Well we have the Anzat, who are quite vampire like. Then you have Sith Sorcery that has created zombies, as well as the Blackwing virus. In the "Clone Wars" the Dothomiri made an Army of the Dead (where's Ash when you need him?) and then again in "Death Troopers". Dr Evanzan created a resurrection serum similar to "Herbert West - Re-Animator" by H.P. Lovecraft (although I do love Jeffrey Combs in the movie). The Rakghouls are ghouls if you take away Rak.
They could also be compared to lyncanthropes, since once bitten the change into a beast. Speaking of werewolves, there is the Codru-Ji.

Why is a sucubbus such a stretch?
It's amazing how loud a dollar can be.

It's more like yet another step in a downward spiraling path of cheap cash-ins to blend in with other fantasy fiction.

If I saw space elves, I'd be very tempted to jump ship.

Funny you said that, Star Wars elves are called Sephi.
Plus, Warhammer 40K has space elves, they are called Eldar.

I don't see what the issue is with the comic cover. Already have winged people in Star Wars. We have the S'kytri, one of which was an apprentice to Vader. And Zeltron were pretty much the Incubus/Succubus race of Star Wars. Elves they already kinda had with Arkanians who had that high-mighty attitude like High Elves, and Master Arca of the Jedi was actually part alien and had Pointed Ears, to which Jarael inherited.

There was giant cricket in the Mos Eisley cantina in Episode IV before editing, and you're worried about a chick with wings? Live a little lol.
Edited because the devs appear to have fixed at least 80% of the crap that was pissing me off.

There was already a succubus-like being in SW before this. I can't remember which book it was but Lando had asked Luke to help find him a wife, and one of the prospective candidates they were investigating was basically a succubus.
This was shortly before Lando tried to romance Mara Jade, so obviously before Luke & Mara's romance and marriage took place.

I have seen the winged people in some of the really old star wars comics. I think either Luke or Han saved thier planet.

I don't know what Sephi are, but they probably are lame cash-ins on fantasy troupes, unless you declare otherwise.

Doesn't really affect my stance.
