Being able to play as an alien

I Hope they put more aliens that you could play as. For Example A Nautolan
Like KIT FISTO, Or a Zabrak, or even A Wookie jedi is possible might make it
more interesting, Who Knows.....

But it would limit things like the romance plotlines. What could be increased by using another species?

I think that choosing an alien specie to polay with would enhance the character generation. As I see it, choosing an alien would give you more and/or different hablities, points etc... Like this: rodians, good killers, kel dor, more force sensitive... so on.

But by now I like using aliens for the PC, it changes them a lot, and itīs funny.

But the majority of people in your part are humans. For example, in KotOR I we had 5 humans, and in KotOR II you would have like 6 I think humans (counting you). So most of the romance options are going to be humans. Ok, it could work, but only if you have a bunch of party members that are your species. In that case, it would mean different party members and a different story in parts to have to work out if you are an alien. Besides, the last two games we have had only humans, and that is just the way the games are. It isn't going to happen.

What does that have to do with it? If you are saying that they are humanoid and that means that you could romance with a human, no. First of all, a human and say a rodian together wouldn't be able to work, it is impossible for something like that to happen. And anyways, why would a human female want a rodian male?

I vote no for being an alien, it would limit the romance options and personally I don't want to live through Kotor 3 with green skin

I think it would be interesting. Maybe only a few alien races. Seems like the Twi-leks are attractive enough.

Or, maybe, by being a certain race you get no romance, or an NPC somewhere in the game could launch you on a romance sidequest, but only if you are of a certain race...other races would be able to talk to the NPC. It seems like they could put in an extra 5 or 6 NPC's (not party members) that can stimulate romance plots if you are of a certain race (i.e. one for each race that isn't human)

The definition of a species, in a broad sense, is one that cannot mate with the other. Therefore, an alien and a human wouldn't work. Saying this, wouldn't it be alot better if more party members were aliens of different sorts ?

Yes, but all the same there has always been some romance in Star Wars and in games, almost always somebody falls in love with someone else. Being some wierd alien guy wouldn't work for this, and it might cause there to be a need for multiple storylines depending on what type of alien you were. And some things wouldn't work, different parts of the story that would make it necessary for a human.

I think you can change your appearence with KSE, can't you? And I am not trying to get you to trash your idea, I just don't agree with you, if that is why you asked me if it was a good enough compromise.

I think some alien options would be okay. Twi'lek for sure, maybe Zabrak, but I would keep it to the most human looking. I can't stand the idea of a Wookie Jedi.

Actually I didn't find it tiring at all. And what in the world is "change is good, to change is to learn, to learn grants you great power" comment? We are talking about a game here Beast. There is no need for change at this point in that area.

You sir, are trying to hold a theory to all principals and possibilities, this is defunct in essence and that makes you slightly crazy, also

"I know But sometimes you have to step outside the norm to get results which means we as humans have to be adaptable to change cause ya never know they may go that way......"

this was ridiculously off topic, Mr. Hypocrisy...

Then why would you care if there were extra options for the rest of us? If you're going to play as human anyway, why bother complaining about having species options.

I would definitely try a Zabrak character at least once. And just because someone doesn't like the idea of a certain species being a jedi doesn't mean that's the same opinion as everyone else.

The number one point here is they would be OPTIONAL, not mandatory. So what's the big deal?

And as far as the romance thing goes... anyone ever watch Farscape or the original Star Trek?

List if Cross-Species Couples
-Chiana and D'Argo (Farscape)
-Crichton and Aeryn (Farscape)
-Stark and Zhaan (Farscape)
-Spock's parents (Star Trek)
-over half the women Kirk seduced (Star Trek)
-if I were a real jerk I'd do triple this list.

My point being why should it matter if your PC is a different species? This is romance we're talking about, not sex/procreation. Just cause twi'leks and bothans can't have kids doesn't mean your main char can't be a bothan! It's just a game people.

I am going on what is probable and what they have been doing for that last two games. If you consider that to be a closed mind, then you must think that a open mind means you believe everything and anything will happen. -->

Person: "Hey, why don't we play in an alternate universe of Star Wars for KotOR III, and have to get back."
Person 2: "No, that would not work."
Person: "You must have a closed mind."

And of course, it is not a sex game, but why would a character want a Rodian/whatever anyways?

Better refrase KOTOR Universe Because in Star Wars universe there are Alien Jedis and most of them seem more powerful than the humans , it is just all the stories are based around us humans

I for one would like to be able to play as something other than human. And I see no harm in interspecies romance.
