BioWare’s Sean Dahlberg confirmed today via forum post that non-human races will be playable. Most of us already assumed as much, but there were a few people around worrying about the lack of non-human characters shown so far. These people may now officially chillax. “You will be able to play other species, we just [...]

Nothing I was worried about, it will be intresting to see how many different races you can choose from

If Bioware doesn't make Twi'leks playable I for one would be disappointed. o_Q

That would be very game breaking for me.

It will be interesting to see which are available and if any are limited to which class they can be.

Bio, Bio, shining white,
In the forests of the night,
What authorial hand or eye,
Could frame such matchless gimmickry?

I'm not a space doctor, but I'm pretty sure choosing races is conventional in MMO's.

Twi'leks have to be strippers.

This is going to be a great game!

For some reason, I want to play as a male Togruta, or less questionably, a female Twi'lek. Though, I'll more likely stick to human. At least for my Smuggler main.

Eh, they ain't always so hot, Ahsoka is just more human looking than usual. Look at Shaak Ti's huge beady eyes, not that hot. :p

Ahsoka is like 14 GDI! :p but Shaak Ti is a fine specimen imo:naughty:

Is this really a surprise? This is Star Wars. I'd be surprised if such a thing were not happening.

Well we've been shown nothing but human players, so many of us were starting to get our hopes down about the possibility of playing non-humans. Plus there's the difficulties of fully voicing a non-Basic speaking species, without sounding highly repetitive(I'm looking at you, Wookies and Twi'lek who speak all of 3 audible phrases for all of the Huttese language in KotOR).

I'm planning on being a Twi'lek, but not a stipper :p

>.> And here I was looking at her huge something else's.....

Also, something cannot both be "huge" and "beady".

Got to love those Togrutan chicks. :p

It definitely makes up for all those years of being force to play a human in nearly every Star Wars game.

I can't wait to find out what species will be available. I'm still not sure about TOR, but extra species definitely makes it more interesting.

They're very big, and solid black, which makes them look beady like an insect's eyes. That's how it's both. I meant beady in terms of being solid black, not small.

I bet one of the races playable will be Mirialan, why do I come to this conclusion? Because on The Old Republic we find this important figure called Hylo Visz, and other than that one of the characters of the "The Old Republic" new comic "Threat of Peace Act" is a Mirialan as well and he plays a important role. My conclusion we will be able to play Mirialan's which are VERY cool :D

I dunno, I'll probably play human jedi, human trooper, and a rodian smuggler.
The reason for this is Twi'leks are cool, but I'm pretty sure the head tails won't be animated, so I'm not intrested in jumping around with it staying exactly in place, that, and in case you haven't noticed, male Twi'leks are very.
VERY.
Ugly, I mean, just look at a few of them:

http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/starwars/images/thumb/e/e0/Zhar.jpg/250px-Zhar.jpg
Eugh.
I also don't want to be a Wookiee, because I'd rather not have my character barking at me when I try to fight something I can't or don't have any inventory space.
Kel Dor sound pretty cool, I might try one if they include them in the game.

Orn Free Taa is terribly obese. You might as well say humans are ugly after seeing a really fat guy. Bib Fortuna is ugly, so use my previous human example but after seeing an ugly guy. The last one is from KotOR, and looks uncanny valley. Male Twi'leks in SWG look okay.
