Every race I can think of would be Republic:

Ewok
Gungan
Wookie
Whatever Yoda is

Why would the races be faction specific?

I think that the real issue is you have to add species that are kinda-human like. They have to have mouths that make human noises, and can speak English. Example, if you had a Wookie character who spoke American English... well that would be the end of star wars I guess. Same thing with the Ewoks.

Gungans would not work because of the time line. If you have ever played Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds, you get to play through a campaign of Gungan history between 4000-3500 BBY. The Naboo humans haven't even laned on the planet yet. Gugans were not in space until the Clone Wars anyways. It would really damage the cannon if Gungans were added.

In short, it needs to be a near-human race if they are going to add anything. The Cathar is a good start, Devorians would be cool too?

Devaronian would make a good empire race.. however unsure how it could fit into many classes with the lore and how strict the empire is in this era (I know they respect an individual who is of a slave race who has pushed themselves to the limit to become what they are, but at the same time still think of them as scum due to not being human/pureblood)

Well, also it is illegal to make any Wookiee Jedi or Sith. Think I kid? Look it up, some book did that and the writer got sued. IDK why, but Lucas said NO wookie is aloud to have the force. So in short I am not really sure how many new races you could add, I think they got the two coolest ones in there already, Sith and Chiss lol

While there are indeed restrictions on what races can be/do, I thought a Wookiee could wield the Force.

Such a small minds. They said they could eventually implement Wookiees and other non-basic speaking races, however it would require them creating their own classes (this is pretty easy to do since we just have 8 that are constant mirrors of each other) and stories.

On the Wookiees and hte force, the statement was actually made during the creation of KOTOR II. When the development studio, Obsidian was told by Lucas Arts "No more wookiee Jedi" This is not that wookiees cannot use the force, simply that they couldn't be Jedi.

I assume this only applies to the gaming universe of Star Wars as Lucas recently had a Wookie youngling in The Clone Wars cartoon series.
