Nope. Jawa's are hilarious as NPCs but I wouldn't want to play one.

hmm I might make a jawa if it was playable lol - thinks having jawa race jawa companion jawa flair on a Jedi consular that has jawa robes(from quest reward) as well having party/anniversary jawa toy active and the title from pvp you get from the last item.... and sand-crawler/jawa balloon pets out - hmmm maybe to much jawa? or am i missing anything for that combo XD

----
But I would honestly rather be allowed to play as a Wampa :?
come on Wampa Juggernaut running at you and then leaping at you and smashing you to dust with not just the force and a lightsaber but force and strength of their own - XD
though id settle with letting wampa companion be allowed to duel wield twin assault cannons more so if visually they could maybe act like flamethrowers to keep with the melee style of its combat :?
-walks off satisfied talking of wampas and things the game devs would only ever put in if world ran out of bacon cuz the pigs grew wings and flew away-

I love this idea. Could work for Wookies, Ewoks and many more.
It could be extended to play as your companions. Posibilities are endless.

1. The basic look can't change. Can only have armor slots for gloves, boots, belt, bracers, ear, implants, and weapons so as to not mess with the Star Wars look. They would get a combat multiplier added for the two pieces missing and possibly a customization slot like companions get.

2. Only classes available are Bounty Hunter and Smuggler

3. No romances.

4. Can't have companion conversations.

My answer is YES.
How would you fix the problem in this picture https://i.imgur.com/CayysIL.jpg ? That's an unretouched screenie from the very first time you meet Aric Jorgan in Fort Garnik. Yes, I realise it's a screenie from an excluded class, but similar things happen in other class stories.

The character is BT2 Female. Take the distance from the character's eye to the bottom edge of the picture, maybe a little less, and go that far down below the bottom edge of the picture.

That's where a Jawa character's head would be.

How do you defuse that problem without a special version of the animation script just for one species that would somehow be shoehorned into old and somewhat fragile content?

My own vote would be for the suggestion of a play-as-a-Jawa mission, probably with the Jawa's krewe. Oops. Wrong game, wrong species. Something like the Blizz KotFE recruitment alert.

Jawa Jedi please.

I don't care about Disney nor Lucas' silly bad canon. If there are ewoks, gungans, and those stupid porgs, then jawa jedi and sith are totally fine.

On an Impside character, go to Mos Ila on Tatooine. There's a mission (side? exploration?) available one of the buildings near the crew skill trainers, where you discover that there *are* Force-capable Jawas, although the Sith are too proud to admit it.

I'd be all for silly species even if they'd look generic. The pvp memes would be endless!
But I have a feeling they'd also have a fair bit of general combat animation dis-functionality as well.
If it'd be doable though, I'd suggest just a silly species skin system, that would just turn your character into another species like those stronghold decorations that make you turn into hutts and whatnot for a while.

I would not play them on a train,
I would not play them on a plane,
I would not play them here or there,
I would not play them anywhere!
I do not like Jawas and Spam,
I do not like them, Sam I Am!
