Pick what you like. Play what you like.
This...There is no reason you can't play any character (Canon or Alien) you want to/enjoy playing, you are not "gimped" in any way by their traits.
Actually, thinking about it a little more, with the OPs idea, I would be more inclined to play a race I didn't care for (not a good thing) because of their better (to me) traits. I don't want to have to think about "gee, did I pick a good race to play? or "I have to play that race if I want all those great perks"
