The more I think about it, the more I'd like Nautolans. It would take some work to program, but you could have all kinds of different "styles" with their head tentacles, much more so than you could with Togruta.

So any races we add in the future will need to plausibly be able to speak basic.
Well we know some races can learn to speak basic, you could even have it as an option to chose to speak your native tounge or basic, im sure races like wookies could speak through some kind of translator for an example. I personaly wouldnt mind talking in my native tounge if it was part of my race simply for immersion, cos at the end of the day we listen to enough aliens talking none basic and thats why subtitles were invented.

It might work the same way as playing a Dark Elf in Morrowind did; yes, you were of their race, but you were not of their culture, and you constantly gave yourself away as an outsider by not following subtle social conventions. Easy to retcon.

Eh... it might be better to let the players decide what annoys them and what doesn't. I'm sure many people wouldn't mind wookie noises at all if given the chance

I would rather be constantly tortured with ungnaught quieks than having to endure wookiee barks for a minute

But then again, I also do not acknowledge wookiees as a sentient species worth more than wump rats

I really want the Selkath in the game, they are my favourite Star Wars race!
And they played a big part in the KOTOR game so it would be great having them as a playable race.

Selkath for the Republic, Nikto for the Empire.
Peace can be found, above all passions. Through passion, I may gain strength.
Through strength, I may gain power. Through power, I may gain victory.
But for every enemy fallen, a new foe rises.
For every chain broken, new chains bind me. Only the Force can set me free.

Well i would like yoda's race or something like that. While i know it would be very difficult to do, i would like a race that has a different stature than our current human types. A short one would be a good start.
I would love Jawa and Ewok aswell... but if they must speak basic, yoda's race is the only option i see.

For the same body types we already have... Kaleesh, Voss, Mon calamari. Its unlikely i would create a new toon with the same builds we already have though.

Yodas species is not an option.

I do literally wake up from nightmares at times, when I see a group of Yoda-species dressed in dancer outfits, colored in bright pink, dancing to a party droid, while a group of Wookiee and Ewok stand guard and perform the salute emote.

Some species should never be in the hands of the players and Yodas is definitely one.
