Arcona, why are they ALL salt addicts?

The Arcona we see throughout the game all seem to share one common factor that, even in light of their biology, I don't know if anyone else has noticed or, to be sure, if anyone else cares enough about to notice.

Every, single, Arcona in the the galaxy seems to be a long-term addict.

Arcona are easily addicted to salt; just as humans are to meth or crack. It's a hallucinogen, a strong one, to them. After prolonged addiction, their normally green eyes shift into a strong gold color. It's readily apparent that you're talking to a hard-core sodium-head by merely looking them in the face.

The thing is....have YOU seen any Arcona in the game that have green eyes?

If so, do tell! I'm curious to see if this is merely a generic art resource issue, purposeful or if it's merely careless oversight.

(*NOTE...this is not a complaint. Just my personal flavor of SW fangirl discourse. )

Hehe, I was explaining this to my girlfriend last night. I think it's probably due to a development oversight, (no pun intended) since they may have been working off of the single image of an Arcona in the Mos Eisley cantina in ANH, which had golden eyes.
