the problem is that the dawn of the jedi comics seems to contridcit this, however it's entirely possiable that the rakata simply modified existing templates. playing with the genetics of already force sensitive species in an attempt to make them more receptive to use of the force

There's lots of previous EU lore that contradicts TOR lore.

It seemed reasonable enough, as the only Twi'leks at the time were Jabba's major domo, and of course the dancers. Along comes The Phantom Menace, however, and blammo, fat Twi'leks.

The time of phantom menace still had Czkera Corporation, after many trails they found obesity to be the best weapon in the galaxy. They introduce Mc Donalds to the core worlds first as a way to finally kill of Darth Baras with diabetes, second was to get the known races dependent on their supplied treatments that is how we got fat Twi'leks.
By the time of the new hope the empire took over Czkera and shutdown the McDonalds weapons. But not in time to save the first clone troopers most of them feel to the double quarter pounder Nerf burger.

Chiss not being heard of is one that springs to mind first. Yes, they came up with a background to try and explain it away but it still contradicts EU lore.

It's not hard to believe that Twi'leks and Zabraks, which are a little stranger, but still pretty damn human, were genetically engineered to be the way they are while following a human template or the like.
No clue why, but I busted out laughing at he "derped around on strange planets" part of this paragraph.
