Walker mounts for this game

Ok I have been thinking about this every time i watch Ep. 3. There are a couple of times we get to see clones riding ATRTs(All Terrain Recon Transports). I think those would be awesome to have as mounts or something like those. I am not really asking to put in ATATs or ATSTs but just some single person walkers would be nice to have in this game.The only thing the devs have to do is make them look like walkers from this era and call them something different like Raid Scouter or Czerka STAP .

All I ask is to plz support this idea.Thank you

How would you explain something like that appearing on the CARTEL Market.. They still have to sort of stay within Lore.. Especially with a mount like that.. We aren't just talking about an imperial outfit that they designed.. You are asking about something from the movies.. I just can't see the Hutt Cartel gaining access to that mount.. Not realistically anyways..

But of course that is me..

Well it doesn't have to be the same.
We can already see that the republic and imperials have large scale walkers on ord mantell and coruscant and illum.

It would make sence for them to have smaller personal ones similar to the at-pt's used by empire during the movies

Exactly my point. Plus i only used the ATRTs as the base of my idea(For those who thought i wanted those in game). Like I said all they need to do is make some personal walker(Idc how it looks) and give it a cool name.Also I am pretty sure that there are more ppl who want Walker mounts more then Animal mounts in this community.

they better should make Animal mounts. and if you go lore,just say that the hutt cartel tamed the beasts and put them for sale. an animal as a mount could be for example Varcatyl or Nexu,there's much choices.

Ok heres my problem, The whole animal mount thing would make this game more like WoW. Also the Hutts mainly sold beast as pets to the most wealthy buyers.

Walker mounts would probably set this game farther apart from WoW because of the size it would be and also it would look like the proto designs for walkers like the AT-RT or many others.

And this goes for everyone who wants to ride a animal: If you want to ride a over grown lizard, Go back to WoW kid.

So the Sandtroopers on Tatooine riding a Dewback... were they from another universe? What about Obi-Wan and the Varactyl? The Mustafarians riding their creatures? It's just as Star Wars as walkers.

Oh and guess what....mounts were before WoW. So enough of this "it would turn it into WoW" crap.

Or Luke and Han on their Tauntauns? That's an iconic image from ESB.

Ok for all those examples above there is a logical explanation.
Sandtrooper on dewback(lets call him Tim): Machine + Desert planet = Heavy maintenance. see: Tatooine Ghost

ESB: Snowspeeders need fuel and mainly for mapping out a area(or taking down a ATAT or 2)

RotS: A speeder would have given Obi-wan away
