I've noticed some discrepancies in the class stories and also in KOTFE/KOTET:

First, if your sith warrior is a male twilek, Vette doesn't seem to acknowledge that, neither does Baras when he sends you to jail to talk to Vette.
Second, if your jedi consular is a twilek, the people from Kalikori village ( twilek village..) don't seem to acknowledge that either, they just call you "jedi" and that's all
Third : in "Gemini deception" after you free Tai Cordan, Zasha Ranken & Malita Tal from their cells, only Tai Cordan remembers the Outlander ( if he's a jedi consular). How can Zasha Ranken not remember the Sith/BH/IA Outlander when you've met before on Kuat Drive? ?
Fourth: if your BH is chiss, the chiss from Hoth ( dude guarding Blizz and Aristocra *forgot his name* don't even see it,would be nice to say " cool, you're one of us" or something.
Fifth : Vailyn's ugly dress and head scarf - she's on a budget or what? Even at her coronation she's wearing the same .. gimme a break, your whole wardrobe is full of 200 copies of the same outfit??

Some classes were intended for specific races. It makes little sense to run a SW that's not pureblood/human. Same goes for inquisitor, storywise it doesn't make sense to be a pureblood.

Yeah, we know. Some of those come from the original intent of which species the classes were meant to be, but in other cases (that you didn't mention), that's not so. Of course that doesn't excuse any of Vaylin's (and Arcann's, for that matter) sartorial minimalism, but...

As for Admiral Ranken, well, the thing that doesn't make sense there is that *she* doesn't acknowledge meeting you if you *have* done KDY, while the Alliance Specialist Aygo *does* acknowledge meeting you even if you *haven't* done KDY.

Consider the case of the poor Agent whose player chose to create a Rattataki.

Rattataki is one of the original Agent species options, except that nobody anywhere in the story EVER notices that you are one.

Result: When you go to see Darth J on Dromund Kaas (and in theory you have only one companion, the illustrious Kaliyo Djannis), you are told by his guards that "the Rattatki must wait outside". There's no option to answer, "Which one?" or, "Both of us?" or anything like that.

Result: In the conversation where Raina Temple is about to join you on Hoth, she asks you about "the Rattataki" as if you aren't one yourself.

Result: At the beginning of Corellia, someone comes to try to take away "the Rattataki", meaning KD herself. They don't take you away.

Result: Kaliyo herself, in a companion-story conversation, tells you about her life growing up on Rattatak(1) as if there's no way you'd know. She doesn't comment on your accent or anything else that might give her a reason to think you grew up somewhere else.

(1) Sounds like a perfectly horrible place.

I imagine something like :

Darth J: the Rattataki must wait outside
IA: which one? me? her? both?
Darth J: ..oh LOL you are a rattataki..

More likely:

IA: which one? me? her? both?
Darth J: ...

The game didn't really start acknowledging what species you were until about Shadow of Revan. And again in Copero. Before that you were one of two categories human/pureblood or alien.
Bioware, please remember our companion spouses when doing new expansions. I want scenes, letters, or something from them, saying they're worried!

One of the funnier ones is playing a Twilek JC and going to the Twiliek colony and not being treated like a Twilek.

The funniest one is on Hoth in the imp side planet story arc playing a chiss and being introduced to a chiss; you get the conversation choice to ask what is a chiss LOL.

or playing a Cathar Trooper or Smuggler and being told what a Cathar is, on Ord Mantell LOL

Cathar I can understand because it was not an original species.

All of these little quirky interactions though stem from one cause: they could not anticipate every single possible conflicting quirk and do voice acting for it. They made the decision that in the overwhelming majority of cases the character would NOT be X species and therefore the standard interactions work fine.
