Welp. You know the deal. Pretty much anything Star Wars. The good, bad, and ugly. Mostly bad and ugly, though.

Originally, I just pulled things from the films, plus EU favorites.

First off, there's way too many Fanservice Species. Secondly, even in the cantina scene alone, there's how many one-off random aliens made from bits and pieces of other costumes, then given door-stopper writeups over the years as every single aspect of their "culture" (usually some kind of hat) was written into the EU.

But I'm thinking of keeping something like the Hutts... but including their ancient history. I like that angle. Essential Guide to Warfare is a pretty big influence. I'd like to focus on the less humanoid species; I'd really like to limit the "humans with rubber foreheads/body paint" angle... but I probably won't eliminate it entirely.

And that's if this idea even sees the light of day. It's neck-and-neck with SWVII and which one gets more written on it a particular hour depends on what's holding sway in my mind at the moment: certain plots dependent on SW elements, a desire for total creative freedom, whether laser guns or machine guns are cooler...

Well, when I think "aliens in Star Wars" I think of a few specific species: Twi'leks, Rodians, Wookiees and maybe a handful of others immediately spring to mind. But when taking Mass Effect as an example, there are a few species that are very prominent (I'm thinking Asari and Turian, maybe Salarian too) and others that feature less heavily (Drell, Elcor, Volus), so there's more room for adding species that we're less likely to see: maybe Chiss, Bith, Zabrak. It also depends upon the context that you're aiming for: like the Sith, while being extremely important in SW history, don't feature that much and are arguably less iconic than even some of SW's lesser species.

Mass Effect is a good model to go by, but they're more physically diverse than SW aliens. Sure, Wookiees and Gamorians are bigger and tougher, but Twi'leks, Zabrak, Chiss and Rodians are only really different aesthetically. I bring this up because I was about to suggest modelling the structure directly to Mass Effect's, loosely assigning each alien a SW counterpart, but I don't think it would work as well. You could still do that though - it's a nice system, because each Mass effect species has their own specific qualities. More difficult to apply to Star Wars, but possible, I think, at a stretch.

I'm sure some are. I mean, asari can be downright purple to a really pale blue. Surely Zeltrons get a little variation in there, too. I mean, a planet where everyone is the exact same shade of pink, or blue (Chiss), or green (Trek's Orion)... first, Unfortunately Implications, and second, boring.

I think those were posted earlier in the thread; definitely saw that before.

Honestly, I kinda disagree with his take. It seems... a little disjointed. The fundamentals are good (HAVE A MAIN CHARACTER; FOLLOW), but some of his tweaks and details are... ehhh.

His EP1 ideas were okay, but overall, and including 2 & 3, I didn't like it.

I still prefer my idea of how the PT should have gone. Anakin be Luke's age from ANH, and have the clone wars start in episode 1.

+1 And make the Clone Wars a minimum of ten years and have non-clone, non-droid, non-Jedi casualties.

And instead of telling me that Anakin is a hero and paragon of virtue when all I see is a whiny brat, how about actually showing some of that heroicism before having him spontaneously fall to the dark side with virtually no prompting?

...It still fits SW pretty well. Tython versus Korrib--sorry, MORIBAND.
