    Favorites:
    Ortolans: They're basically cute little blue elephant-people, which is cool because I like elephants.
    Mon Cala: Their design and underwater nature is pretty cool.
    Skakoans: I like how mysterious and robotic they are and how they've only been seen unmasked once.

    These ones were just off the top of my head; I have a lot more. I don't really have any least favorite species in particular either.

    Least Favourite: Tusken Raiders, because they still scare the living cr4p out of me at the age of 31. Same goes for the...devil things?! Can't remember the name on the top of my head.

    @Ewok Poet, I'm guessing you're thinking of Devaronians.

    I like Duros for their classic flying saucer alien look, and for the background from the WEG sourcebooks.

    Jar Jar and Boss Nass are horrible characters, but I like the other Gungans.

    I have no interest in most of the freaks in Jabba's palace; the designers were trying too hard to make ugly monsters for the good guys to kill, IMO.

    I can't stand Devaronians. Twileks are quite cool. I was going to say the Dathomir-ians, but the witches aren't actually from Dathomir, are they?

    Yup. Wouldn't want to read about them or see a feature with them in the middle of the night. Yikes.

    Favorite: Wookiees

    Least: Neimoidians (Seriously, how has nobody mentioned them? Even though some may hate the Gungans, at least the Gungans have honor and courage. Neimoidians are the only species that in the saga that have NO redeeming value in my eyes. They're greedy, cowardly, not badass at all, and stupid)

    Least would probably be Ugnaughts. I find it creepy when they play keepy off with Threepio's body parts.

    Favorite: The Yodas (or what they are actually called?). I find Yoda probably the most successful alien creation in any films. Not only was he perfect for conveying that size is not all in ESB by his actions, his brain-shaped forehead visually hints at a cerebral potential even if one is inclined to dismiss him(or his fellow Yodas) on basis of his size. Even the way his long ears emote is deeply original. Ways his ears will twitch will indicate reflection, suspicion or probing on the Force. The long-eared brain-forehead three fingered/toed clawed small sized combination is as congruent as one can get in alien making me thinks(especially that three fingers/toes per hand makes sense for a petite individual). If some insist on attributing advantages on the physical however, his claws compensate during fighting and green is ideal for camouflage.

    Least favorite: Gungans. It's not so much that I find them aesthetically unpleasing(although I can't say that I find the fish/horse mixture visually appealing) but that the addition of spitting whilst shaking their heads much like gurgling babies to express approval is a tad too uncivilised to me. It downgrades them to a ridiculous level of baby behavior and thus I cannot take them seriously as a society living amongst Naboo civilians. I also dislike the fact that it was decided to make them a primitive nation, like the Tuskens on Tatooine. Whilst I didn't mind that Tuskens were represented as a primitive group with cultural tribal violence(with Hutts ruling Tatooine in lawfulness, it is pretty much expected that most groups would take on less than ideal/civilized behavior to survive. I would actually be quicker to point my fingers at Hutts & co 'leading' Tatooine into a state of disarray, every other group being a result of cultural distrust & chaotic living.)

    I just thought it was a bit insulting that basically every primitive group in SW is presented in a less than flattering way. Liked the Ewoks in ROTJ just fine contrary to most people, but why not go a step further in TPM and present the Gungans as dignified AND intelligent to illustrate that no, primitive groups are not in any way inferior to colonial groups/humanoids? I am not a such fan of the 'Meesa and thisa' way of speaking, but it's something I can ignore as an attempt to invent a dialect variation. The spitting not so much.
