I'd like to see the races currently within the game playable, though I would like to see some non droid novelty pets for example hoojibs or ysalamir.

I'd actually like to see Ysalamir and more especially their racial ability..... it is quite a nice one that could really put an annoyance factor into those force using classes. Or even to just have one as a novelty pet.
For anyone who doesn't who Ysalamir are a lizard like race which has the natural and constant ability to negate any force ability which is used within ten meters of them.

Hoojibs on the other hand are telepathic rabbit like creatures who have a tendency to feed on energy.

Why Bioware decided to not make Wookies playable I have no idea.

Considering an Ysalamiri can completely push the Force away within a 10 meter radius bubble, you'd basically render Jedi Knights, Sith Warriors and Shadows/Assassins useless because they can only operate from within that radius. And you can't particularly say that all of those are overwhelmingly OP to the point that you need to strip them of ~all~ their powers.

Ysalamiri are not a species...they're animals.

Hoojibs? Ewoks? Are you people serious?

Ewoks haven't been discovered yet. Not gonna happen.
Hoojibs are little more than rabbits. Haven't been discovered yet. Not gonna happen.

Try to be constructive, folks.

The most viable species are the following:
  • Cathar
  • Togruta
  • Nautolans
  • Chagrians
  • Devaronians
  • Arkanians (no in-game models)
  • Bothans (no in-game models)
  • Vultans (no in-game models)


Because they meet BioWare's criteria. They can all speak Basic. They all have human-like facial expressions. And they're all romanceable.

*I would include Iktotchi in this list, but I don't believe they've been discovered in this era.

We all want new playable races. Specifically, we all want Bothans.

If I had to pick only one species to make a new playable race, I'd choose Zeltros in a heartbeat. We saw them in KOTOR, we know they're around in this time period. Let's have 'em, BioWare!

My guess is that, they will implement races like Nautolans and Togruta, when they figure out how to fix the issues with twi-lek hoods/helmets I personally can't wait for that.

EDIT: I also think they will never include a race that can't use the already implemented voices for classes, because the work would be far too much to add more, basic speaking races only, will be my guess, sucks, but it sounds most likely.

Edit: Before anyone says anything, they were around long before WoW and the worrgans, and they were around long before Twilight. In 1977.

I'm up for just about anything, but what I really want to see added are Cathar.

I would delete my main character and remake him if they were added to the game.
