    Most of the aliens in Star Wars are either humanoid or are bipedal.

    So what about all the non-humans and non-bipedals? From starfighters to even chairs, the galaxy does not seem to accomodate aliens that aren't humanoid or bipedal. How is a lamproid supposed to pilot a starfighter?

    It would seem as if it is a benefit if you are a biped/humanoid. And you are at a disadvantage if you are not.

    I guess when they make aliens, they make them so that they at least have a recognizable head on top, any number of arms and legs, and a torso, so that they look at least a little reminiscent of a human. This would make a someone connect more with the character. You have to admit, it's not easy to connect with a Lamproid ya know?

    (And yes, I know it is said that humans were the most common species in the galaxy...)

    Survival of the fittest...

    Besides, Lamproids look like sock puppets. Scatter too many around & you'll lose the audience.

    The straight alignment of bipedals has been shown to be a more efficient form of movement, I think.
    (Alignment: how legs are attached to bodies. Lizard legs come straight out, then bend down, forming a right angle. Dinosaur legs go straight down, like human ones. The dinosaur system is better.)
