Well, alien species or not, human should certainly still be an option, and I'm confident it will be in any Star Wars CRPG. It has been so far, IIRC, so no problem there. I just think we need to have the option of other species in addition to humans. But I would agree that it would disappointing if you suddenly cannot play a human. I like the option, but I might quite well play as human too. I certainly did in Jedi Academy...
