The hero is from the poor planet that's about to be hit, and he's reluctantly working with a woman from the rich planet. That part is the same as any romance novel I've read, except with more macho posturing, and a lot more philosophical conversation about symbiosis than I'd expect to find. The love scenes, when they appear, are short and mechanical, and the point of them seems to be to make the heroine stop arguing with the hero's plan for solving the asteroid problem.

Uh-maze-ing takedown of what I like to call "dude sci-fi." It gets so much more respect than it deserves!!

Considering it, I think I'd go with Guy-Fi. :D It's not as endemic to SF as anti-genre folks like to pretend, but it definitely exists.

Couldn't mention this in my original comment due to verbosity, but complete agreement with the above person; that was indeed fabulous!:d
