Six movies (seven if you count the CW movie, I do) to pick from, countless different alien species seen on screen, which do you like the least?

Gungans. Not one of them was enjoyable. They were just for sillies and giggles and its just not that cool to me.

I don't mind Gungans as a whole, it's just Jar Jar that makes me raise a few eyebrows.

But what about this ridiculous creature? A Toong.
Look at this and tell me he wasn't just included to make the youngest kids laugh:

Look mommy, it's Humpty Dumpty!

Toongs are definitely retarded and Ben Quadrinaros might be the stupidest character in all seven SW movies. Sorrry, K Newman, but he's one of the few characters I hope never shows up on CW, nor any other of his species.

I'm with Ree'dius. The Gungans weren't that bad actually (excluding Jar-Jar!) and the Toongs are probably the worst.

Pa'lowick. I wish the blaster backfired on Sy Snootles.

The Pa'lowick are actually my second worst SW species. Especially when they are depicted with tusks at the bottom of their trunk (even though the existance of those has been explained away).

Excactly! I'm really hoping everybody at Lucas' is forgetting about this species completely and that we'll never see them again. (except for the TPM 3D release next year, I'll guess we'll have to then)

actually I was kinda hoping that the 3-D release would also be a special edition version in which Quadrinaros is removed altogether

That would be like a dream come true! But I'm afraid we're stuck with him...

Or we could get a new scene with some singing Toongs, a whole big dance number to entertain Jabba in his lofty box seat... Embarassed

Yeah, I'm with Pete on this, Pa'lowick was the worst species in the six films with that awful special edition music scene.

Otherwise I'd be looking at a three way tie between Toongs, Troigs, and Xextos.

I like the Xextos!!! I thought Gasgano was kinda cool, his pod was my favorite in the podracer game

I don't have anything against the Xexto either, but yeah, Darth Skuldren, those Triogs are pretty messed up too.
Again, they seem to only be included to make the smallest children laugh. Which is not a bad thing per se, but they didn't have to make these creatures so lame or flat out stupid looking.

Wookiees.

It's an entire race of Bigfoot. And Bigfoot is lame.

Once again, Zero wishes to be burned at the stake. I have yet to understand it.

What about Roos Tarpals? He was quite serious. Well, apart from that 'ouch time' comment. And competent, and charged with keeping Jar Jar safe, so you have to feel some sympathy for the guy.
