Gravity Uniformity

My guess? It's because of either the Infinite Empire or the Gree again. Apparently those species used all their time creating galactic anomalies and making sure that all sentient species were humanoid.

It would take a fair amount of time to freeze to death in space.
The only way for heat to be lost is through radiation, which is one of the biggest problems of space craft/suits/stations etc.
You'll suffocate long before freezing to death.

im going to go ahead and say TitusVorenus has it all down, and that was enough for me

I always figured their was different gravity on other planets that were inhospitable.
Or they just weren't worth going to in a game, because of their inconsistency from the normal environment meant they didn't have much story happening on them.

Like how Hoth was deserted and they used it as a rebel base.
Or how Tatooine was barren and boring so finding Anakin there was a big deal.

Also its worth noticing that a lot of the locations are called [cool name] [insert number] moon/planet, in the [other weird name] system
For example:
Tython is one of nine colonized planets in the Tython system. the gravity is probably negligibly different at each and if there are other non-colonized planets in the system they would likely have a large range of gravity

Ya I know, but they had air and how long would it take someone to freeze to death without a suit? Though...they weren't outside of the falcon for very long, even so though.

But then again in the films we never see a gravity difference; but this is due to the prohibitive cost of filming extra terrestrially, and not necessarily by any fault of Mr. lucas.

Space suits aren't for staying warm, they're for staying cool whilst keeping you safe from the vacuum of space.
They're so bulky and spacious to keep you from over heating.

Ok so burning up then.

First of all, you're really comparing apples to oranges when complaining that physics in another universe are not the same as ours. Let me start off by saying that if you support superstring theory, each universe has its own set of rules. Because there are an infinite number of universes, there is a very real possibility that there exists a "Star Wars" universe.

In Star Wars' universe, we can probably assume that they have the ability to manipulate gravity. Given this, the beings there have probably altered the gravity of all planets to be the same. After all, they do have the ability to stop light and form a blade with it.

Without a space suit, they'd only start to "burn up" if in direct sunlight.
Outside of it, they'd slowly radiate their body heat. The greater likelihood is that they'd suffocate before freezing (through radiation of body heat and made sure any orifices were closed), if they hadn't been inside the giant space worm thing.
Really, they should have thought something was wrong when they weren't sucked out into space when the door opened.
