Why don't people play any of the other races much? You never see a Cathar or Miraluka running around.

The only human character I have is my Smuggler, unless you count cyborgs as humans, then you can add my BH.

JC: Cathar
JK: Miraluka
SW: Sith pureblood
SI: Twi’lek
IA: Chiss

Haven’t made a trooper yet, no idea which species I’m going to use there. Probably one of the ones I haven’t used yet.

Keep in mind that only the blindfold distinguishes Miraluka from humans, so you might not notice a Miraluka if you’re not paying attention.

My SI would respond to your cheering humans with a muttered “filthy sewer rats” LOL

I play mostly humans just because they have the most options for a unique appearance during creation.

I play humans, pureblood Sith, cyborgs, Miraluka and the occasional Twi'lek, Togruta, and Chiss. Why? Because I like to be pretty. No offense, but I don't care for green or fur. Does that make me colourist? Furist? I dunno. I just like what I like.

Random thought based on your avatar:

Wonder what the game would be like if you could play a sentient Veractyl

I'd be pretty and vicious and scream like a pterodactyl. It would be fabulous.

Haha as mostly empire side my Marauder would probably respond with a light saber through the gut. Assuming your race has a gut in the same spot humans do.

Among my 8 main characters, my JK and SW are humans.
SI is Pureblood
JC is "light" Zabrak
Trooper is Mirialan
IA is Chiss
Smuggler is Rattataki
BH is "dark" Zabrak, but i'm not that convinced (i'd like new skin colours, like yellow, and a real yellow, not orange, and some new tatoos, because the only one i like is the same as Akaavi, which is distracting)

I also have a second JC and a second smuggler who are Twi'leks.
And a second BH and a second SI who are Chiss

And i really don't like Miralukas

I had a Cathar trooper, but not that fan, i like the specy, but not as PC, they look too different compared to the NPCs, especially the eyes.
I have a JC who is a Togruta too, but it's not my favourite specy as PC, i'd love to be able to play a Nautolan though
