a character can be speaking Twi'lek then ask what are Twi'leks, even if they have spoken to Twi'leks before (or they are a Twi'lek), also they can understand any language, so it's not learning,.
I know i'm quoting myself, but I already ruled this out, yes they might have picked up a few languages in training, the in game conversations make a joke of this as an explanation. However, I do like the boarding school twist for the warrior.
Peace can be found, above all passions. Through passion, I may gain strength.
Through strength, I may gain power. Through power, I may gain victory.
But for every enemy fallen, a new foe rises.
For every chain broken, new chains bind me. Only the Force can set me free.

Please do not joke about Doctor Who, it is a serious documentary (Joke). If you want to make fun out of something, plaese take the Michael out of politicians, that's what we British do.

I was always bothered by the idea that my characters can't come from any of the known planets.
"It's now very common to hear people say, 'I'm rather offended by that.' As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more...than a whine. 'I find that offensive.' It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well, so *********** what." - Stephen Fry

Most of them don't bug me, the PCs are supposed to be pretty cosmopolitan. The end boss for the planet quest on Tatooine is an annoying head-scratcher, though.

Meh, I just tend to make fun of the alien languages 'cause most of the time they tend to sound like something else in my native language. Like the Jawa that sells spaceship upgrade-parts on Tatooine, he says something like "Kip en tomatoes!" Hilarious.

For me, not really. My huntress is a Chiss; according to Wookiepedia and otehr sources, the Chiss language was difficult to learn, but the Chiss themselves could pick up other languages with ease, or so I remember.
