George refuses to allow anyone to name it. It's supposed to be a mystery. George doesn't allow any company to allow anyone to play a Yoda race.

And the only time Yoda has been playable was in Soul Calibur. He was ungrabbable, and pretty much pwned everyone.
Shivalka: Darth Baras is quite large, isn't he?

Yoda's race is meant to be a mystery, and as such very few members of his species are ever encountered in Star Wars properties: we've got Yoda and Yaddle in the Saga (Yaddle's the female of his species on the Jedi Council in Episode I), Master Vandar Tokare in the KOTOR franchise, Master Oteg in TOR, and Minch, a Jedi Knight who was probably a contemporary of Yoda who tracked a Bpfasshi Dark Jedi Master to Dagobah and killed him (creating the dark side cave below the tree, basically, tho I think Zahn said Yoda did that himself in the Thrawn Trilogy).

Minch's story was potentially non-canon, as it was intended--I think--to be a story about Yoda as a young Jedi Knight; "Minch" was Yoda's given name in the early story treatment for Episode V, and in some other early drafts. Lucasfilm's since said that Minch isn't Yoda, nor is it part of his name; it's just a Jedi Knight of the same species around the same time, and the character's now canon since he was mentioned in another source beyond Star Wars Tales.

And no, Yoda's species aren't "the Whills" from the ol' "Journal of the Whills" thing.

They are Whills from the planet Grentarik, of course.

I kid. Nobody knows! :P

Did you read what he said? They don't allow people to play as Yoda's species, nor allow them to expand on them or create canon.

Vandar and Yaddle were not played as, nor did they bring anything radical to the story of SW about their species.
Its all the force's fault.

Corso is my sidekick..or more specifically that little monkey you dress up in a tux and sit in a corner to look interesting but in reality doesn't really do anything.
