I've had a few speices-related questions about star wars in general so hopefully someone can help me out.

1. Is there a species (or more than one) that are considered the "Spartans" of the starwars universe? (Please don't debate about real life spartans not being as good as Hollywood Spartans) basically a species famous for being really good fighters.

2. It seems to me that female twi'leks are considered the "sexy" species that all the guys of every species want to be with and watch dance. Is there a male species that has a similar effect on the women of the starwars universe?

3. Are there species that are considered extremely intelligent/smarter than most of the other species?

4. Is there a certain species that all the other species really like or hate? Like basically everyone loves them or hates them.

1st one that come to mined is the Yoda species but there mostly classed as Wise so it sort of falls into your question there are other species in star wars that have better Tec then others but more intelligent thats a matter of opinion.

1. The Taung(AKA: The original Mandos)

2. Not sure that has been clarified in lore.

3. Probably not, can't think of any. I guess you could say the Rakata

4. Not sure of this question.

Falleen males use pheromones to sway women from what I remember from the Thrawn books.

Edit: Though that is kind of cheating and they don't do it by just their looks. ^^

Everyone is right about the Mandos being Spartans. As to this: Columi.

What about Kaleesh in the Spartan Category? (Can there be two?)

I agree with Falleen for #2

Probably the Gree for #3?

#4 is tough since I think most species are defined by a single dominant trait: i.e. Jawas are "filthy scavengers," Hutts are "Cruel Gangsters," Trandoshans are "Brutish Slavers". This leads to most everyone sharing a common opinion about each species, yeah? Am I way off base on this one?

1) The Taung or Mandaloreans, since the Taung are gone by the time of the game.
2) Depends upon the woman.
3) The Gree for Technology, The Chiss for Tactics and Strategy (especially Thrawn).
4) Gamorians, although Jawas, Sandpeople, Ithorians, and Sith Purebloods could be argued too.
Peace can be found, above all passions. Through passion, I may gain strength.
Through strength, I may gain power. Through power, I may gain victory.

For every chain broken, new chains bind me. Only the Force can set me free.

3. Rakata (well at least historically)

Warrior: I must.

Zeltron, but the Falleen, as has been said here, can use pheromones to trigger desire in others.
