I don't believe that there will be specific fraction races for one big reason alone:

Development inefficiency.

They will not spend the time to make separate races when they can make one race that will work for both sides. it's literally twice the development time. They have fraction specific races in the game now, but that was pre-launch development, when they had tons of money flowing in the coffers. were talking about a company that is not continuing the class stories (makeb has one storyline for all, slight variations to make us feel good), and they are not expanding the companion storylines. I doubt they are going to double their work on race development either.

Cool idea, but don't think it will realistically happen.

Voss.

The Emperor seems to have quite a curiousity on the Voss, if not quite fond of them.



And the Voss are made of 1% visions + 99% of sheer win.

FYI Purebloods are Sith-Human hybrids... They have far slimmer bodies, only their faces feature the large bone shapes, many of them don't have facial tendrils and they all have five digits and usually right-handed...

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.
???
Have BioWare ever said, to pick one example, that the Empire doesn't have any soldiers? No, in fact you can see them all over their worlds. Does it mean BioWare are forced to create an Imperial Trooper class & story? Why should they? Who says that in that period of Galactic History there had been an outstanding Imperial Trooper (or SIS Agent or BH that worked for the Republic or Smuggler that worked for the Empire?) and, on top of that, whose story could be implemented in SWTOR rather than be told through other media?
Everything is STAR WARS is the best.

That's what you're gonna see.
Before they add the Togruta, Nautolan, or Chagrian, then I would hope that they fix the problems with the Twi'lek's Lekku.

For the Devaronians, it would mostly be interesting to see if they get the major differences between the Male and Female Devaronians.

Cathar we already know we are getting, and honestly, I hope that when they are added, that we get to choose between the variations of Cathar.

With the Kel Dor, the major appearance difference would be in changing of their Breathing Masks, though they might suffer from the same or similar problem that the Miraluka suffer when it comes to some of their Eye Masks.

With the Mon Cal's, their Heads and Hands might be problematic with some of the Helmets and Hand Gears

Weequay might present Helmet issues

And well the Sarkhai would be easy to do as they would be somewhat similar to the Mirialan but only having white skin (instead of green) and white hair (instead of being able to choose from any color [other species] or black and brown (Mirialan). But their Tattoos would be the primary difference between the Sarkhai's just as they are the primary difference between the Mirialan

My dog is equal to a wolf until the species

But not the same sub-species.

And they are quite different, not only appearance-wise but also behaviour-wise.


So don't some with fallacies, human filth. I can trace my bloodline to Adas' Sith concubine #7.

Ok.. what lore have you read up on? because ive never known Lucas to qouote that SW law, or do you mean in this era?.. because if you mean in this era then thats understandable.. but general lore your wrong.. my example is this.. Jedi Master Tyvokka was a Wookiee and ALSO once the master one one Jedi Master Plo Koon
