Based on yesterday's announcement of The Old Republic's first non-human race, MMORPG.com's Michael Bitton kicks off a series that examines what some of the other possibilities might be.
Yesterday saw the unveiling of the first playable species to be featured in Star Wars: The Old Republic: the Rattataki. You might be asking yourself, “Rattawhatti?” even if you’ve seen all the movies and read a few of the Expanded Universe books. The Rattataki are a race of bald-headed alabaster skinned humanoids whose most notable example is Asajj Ventress from Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
For Star Wars fans, I’d argue this is a fairly odd and obscure choice to include in the game as a playable race and it has given me some pause, as I can’t think of any reason to include the race other than to tie-in to the new-ish Clone Wars series and film, however, that is neither here nor there, so let’s take a look at some of the races we’d like to see in Star Wars: The Old Republic and examine their likelihood of appearing within the game.
