what i mean is WHY do they have so much power? they are slow and fat, doesnt appear THAT smart, no notable usage of the force (that we have seen in the films atleast), and those tiny arms arent able to wield any weapons really.
Infact, i read about the hutts "Ceremonial armors" some place, because; Hutts can actually fight. They can even move pretty fast on their bellies, but the armor makes them hover. Hutts just don't do their own dirty work. they're too rich to do that.
