The Battle Of Sasquatch was a major turning point for the Republic during the Clone Wars, and led directly into the Outer Rim Sieges. As far as the name goes, the Sasquoix, the native species of the planet, petitioned the Galactic Senate to change their name to "Sasquatch!", with the added exclamation point. They felt this may help boost their tourism revenue. The petition was denied, but the stunt did get their name out there. No one visited though.
Just the Sasquoix.
