I rarely play humans.. I find them boring. Stuck with playing one IRL :P
This is a fantasy setting, so I want to play more exotic things. I have every race to at least 50 except Miraluka. (The blind aspect is too creepy for me.) Chiss are my fave, followed by pureblood then twi'lek.

A Sith twi’lek. She considers humans to be a major part of everything that’s wrong with the galaxy.

I have played every species except Togruta because I don't have them. How many of my for-keeps characters are human depends a little on if you deem Cyborg as human.

Sage: technically human but RP as Echani
Sorcerer: also technically human but RP as Echani
Sage: Cathar
Shadow: Human
Assassin: Human
Assassin: Rattataki but RP Dathomirian female
Guardian: Miraluka
Juggernaut: red Zabrak
Scoundrel: Cyborg
Operative: Chiss
Commando: Mirialan
Mercenary: Cyborg

So, technically 4 of 12 are human, but two of them are considered Echani and would change species of we had the option.

So i have 46 characters

Human (inc. Cyborg): 17
Sith: 4
Chiss: 6
Cathar: 5
Mirialan: 5
Zabrak (Both): 4
Twi'lek: 2
Togruta: 1
Miraluka: 1
Ratattaki: 1

17 Humans vs. 29 aliens. They might be most populace by single species but overall, they are almost 2x outnumbered by aliens. i still have 2 humans that aren't pinned down yet and i'm hoping for a Ratattaki or another cathar and another Twi'lek if i can free up that space, the 1 miraluka i have isn't pinned down either, i could probably put another mirialan out to complete the Estoba family tree and fill in the last piece of the puzzle for headcanon rp purposes.

Relateability. That's why.

Reasons for all the humans in the game:

1. Free-to-play only have humans, cyborgs (really humans), and zabrak to choose from
2. Until species are unlocked only humans, cyborgs, and zabraks are available for all classes
3. You have more cosmetic options for humans than for any other species

Reason for all the Sith purebloods: They are awesome
Stealthy heals, stealthy dps, stealthy tank.

I think a lot of people roll with humans because they do have the most customization options out of most other species, and Sith Pureblood's look pretty unique and especially fit the Sith. That said I have a bunch of different species, though I don't have that many alts really.

Consular - Human, and Sith Pureblood
Knight - Sith Pureblood
Trooper - Republic Zabrak

Inquisitor - Human, and Rattataki
Warrior - Rattataki, Imperial Zabrak, and Twi'lek
Bounty Hunter - Chiss

For some species (Togruta) I find it hard to make one I like, or other species I've played in the past but have deleted at some point or other.

Mostly play humans for the much better customizeability, really.
