OMG... I would keel over laughing if I could create a darth ithorian character.

This game took over SWG, at least at first.

The first thing they should have done - was include all races from the game it was taking over - period.

With the exception of Wookiee; all other species can speak basic or Huttese. If you're truely an Alien player, that would not bother you in the slightest and you'd get to look how you want.

I am a little put off by the lack of speed of adding new races though. They have several options and they aren't adding them at an acceptable rate - the Free-to-play update is the perfect chance to add in the new races for 500 cartel coins (the amount we get for FREE if paying subs).

Actually I think that being able to chose for your toon to speak huttese would be great. And yes - we need more species and more facial features to chose from. We REALLY need this. Or at least I do .

I was heavily disapointed when I learned that TOR won't feature Rodians as playable species. They seemed like an obvious choice to me.

Personally, I think it would be pretty awesome if they added droids as a playable "species".

But Droid as playable means no Jedi/Sith for that, and given how clunky the Humanoid droid move probably not Smuggler either, since they rely on agility for gunslinging.
Peace can be found, above all passions. Through passion, I may gain strength.
Through strength, I may gain power. Through power, I may gain victory.
But for every enemy fallen, a new foe rises.
For every chain broken, new chains bind me. Only the Force can set me free.

Hell yes we need more races, Without a doubt Nautolan should be top on the list. Kit Fisto is the man, and who doesnt wanna play a green jedi nautolan , n possibly be able to wield and fight (lightsaber battle) under water. . Theres about a million Nautolan NPCs in the game i dnt see it being hard implementing them in

The Droid Commandos from the Clone Wars were pretty agile, and IG-88 had extremely fast reflexes. And while he wasn't a Jedi or Sith, General Grievous fought with lightsabers. I know he was a cyborg, but it stands to reason a droid could also.

I would love to see the Draethos, Kaleesh, Rodians, Droids, Ithorians, Utapauns, Togruta, Kel Dor, Trandoshans, Bith, and Gand as playable races. However there are some races, in my opinion, that just shouldn't be playable. Like Jawas, Tusken Raiders, Wookies, Ewoks, Yoda's Species, or Hutts (for obvious reasons). It just wouldn't seem right. Being able to play a Yoda or a Wookie would ruin the whole atmosphere around them. Imagine hundreds of Yoda's running around, it would be awful.

The clone wars is in the future with respects to this game, period droids tend to be clunky and slow, imagine playing as C3-P0, slow and annoying. Greivous could use lightsabers but not Force powers, droids do not connect to the force, and a Jedi or Sith without the force is not much fun.

I agree more races would be fun, and I love the idea of Imperials be swarmed by hundreds of trooper "Yoda's". Out of interest what is Yoda's race called, please someone tell me?
