While working on the TOR Fashion Guild Ship, Aesthetic, it’s been very apparent we don’t have enough personnel decorations. When Strongholds first launched, there were a few standard NPCs you could buy for Cartel Market Certificates, like the Bartender, Waitress, and Twi’lek Dancers. These are wonderful, but using the exact same NPCs in one room begins to look a bit suspicious. And Cartel packs no longer drop Certificates, so it’s getting to be very difficult to obtain them anymore.
I went through the beginning of The Esseles and grabbed some screenshots of NPCs that would be nice to have:
Random NPCs using tools
NPCs playing games
Dead NPCs and droids
Seated NPCs interacting with consoles
Walking NPCs in charge
NPCs leaning on objects
Which standard NPCs would you like to see?

Various kinds of battle droids would be very nice. Currently the only choice are the difficult to find/expensive deactivated skytroopers, blaster and the somewhat ugly prefab droids. I’d like to see the Imperial and Republic droids, as seen in game as HK customisations, plus the Imperial T4-1D customisation made into NPCs.
The Republic side could also use more NPCs of the soldier variety, currently the Imperial side has much more options.

IMO they could add some sort of function to switch what the existing NPC decos are doing. For example, you have the imperial and republic troopers that are standing to attention. What if you could change what they were doing? Make them pace around, or point at something, or any of the other things you see NPCs doing on the planets. In other words, allow us to make them interact with each other.
