One of my favourite characters from back in the day playing WEGs version of Star Wars was a Jawa with an unpronounceable name that my compatriots nick named Bill. I had a blast playing the little mechanic who tinkered his way through adventures building up an impressive collection of modified Droids while jazzing up our ride on his off time. He made for a half decent spy as well when he hollowed out an R2 unit, got inside and drove it around using a little control unit. He was not much in a straight up fight but that was what the other PCs were for!
I look forward to seeing their treatment in the game then and hope it comes sooner than later!
