I mean, it is a good question, but kinda like asking 'how could humans have conquered the earth?" when you've only seen humans at Walmart.

The problem I find with hutts having power is that they are not particularly charasmatic and are totally self serving and too greedy.

Look at despots throughout history in real life. In order to maintain power you HAD to satisfy the military. You can't just rule with fear and money. If you don't satisfy your military they will turn on you. It happened with the roman emperors, it happened to modern day despots. There is no avoiding this.

Seeing as hutts are greedy and indulgent I find it hard to beileve they satisfy anyone but themselves. I have also never seen hutt foot soldiers so they apparently always seem to be terrible un-charasmatic leaders with no visions.

It's hard to imagine they command so much power and respect given these circumstances.

Hutts don't have feet.

Show some respect.
