I usually make characters that are as far away from human looking as possible. Not really fussed with the romance options (but I understand why some are). I would love an Ithorian Consular and a Mon Cal toon as well. I really hope they become available at some point in the future. If the option to change existing characters species to the new species was available - I would be even happier.
Judging by the number of posts about more diverse species selections there is obviously a demand for less human looking playable species. When will Bioware supply this demand?
I agree with you completely!
