SWTOR story is getting way too human centralized

My feeling is that I would love to make more characters of different species but the bottom line is that Humans have so many more customization options which allows for more creative diversity in their looks.

Why they've not made options available to other species is really hurting altaholics like myself and is probably the main reason why almost everywhere you look there are Humans. It's a very neglected aspect of this game and I don't know why that is.

I would love to stop making Humans but the options just aren't there.

Zakuul is a primarily human civilization. Most aliens there are foreigners.

The Empire has been incredibly... Speciesist? (Racist just doesn't fit) For the longest time. Only recently have aliens been accepted there.

Only the Republic has been really -alien- diverse, and we saw that with chapter 11 and Aric Jorgan.

But considering humans are by far the most populous of the species in the galaxy, I'm not surprised it seems human-centric. Personally, I'm not concerned with how many aliens will pop up in the story. I'm more concerned with how well written they'll be. There's a world of difference between Vette and Kaliyo and Jorgan and Koth, ya know.

Is Senya a human? I thought she was a near human species of some kind.

My characters are mostly human, except:
* Male Rattataki Imperial Agent.
* Female Toggie Jugg.
* Female Cyborg Commando.
* Female Miraluka Guardian, she of little clothing
* Several Female Mirialan Sages (but they are almost just humans with green skin)
* And my current favourite, Female Rattataki Darth Nox (Lightning Sorc). She dresses all in white(2), and shows Dark V DS corruption. It darkens her face(1), so you have this shadowy face with red(3) glowing eyes staring out at you.

(1) Rattataki cannot become paler by showing high-rank DS corruption. They are already as pale as pale can be.

(2) Except one outfit I created for disguise purposes for after Arcann broadcasts her look to all of Zakuul, Kreia dyed Black/Black.

(3) I know it isn't lore-compatible, but it *looks* awesome.

The word you are looking for is "xenophobic". Phobic about xenos. (Yeah, I've played a bit of WH40K, and at the moment I'm enjoying Freeblade on my iPad.)

And I'd hesitate before saying that aliens have been accepted in the Empire. My Rattataki Darth Nox candidate had to put down Major Wossname's son on Balmorra like the bigoted scum he was. "Alien filth" indeed!

Pah, I completely forgot about Xenophobic... Yeah, that makes sense.

Perhaps "barely tolerated" would be a better description for current day aliens in Imperial territory.

Valkorian is a member of the old Empire, the very Empire which hated aliens and demoralized them at every turn, not surprising to see only humans among his utopia as this is what he considers perfect. I too wish their was more variety however, and they could of simply used the magic of deux ex machinima of the alliance to give us a alien from some supporting planet.

You want a character similar to Jakarro and his droid companion C2-D4 who became one of the main heroes of Shadow of Revan?
