
Look at the woman's lifestyle. She's in a dangerous line of work that involves near-constant travel and putting her life on the line on a daily basis, to say nothing of how she's alone most of the time.
I'd imagine what happens is whenever she's in port, she'll look around to see who catches her interest, drop into their life with all the subtlety of a hand grenade in a wishing well, turn everything upside-down, and then leave in the dim light of early morning without so much as waiting for whoever she'd spent the night with to say goodbye.
She has to leave before they wake up.
When they're awake when she tries to leave, they beg her not to go. She tries not to show it, but it breaks her heart when they do that. Part of her wants to stay...
But she can't stop. She's got to do what she's good at. She can't leave the bounty hunting behind, and even if she tried... Some day, it would find her.
The last time she got attached to someone, it was a baby metroid that had imprinted on her as its mother. She held it in her arms as it died. She died a little too.
She can't let anyone else close. She couldn't bear to lose someone again.
It'll be the best night of your life... Just, for your own good, don't fall in love with her.
