Wookiee cannot speak basic, so they are automatically ruled out.

Also: This idea was brought up never before.... oh wait... no sorry, I made a mistake here... it was brought up a hundred times before!

Finally: It is wrong to be a wookiee.

If you can't see the species kiss Princess Leia without feeling awkward or gross, you will never be playing one anytime soon.

And you people really need to learn how to take rejection better. 98% of you people act like if one single person doesn't like your idea, your entire existence is in jeopardy.

Get over it.

Three reasons.

1. They have to be humanoid enogh so that they don't cause terrible camera positioning and can wear gear without big clipping issues.

2. They have to speak basic because the alien language soundbite does in fact get very very ear gratingly annoying after a while and Bioware actually wants you to enjoy the character.

3. They must be romancable with the current love interest companions.

You may not like the rules, but they are there. Either suck it up and move on or just move on. Some species will just be NPC. Some will be playable. Moping about on the forums isn't going to change the rules and honestly, if you can't even spell the species name correctly, why should Bioware even bother? Wookiee. TWO. E's. Not that hard to remember.

It's not an opinion or a like or dislike issue. The reasons we arent getting them are because of technical issues.

Anything we get has to speak basic (english), has to have the same height and build as body types 1-4, and they even have to be 'romanceable'.
I'm not really a noob...

Because it takes a lot of time to create hundreds of humanoid species. Every non-humanoid species is automatically ruled out, as it would cause a heap of problems such as camera issues, jumping, target box, etc.... Even the animations when a Jedi/sith does a normal sabre strike at a tiny person, would look absolutely silly (they would slice the air above the persons head, but the target would still take damage). All these necessary adjustments are just not worth the trouble.

If you do not want to hear valid commentary on your posts, your only option is to not post.

I am all for improvements of this game, but the inclusion of wookiee as a playable race would in my opinion not improve the game, but make it a lot worse.
By current game mechanic every species is ultimately allowed to be used for every class. And despite all the butchering of lore that did already happen, I will never stop voicing my concerns about further butchering of lore. A Wookiee as a Darth in the empire? No way.
