So any races we add in the future will need to plausibly be able to speak basic.
Reluctantly, I have to agree. It's nice to have for flavor every now and then, but when I talk to too many alien language NPCs in a short time period, I have to spacebar through it. Maybe if they made it as complex and natural as an actual language it wouldn't be as bad, but you start to realize that you're hearing a lot of the same words over and over. And don't get me started on talking to Bowdaar. I actually freaked out some of the people in my house with that.
