On subject, though, the races are horrid and not in the least iconic of Star Wars. Humans are humans. Fine, but they're a staple of everything. There were other much more iconic races that had far more screen time in the movies than the ones currently on offer. I don't recall ever seeing a Mirilan, Miraluki, or Rattataki in any of the movies.

The only Twi'leks that had any roles were a throw-away Jedi, a Fat senator, a freaky albino pervert, and Rancor chow. Rodians had more screen time than Twi'leks and Mon-Cals had even more screen time than that.
