Elf fan here.
Unless there is a chance to play as an Aasimar :P
Evil hidden everywhere
Evil has a chilling stare
Null and void of any care
Is where the answer lies
It does no good to beg or cry
It does no good to question why
It does no good it never dies
Evil never dies

Unless I'm going for a mod romance with a racial restriction, I play humans. I think I'm going to try a half-orc female next time, tho.

I mostly play elves, and if the classes are restricted I cheat in classes. I would have loved to play gnomes, but the avatars are the same as for males and it is a major turn off for me. I think I will have to go in one of this days and do a tiny mini-mod that will switch gnome female avatars on one of Moiness' ones. They will be different then and not bearded.

Elf, half elf.
Per me si va nella citta dolente.
Per me si va nell eterno dolore.
Per me si va tra la perduta gente...
Lasciate ogni speranza perduta che'entrate!

Human, mostly for wild dual-class  ::) (you can dual with kits :D)
But I do *love* halflings, unfortunately, no one wants to romance a halfling except Kelsey (Fortunately, I do like Kelsey)

Wait for Gavin. He's going to be available for Tutu soon (current completion estimate 85%). He'll romance any female, as long as they're good, have a 13 or better in charisma (he likes a woman who can take charge...) and a 10 or better in wisdom. He's also got a reputation requirement, but if you're roleplaying a good alignment, that won't be an issue.

 This is from the BG2 Romance Guide, available at Sorcerer's Net

 "Humans, Halfelves and Halflings can romance anyone of the four romancing NPCs depending on gender."
