Droids = as playable race/class

We have cyborgs and all manner of alien species as playable, while each faction has 8 classes. It is time to give players both new playable species, and a new class with its own storyline. Obviously, blindingly obviously, droids are perfectly adaptable to this. Faction neutral, fresh off the production line, or found on a scrap heap and patched up, the potential for a story is boundless, both serious and fun.

 

What would a droid class look like? There are several styles of Droid in game already, but clearly something that emphasised their retro electro-mechanical look.

 

ideas? opinon?

They've already stated that they are not going to add any new Classes or Individualized Class Story Chapters to the Game. Also, Droids would exactly work as there are toooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo many Variations in the SWU to use. How would they go about determining what Combat Droids (that can speak Basic) are able to be used and what ones can't? Also post Creation, there wouldn't be any way to show that your Droid Character is different from the other Droid Character as they Droid's Armor Pieces don't change their Appearances.

 

Another thing, how would the Droid Classes be able to be any of the Force Using Classes? Sure, you could say that they have special Components built in to do Lightning, a special Turbine Component to throw stones. However, how would you explain lifting pieces of junk out of the ground and then hurling said piece at the opponent (Consular)? And then you also have to figure out what would be the Emote/Ability that is tied to being a Droid Species.
