From a Sith perspective, I'd like to state that Jawas are rats with hoods, they make funny noises when you cut them in two with your lightsaber, and cauterized Jawa flesh leaves a bacon-y smell in the air. Beyond this very apetizing odor I don't see any use for their existence.

It's just TOO "iconic". Let's break out of the mold a bit and try different pairings than Han + Chewie and Luke + R2.
I don't see why that should deter anyone from playing those classes. You only have to use the "iconic" companions for specific missions.

Personally, I'd like to see more "normal" companions, not weirder ones. "Normal" as in typical members of that faction and preferably human. I don't play certain classes because their companions are just too strange. Blizz is the single biggest reason I don't play a Bounty Hunter.

I don't know why some people are determined to turn this game into a freak show. I love the fact that the humour in this game is the kind of humour that adds to, not detracts from the setting. Things like the smuggler making wisecracks are lovely to see and make me enjoy the game more. What I can't stand is the kind of humour that is aimed at parodying the setting. I have left MMOs in the past because it all got too silly and juvenile.

When it comes down to it, I want to play a Star Wars game, not a Star Wars parody. Everytime I see BW adding party jawas and jawagrams I come one step closer to quitting.

I don't need a Jawa-Companion. Others want to have one.

Idea: If you introduce new companions, give players the choice between different options.

Spoiler


You mean companions like Malavai Quinn, Lt. Felix Iresso, and Tharan Cedrax? I can't stand them. Malavai is a slimy , Felix' voice acting is terrible, and Tharan sounds like a snotty pubescent kid. On the other hand, companions like Mako and Andronikus are pretty good. Personally I'd prefer more companions like Kaliyo or Nadia though. Human-looking but different enough to be interesting. Jawa pets are fine, one jawa companion is enough though.

edit: Hmm, actually more alien-looking companions might be better. The Gand companion for the trooper is pretty cool. There's also this bat/mouse-like race that speaks in a whistling language (appears in the movies and KOTOR II, can't remember the species) that's jawa-like. It could make a decent alternative to a Jawa.

Except for the Trooper, every class has more human companions than any other alien species or race.

I hear you man. I mean it's not like George Lucas had some freaky alien clown in Ep.1 named Jar-Jar or had the characters walking around with a golden prissy robot. I mean where did Bioware even come up with Jawas in the first place? It's not like you saw them in the first 30 minutes of the first movie or anything?

Walks behind you. Says funny Jawa like things if you talk to them. Randomly picks the pockets of enemies while I'm fighting them!

I'm sorry, but Party Jawa without Balloons and Confetti is not Party Jawa.
