They've given the answer to this before. This turned out to be a much bigger hurdle than they initially anticipated (requiring them to go back over every single item with a hood), which would demand a lot of art resources to do. They regret ever promising it. However they still want to do it, no ETA.

I imagine it would be difficult if they wanted to reinvent the wheel. The mechanic already exists (see twi'leks). It wouldn't be too hard to enable that behavior on a switch for other races (since everyone has the same body type models). I'm guessing they either just don't want to do this at all (and are using the typical 'too difficult' excuse) or would prefer people stuck with nothing for years while they try to slowly cobble something superior (in their minds) together.

But see, people don't want a "hood vanish" option like it is used for Twi'leks (as you propose) and other species like Trandoshans; people want an actual hood toggle where the hood is either up or folded down at the back but still there! Personally, I can understand how that can get tedious for Bioware to implement if they have to actually create "hood folded down" versions of each and every hooded item they have...

I'm fine with hood vanish, i'd wear actual jedi and sith clothes then and not bounty hunter/trooper clothes.

Depends on the person you talk to. You can only really speak for yourself.

Maybe. But last I heard about this issue, this was the reason why Bioware found it so tedious to implement it. Apparently they want a real toggle instead of a simple removal as well.

Yes, but in theory, what is stopping them to allow manual triggering of the "Twi'lek hack" while they are working on some animated sequence? Temporary (or semi-permanent) measure, several people would be happy, if you dislike it, do not use it and keep your hood up

They obviously didn't have enough time to make a toggle hood option.
Toggle hood would be more important than those things.

I'm fairly certain they're not withholding this feature just for an animation.
