See, that's exactly the problem though. If you pick Gorn you don't get a Gorn, you get a character that plays exactly like everything else. If you pick Betazoid you don't get a Betazoid, you get a character that plays exactly like everything else.
There is no incentive to pick the more extreme canon races because their gameplay experience in no way reflects what you'd expect of them, and the less extreme ones still aren't a good choice over simply making an alien character that focuses all traits onto a single purpose.
