We haven't seen a list of all the races/species available yet, but assuming they will have most of the obvious races/species available, which will you choose?

I'm a bit of a traditionalist so I'm leaning toward human (as a Sith Inquisitor), but I'm also interested in potentially choosing to be a Kel Dor (like Plo Koon) or Nautolan (like Kit Fisto). If it's available, I would probably choose Rakata (the Builders) over human.

I'm planning on playing a smuggler, and I'll most likely play as either a male human (for that classic Han Solo archetype), a male Togruta (probably to stand out more than anything), or a female Twi'lek (why not?).

... or a female Twi'lek (why not?).

Nice choice - but using that line of reasoning, I'd choose a Zeltron (http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Zeltron) instead.

I always Play Human Male where possible, and always try to make him look like myself, just what I've always done :) even though kotOR is my favorite game ever I've never played the female storyline lol :o

I'm with you adamqd - I've only played male humans before, and I also try to make them look like myself. I once started K2 TSL as a female, just to get the canon side of the story, but never got very far into the game. I would like to finish it out but haven't found the time/motivation to do it.

I think the only way I wouldn't choose human for TOR is if Rakata was available. For some reason I find their history extremely interesting, and I'm intrigued by the idea of being something like the only Rakata to exist with remaining force ability.

Have you ever seen a blue Zeltron? Now guess which colour my lightsaber blade would be if I were to play a Jedi Knight/Consular.

I've seen a Zeltron named (Deliah) Blue...

If I decide to play, I'd definitely be a Human male as a Trooper or Smuggler.

I would provably choose Human like I normally do, but it would be cool to play as a Twi'lek or Cerean (Ki Adi Mundi style). and I would provably be a Sith Warrior.

Interesting to see that most people have said human so far - it's what I also prefer, but I expected to be in the minority.

Take away the Togruta and I was thinking the same thing for my smuggler.

Anything that is not a human.

If I knew the races I would give you a more specific answer, however.

I want to play as a sarlaac. I don't care if that was an April Fools joke, I want my sarlaac-mounted superlaser! :lol:

Failing that...I can't really say with any certainty without the list, but probably a human Sith Inquisitor.

Have you ever seen a blue Zeltron?

I've seen numerous zeltrons but no blue. Purple Luxa in TSL, Delilah Blue has reddish pink skin, and one Zeltron merc whom Mace Windu had a run in with had dark to Caucasian skin with inhuman all-black eyes.

:mon: Mon Cal Trooper for the win. :thmbup1:

Ithorian would also look pretty awesome decked out in armor :D

It will all depend on what I can make a decent face out of, but since I play most games as a female (find it easier to be good as a female PC) Iíll most likely choice a wood elf Twiílek. Of the classes Iíve seen, Smuggle or Bounty Hunter would be the most appealing to me.

Didn't even know they had Mon Calamari...but that would be pretty awesome too.

We don't really know any of the races/species available yet.. This is all speculation.

Ahhhhh okay. If only they'd make nemoidians...that'd be my top choice.

This is a long shot, but first preference for me is Gotal. Very close second is Arcona. If neither of these are choices, then it would definitely be Duros.

Don't know why, but I feel drawn to the less represented species. Hope a few more are dragged into the limelight in this game, we need some serious diversity for that true Star Wars flavour.

Human's my first choice. But if it's available, I wouldn't mind trying out a Duros, Wookiee, Rodian and Bothan.

Depending on how good the beards/stubble look on humans I may choose human or Trandoshan (I hope)

^Trust me, facial hair will look even worse on Trandos. o_Q

Hopefully they offer a wider array of customization for the MMO as opposed to what they had in the KOTOR series. The set face only selection is severly outdated.

The set face only selection is severly outdated.I believe basically what they've said for facial customization is that they will have sliders for different parts of the face, but rather than being a "fluid" slider there will be (I believe) 3 settings for each.

My first choice would be Arkanian, if not Sephi, but if none of those are available then i'll choose a human male, and of course modded as close to me as possible. Not sure if i'll be a Consular or a Knight yet. Still need a bit more info.

I would play as they Blainn, but since every freaking body is gonna play as 'em, I'll go with... Half-orc. Mostly Terran but achievements will make me play everything

Non-human, but that depends on what races are available, what colors you can pick from, and what physical adjustments you can do to them. If we're all just gonna be cookie-cutter shapes then that's disappointing but not a huge deal. Still, twi'leks have been done to death but I'm sure I'll make one, though assuming we get some other options, I'll give 'em all a try. If we get Togruta though as I think we will, that'll be my first one.

I'll probably play a human female, as aesthetically pleasing as possible. Yes, I'm a guy. I just prefer to stare at a girl's butt all day rather than a guy's.

I heard a rumor that you can play as a cyborg. If that is true, I'm totally going for that.

Either Human, Zeltron, Zabrak, or Codru-Ji (if ever made available)

Confirmed races I'd be interested in: Sith Pureblood, Zabrak, Miraluka, and Chiss. Other races I'd love to see: Muun, Pau'an, Kel'dor, Nikto.

Since I'm playing a Sith aligned character with my friends, I'll probably end up choosing Zabrak (SI) or Sith Pureblood (SW.)
