It seems like so many of the larger creatures are fish, reptiles or amphibians. Yeah, I know we got a few: Bantha, Nexu, Eepoie (I think), Shaak. But the bulk of them are not!!!!!

I'm not including Wookiees and Ewoks in this as they are clearly above the level of creature to which I am referring.

What's up with this? Anyone want to comment? :cross-eye

Or, the largest planet in the galaxy is called R'ming'taan, ruled by Lady Epilady and her spouse, Lord Niick Blayde.

They should have Rocket Raccoon from the Marvel Universe crossover. *Sagenods*

Forgot to name it, but that's one of the few.

It seems like we have rancors and fambaas all of those little scampering things, but there are so few furry creatures. I get that fur/hair is tough to do via CGI, but maybe we could have had "some" that were flesh and blood creatures dressed up a la the bantha. Just sayin'.

Kabe, Muftak, and Jaxxon should have had larger roles.

Well, if they had larger roles, you'd most likely see their homeworld. Their planets would be full of furry animals because every planet in the galaxy has a theme.

I was thinking more in terms of the wildlife and beasts of burden rather than more intelligent beings. I'm feeling you, but I was looking at the creatures that those sorts of creatures would ride, use as farm animals or even encounter in the wild.

Whatever noble steed Jaxxon would ride sounds awesome.

Course, it's probably just a naked man with a saddle.

I was thinking more like a giant Guinea Pig or something long those lines. LOL

Some people pay good money to travel that way. It costs a little extra, but it's worth it.
