* The entire premise for the smuggler is made of CMOA. You are nothing but a normal person living in a universe that is full of people with superpowers that allow them to shot lighting out of their fingers or throw pieces of the ground at you with telekinetic powers, but you are still able to hold your ground against them. While other non-force users classes such as the Republic Troopers and Imperial Agents are also BadassNormal, they all have special training, equipment, and the backing of one of the two superpowers to help them level the playing field. For the smuggler however, you are a civilian that have nothing but your only skills, determination, wits, and luck, yet you are not only able to take on Jedi, Sith, and elite special forces in a fight, but actually WIN!

* One of the Inquisitor's first class quests involves learning who killed an acolyte. The witness is unwilling to give up the name because the culprit is the apprentice of a member of the Dark Council, and if he does the guy in charge of the interrogation is unwilling to take any action because of that. However, a sufficiently determined inquisitor who at this point is basically nothing in the Sith hierarchy can convince the interrogator that not at least protecting the witness would be cowardly and eventually get the witness shipped off-planet to be apprentice to a Sith on Dromund Kaas.

* This one is practically an EstablishingCharacterMoment. After Braden asks Mako to find you the nastiest bounty on Hutta to get Nem'ro's attention, you learn the target's a champion quick-draw artist. When you confront him, he also turns out to be an obnoxious braggart who boasts that he can draw so fast he'll shoot your ears off before you hear the blast. The Bounty Hunter then has a chance to demand, in a deep brooding voice, "''Show me''." The Bounty Hunter then draws their blaster so fast they blow his pistol out of his hand before he can shoot, and stand over him glaring triumphantly as he clutches his wrist. That's right: a small-time gun-for-hire nobody has even heard of effortlessly out-drawing a galaxy-acclaimed seven-time quick-draw champion. And that's just your first target in the game!

*** Jace also pulls a knife on a Sith. ''While being Force Lightninged''. It's possibly the single most badass moment in the whole ''franchise''.

* The assault on [[spoiler:the ''Justice'', an Imperial warship]] in the end of Chapter 1. You and your companion infiltrate the base pretending to be an Imperial, then you go around sabotaging the entire ship. After this, you have to fight your way to the bridge, then to engage [[spoiler:Harron Tavus himself. The battle ends with him surrendering, republic forces coming to secure the ship, and General Garza own congratulations for a well done mission.]] It's hard not to feel like a real badass in this game.

* The LAST mission of the third chapter, in which you take command of your own squad and two other squads of specialists (One of whom you had saved in a previous mission) to [[spoiler:storm the Bastion, a heavily-fortified fortress taken over by an Imperial General. Fighting through your route while hearing the others fight their way through, only to make it in, take down the General in a tough fight, and escape on a transport ship while Imperial bombers frantically try to stop ANYONE from escaping... is simply glorious.]]

* The forging of your first lightsaber. After questing through Tython and [[spoiler:defeating your Master's treacherous former Padawan]], you get a cool cutscene of your lightsaber being put together piece by piece accompanied by music from ''ReturnOfTheJedi''. It's a pretty awesome payoff. (For those who know where in the film that piece comes from, it's a little jarring in the scenic dissonance, but the music itself is still pretty badass.)
