Setting aside the whole Wookie-Jedi matter, the could implement those races for current classes too, they'd just need to record the alien speech and keep the subtitles.
Still not a reason for BioWare to implement them soon.
Everything is STAR WARS is the best.

Look, there are species already in-game that speak perfect basic that can be dressed just finely already acting as NPCs and companions.

Togruta, Devaronian, Cathar, Kel Dor, Mon Calamiri, Weequay, and Sarkhai, for example.

That's what you're gonna see.

If I had to make a guess, I would say the 'new races' would follow two rules.

(1) They will likely, initially, at least, be re-skins. So you would see Voss, Zeltrons, possibly Devaronians (though the females look rather different than the males do).

(2) They will be done so as not to require new stories or classes.

That's not to say such things are impossible. But EAWare has a lot on the plate right now, including several issues that the player base is actively grousing about. I wouldn't expect a new race past Cathar to arrive anytime soon, a year at the very least.

As for Yoda...I wonder if Disney will honor Lucas's desire to keep that secret...? Hm.

As for Empire, I would like to see the Voss drop a pair to sign on the with the Empire...If not them, the Trandoshans, for a little extra muscle.
...Plus...Trando Sith Lord? Bad. ***.

There's 100's of well developed races in the Star Wars universe and TOR is allowed to make more.

It's in the lore. There's been one wookie.

No, there's been a lot. The cartoon recently had one, ending forever this silly debate as Lucas says it's "his cannon" and a wookie jedi was in it.

ewok wouldnt work unless it was a crafting based species only.

gungan wouldnt work due to the history

wookie woul be cool but your character would make sounds the whole time and i wouldnt want them to be anything but a rifle class.

yodas specie needs to stay in the dark

This is easy all the way around. There are certain things through the lore and through the series we all know.

The republic needs to have wookies (non force classes). Bothans would be cool, and Mon Cal's

The empire Needs to have Transdosians,(non force using), and rodians, devorians. The Chiss should have never made it into the game as they through lore we not discovered yet.

There should be no Ewok race, No Yoda race (they are super rare) no gungans, no jawas

On top of that they need to take time and add the trooper, smuggler, Bounty Hunter and Agents to both factions.

The Sith have troopers, the sith use smugglers (talon Karrade), the republic used BH's and the CIS are AGENTS. The force classes need to be separate.
