It's a sign of the times, my swtor sub has been used to sub a different game.

Just do the hovering baby carrier- closed. It can even have an animated visual effect of the top cracking open a bit and a little green hand dropping a silver 'ball' out or a frog-creature hopping out before it closes again.

No full visual of the yoda species to muck with lore hounds, but a nod to the fantastic series and a wonderful addition to all the bounty hunters wearing the new shiny armour off the CM.
There are circumstances in which you can destroy an enemy, without loss to your own, and yet the victory may still be his. In all situations, you must first decide on the nature of victory, and then take steps to secure it. Avoid the instinct of fight first and think later.

Not directed specifically at you...but one of the things I find annoying is when people self-appoint themselves as gatekeepers of lore or loremasters.

I've noticed over the three years since my return that some people adopt the position that if it first appears in the current movie timeline it a priori could not possibly have existed in the Old Republic timeline.

People are entitled to that interpretation of lore. I'm also entitled to the position that it is scientific hogwash. The initial appearance of:

1) Lando Calrissian does not preclude people of color existing in the Old Republic era - hence the existence of Tau;

2) Crusty old Jedi robes probably existed in the Old Republic era too, reverted, came back again;

3) Droids existed throughout -- I imagine the style changed. But the notion that the adorable little droid from Fallen Order could not have possibly existed in the Old Republic era is inane;

4) Just because we see Kylo Ren's vented light saber make its first appearance in the current move timeline, does not mean such light sabers did not exist in the Old Republic era;

5) Just b/c we see a Porg in the current movie timeline does not mean they did not exist in the Old Republic era.

Perhaps the above are false, but then I want to see lore-based evidence for the creation of, for example, Old Crusty Jedi Robes like ObiWan wore, or the spontaneous creation of Porgs as a species.

TL-DR: Lore elitists without any logical reasoning to back up their interpretation annoy me. I at least have science, logic, and reason on my side. And fer cryin' out loud, we are talking about the introduction of pets (or old Jedi robes, or style of light sabers) that will generate income for this game. This is a no-brainer.

Here, here.
I'm not a fan of Porgs but not because of any "they're against lore" crap; I hate them because I think they're ugly, however they were probably being eaten/befriended by star wars galaxy denizens long before they appeared in the film. I would not begrudge BW adding a Porg pet for those that want one though.
Also +1 for a baby yoda pet (again). Even the suggested closed pram pet would be good. After giving us the armours (especially Cara Dune's which I really like) you'd think they'd be all over a baby pet as a massive money spinner. Maybe they are saving it for Christmas...

This is the way.

We don't even have a name for Yoda's specie yet. Yoda might be a plant, like E.T.
