Best "Lore" Race for a class?

It's a bit of an old thread, but I'm really surprised so many people went Chiss for Imperial Agent.

Yes, it makes some sense, because Chiss tend to be more mysterious, but the Empire is very much "Human's First" when it comes to positions of authority. If you notice, pretty much everyone in Imperial Intelligence is a human or cyborg. You see more diverse people as Sith, simply because power trumps race.

Jedi Knight: Human or Miraluka
Jedi Counselor: Miraluka or Mirialan
Trooper: Zabrak or Cyborg
Smuggler: Human or Cyborg

Sith Warrior: Sith Pureblood (it really makes the most sense)
Sith Inquisitor: Twilek or Human (Human probably, due to the bloodline thing)
Imperial agent: Human or Cyborg
Bounty Hunter: Anything really! Though likely an alien species.

While it is quite funny to imagine a blue red-eyed fellow trying to blend in well, almost anywhere, it's better just pay no attention to details like that. Because it may lead to thinking on bigger issues, such as how in bloody heck can Empire function at all, when its ruling caste possess all the mentality - and maturity - of extremely spoiled, petulant, temper tantrum throwing, self-sabotaging preteens with no concept of long term goals. And this can lead to your immersion imploding on itself and the setting never taken seriously anymore.

Zabrak or any other alien species would work well for the inquisitor. You begin as a slave after all. Threatening imperials for insulting aliens can be quite fun.

Idea Class and Race:

Jedi Knight: Human, Guardian (Obviously)
Consular: Miraluka, Sage (Seems like the Seer, force wisdom class)
Smuggler: Human, Scoundrel (Our favourite nerf-herder)
Trooper: Cyborg, Vanguard (I see troopers rushing headfirst into battle with a rifle, not an assault cannon)

Warrior: Cyborg, Juggernaut (Vader?)
Inquisitor: Zabrak or Twi'lek. This one's debatable. Zabrak, assassin. Twi'lek, sorcerer.
Bounty Hunter: Cyborg, Powertech. (Thinking Powertech because it's more random than mercenary. IE, it's professional, but uses a lot of tools to get the job done)
Agent: Chiss, Operative. (Sniper also fits it, as you assassinate a few people, but I feel like Agent just fits Operative better)
Expløit
Ønslaught
Eradicate

Jedi Knight: Human (Basic Race, fits nicely.)
Jedi Consular: Miraluka (Using the force to see, matches perfectly)
Smuggler: Female Twi'lek (Fits nicely for story.)
Trooper: Zabrak/Human. (Military races.)

Sith Warrior: Sith Pureblood/Zabrak.
Inquisitor: Zabrak/Twi'lek (both enslaved races.)
Hunter: Human/Chiss.
Agent: Chiss.

nah he was right on. Rattataki haven't been known to be that exceptionally gifted in the force.

BH -cyborg or Rattataki. i'd say the latter tho.. (have you heard the voice!?)

Sith Inquisitor - Human/ twi-lek/ Zabrak fits. Though i'd say Human is more likely.

Jedi Knight: Human or Cyborg (Cyborg is human and as a soldier it's likely to get hurt sometimes)
Jedi Consular: Miraluka if Sage, Mirialan if Shadow, for me Mirialans have always felt a bit mysterious and so have Shadows so this fits well
Trooper: Cyborg for same reason than JK. Human fits too
Smuggler: Human if male, Twi'lek if female

Sith Warrior: Human or Cyborg
Sith Inquisitor: Human or Twi'lek
Hunter: Any race expect Miraluka fits. Cathar is my personal favorite
Agent: Human, they're Empire's basic people and won't draw attention (which is good for undetcover worker)
