Because in almost every poll they were in the top 3, and they are plentiful in the game, so yeah. Majority says Cathar go in, so they go in. Deal with it?

In my opinion the playable species that are in the game already are so visually alike it's painful. I know it's been said before, but it is true that they are all basically humans with different coloured skin. Only the twileks stand out a bit, which is why all my characters are twilek, in an attempt to bring a bit of visual diversity to the game.
Therefore to me the cathar is a dull and pointless choice to add as playable race; they are just yet another race looking like humans but with a different skin colour.
I know BW painted themselves into a corner with the cut-scenes since all races must have a human-body size and shape because of them.
But there are plenty of races with bodies with human shape and size but heads that look far from human, Selkath, Togruta, Wookie, even Gungan would have been more fun for pete's sake!

Please BW, next time, give us a race that doesn't look human

Other than the cathar that would leave the nautolans, weequay, togruta, and maybe the duros as the next set of probable species to be added.
Half the time the kissing animations are broken anyway, with characters not reaching each other and kissing thin air, or stepping too close and kissing the inside of each other's heads, so I wouldnt put this down as a criteria

I don't care about the races that much.All I want is a pure-mandalorian class (something like what they had on City of Heroes with the Arachnos Soldier class?)

Sigh... I will admit I came to story and lore to read some sensible posts, but apparently I'm in the minority.

There are no cats in star wars. Cats are just about the furthest you can get from star-warsy.
(Sorry Comics do not count)

Thundercats with lightsabers is an epic fail. On a Panda scale.

Saying there are no cats in Star Wars is being very short-sighted and narrowminded. Comics DO count as canon, making Cathar canon. Are canine races not Star Warsy? What about the Bothans? They are a canine race. Why can't there be a feline race as well? There are so many types of aliens in the SW universe that you would be a fool to believe that cat-people wouldn't exist. Look at all the lizard and insectoid type races there are.

You may hate the idea of Cathar but many others love and want them. You may not want to believe it, but Cathar are canon and part of the Galaxy far, far away. Accept and deal with it.

I bet by the end of next year we will see both Togruta and Nautolan as the next races we get. We just have to keep the pressure on.
