Thanks Tom!
But my idea did'nt got to the extent of randomly created topology (which is interesting), but more like, let's say, a generator based on three classes of places (for example): hallways, rooms and stairways, which are pre-modelled to be "interesting". What changes from one generation to another is:
a) the amount of places (rooms, hallways and stairways), which defines the size of the map
b) where the human and alien base are placed by default (for example it's always in a room, but where?)

In my point of view, it would fell like playing any other map, without knowing where the enemy spawns are, or even the overall size of the map

This is an interesting but not easy to implement idea! However concerning your b) it seems to correspond to a randomization of the already existing map layouts system.

In fact, I haven't thought of randomizing the base layout - the position of the structures in relation to each other within the base.
the position of the base in "b)" is relative to the whole map, e.g if a random map is created with 10 rooms, in which of these 10 rooms the two bases will be placed?

We already have aliens with teeth (tyrant), with mandibles (marauder), why not have an alien with a beak?
