Clearly people want to be wookies. That's cool, but I see one problem:

Even if you could get past the fact that all your fur would be under armour, and your wookiee somehow speaks perfect english, there is still one thing that bothers me: body type 4.

I mean, who wants to see a fat wookiee

Besides, The wookies in this game just isn't Tall or big and stalkie enough, i like to see a Taller and Bigger Model for the Wookies in this game before i want to see them as a playable Species.

Kashyyyk After being freed from slavery merely 3 centuries ago, i doubt the empire could even get close to this plenet in this timeline. And the wookies only recently joined the galaxy in general, and are not really mebers of the republic yet either.
Naboo Only a very new (also around 300 years) colony, apparantly not much contact with the gungans, and seemingly very spread out settlements. No real value so no point in any of the factions coming here.
Kamino Hardly known to anyone in the galaxy at this time (or any other time for that matter).
Geonosis This is the only one i would even consider worth including. Decent neautral ground for both factions, mainly a gladiator world so it could be a good focus for some PvP content, but also some decent intrigues for PvE.
Mustafar Currently still in a major global cataclysm, the instability of the planet would make it a poor choice to include in the game.

I know these are all classics, but it would be amazing.

Anyone agree? Disagree?
I strongly disagree. (my reasons are included in the quote in red)
Most of these planets would make poor inclusions in the game in any other form than a flashpoint or maby an operation.
And even then some of them would make little sense other than fan favour (and we have enough of that).
Why not have more new planets instead?
Why this incessant fixation on a few of the millions of planets in the known galaxy of star wars?
Its pretty silly to have all the major events of all time take place on the same few planets.
Better to include some unknown or little known planets instead.

I'd like to see the Voidstar - complete, big, huge, and filled with NPCs - both of the imperial guards (defenders) and of republic invaders (slicers etc. ).

Well made out, it would be as big as a small "planet" in its own right (I'm thinking of the size of Quesh here).

It will be exciting about what planets we will see for the new Star Wars trilogy 7 - 9.

I want to see new planets in the new films and they will be added in the future for this game.

Yavin IV, Geonosis and Kashyyk would be next for next year to be added into the galaxy map.

What about Utapau and Rhen Var?

What about Blenjeel?

It's a planet that was introduced in "Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy", it's a desert planet with sandworms as the only known creatures to roam it. It has lighting storms during the day, and has been marked as a "Stay away" planet by the Republic.
This wouls be a great way for the EU to add more content, I mean if you go to the Wookieepedia page of Blenjeel, it's just a few lines. It has potential.

Yavin 4... A must. It was a really nice planet to RP on in SWG. And in the TOR timeline, it's quite important already.

Regardless of which planets are added, I'd like to see more planets that take place at night or during the late evening during sunset, because right now, aside from those with heavily polluted atmospheres, every planet is bright, sunny, and in the middle of the day except for Imperial Taris, Dromund Kaas, Nar Shaddaa, and Ilum.

A few Planets Id like to personally see and how Bioware could make them play out in TOR.

Osuss - its the Jedis first home after what happened on Tython. Ive always felt like the Lore from the EU made the Jedi seem more spread out, larger then what we were allowed to see in the Movies. And that would be more consistent with what the Jedi were meant to do. You cant provide Peace and Justice for a Galactic Nation when youre nothing more then a sole Church on a sole Planet. The EU provided us with Enclaves and KOTOR kind of backed this up. According to EU Lore this planet was nearly obliterated during the time of Freedon Nadd but through out the centuries remained a place of interest. Introducing a side storyline of rumors of remaining Jedi Knowledge could spur Empire and Republic Recovery Teams. This would obviously result in conflict and this could be another High Level Planet. ( It can also be an opportunity for more FP and OPs for Endgame providing more gear and loot drops of 'Ancient' but powerful Weapons and Armor.)

Yavin 4 - This has been the site of numerous events in Star Wars history and has a long history of playing a part in the larger conflicts of the Galaxy. It would be a nice addition to 'side missions' for the Mid-Level range of Players. Since it has a long standing history with the Sith it would act as the same as Osuss in that the Sith are there to plunder any possible Relics while the Republic is there to attempt to obliterate the Relics and at the same time strike at the Empire. Numerous FPs and OPs can be placed here for Mid and High Level players.

MyrKr - There doesnt seem to be all that much information on this planet besides the interesting life thats evolved there and issues with Criminals taking refuge. But this makes it an opportunity for Bioware to develop some more lore and insight to this place. Maybe the Republic is looking to develop a technology around the Force Bubbles. And the Empire is looking to destroy/steal any research and developments made by the Republic. It be a really nice Endgame addition.

Endor - The movies made the Ewoks cute and cuddly. But the first contact between the Rebels and Ewoks was quite dark. The Ewoks could be expanded upon here with a more gray rather then black and white attitude. And maybe a future doomed group of 'settlers' for the Republic are warring with the Ewoks while the Empire is attempting to establish a Base of Operations there that they can use to further their cause against the Republic.. I know people are going to argue that there wasnt much to Endo in the Movies. And theyre right. Some might even say that it makes no sense for Settlers. But Settlements tend to either succeed or go horribly wrong. And this could reflect how even at this juncture in SW History. Colonizing is still risky business. (A few sidemissions for low to mid level play could end up here. With the opportunity for PvP, FPs and OPs.)

Wookieepedia points out that around this timeframe the Republic had discovered it already and had set up a secret lab on it 8 years after the Treaty of Coruscant. Guess how many years took place between the Treaty and the In-Game Time?
