* The Republic-side answer to that? ''Assault on Korriban.'' There is something ''very'' satisfying about charging into the very corrupted, black heart of the Sith and laying waste to everything you can find. If you pick the light-side option, you can even relieve them of their slaves while you're at it. And then, you have your own turn at Tython, liberating it back from the Sith's attack, which is even more satisfying as a Jedi.

** In addition, what the Consular has done was considered epic enough that he was allowed to create a holocron of himself describing what happened in the Jedi Archives, capping off Act 1.

* The entire Republic Corellian campaign, across all four classes, which [[spoiler: ends with the Empire thrown back from the Core Worlds, having lost seemingly half the Dark Council and 10% of its ''entire military strength'']]. Talk about AwakeningTheSleepingGiant.

* The entire Republic Corellian campaign, across all four classes, which [[spoiler: ends with the Empire thrown back from the Core Worlds, having lost seemingly half the Dark Council and 10% of its ''entire military strength'']]. Talk about AwakeningTheSleepingGiant. And not just that, the running theme in the Republic Corellia arc is that, while the Corellian Council was content to sell their people to the Empire, the ''people'' of Corellia are absolutely, completely loyal, and wage a very successful resistance that gives the Republic their chance to reclaim the planet. In the span of a couple months, the Republic goes from suffering a shocking route in one of their greatest planets to scoring a decisive and glorious victory, turning the tide of the entire war and bolstering morale across the Galaxy, all because the common citizenry had faith in their leadership, and delivered when they needed them most. After an entire game of hearing characters lambasting the Republic for being weak and ineffectual, Corellia proves they still have it in them to fight the good fight.

* Victory over the [[spoiler: Emperor. Not only you retaliate for fellow Jedi Masters who got [[MindRaped]] on your last attempt to fight him, not only you cripple the Sith Empire by taking down its leader, messiah and creator — ''you succeed where Revan, Malak and Exile failed''.]] It gets subverted when [[spoiler: you find out that Emperor still exists as a Force spirit]], but Darth Marr muses that you might have given him the strongest beating in his entire existence.

* The whole plot of Act 1. You're just a young Padawan — a Padawan who [[spolier: defeats ''six'' Jedi Masters along with a Sith Lord and snaps them out of insanity by sacrificing his/her own lifeforce. ]]



* Qyzen Fess gets one at the end of his companion quest. [[spoiler:After triumphing over a corrupt Clan-Leader-to-be named Veneb, he's appointed the ''leader'' of Veneb's former clan.]]
* Zenith gets one in his companion quest, either through Light Side ''or'' Dark Side methods. He triumphs over corrupt political rivals and wins the election.



* For that matter, the attack on the ''Javelin.'' The Rift Alliance fleet charges in with the whole shebang - Balmorran militia, Voss commandos, Esh-Kha Warriors. Your ''companion characters'' are put in charge of entire strike teams. Too bad the whole thing turns out to be a trap, but if you had Tharan black out their communications, your troops still make their getaway and the Imperial trap ends up taking out most of ''[[HoistByTheirOwnPetard their]]'' fleet instead.
** Of course, unless you took that option (with no indication of needing to take it at the time) it turns into a ShaggyDogStory.

* Creating your lightsaber at the Forge on Tython.
* Qyzen seeing your prowess in battle against the man who managed to get the drop on him, and him being so awed by this that he believes you're an avatar (Herald) of his goddess, The Scorekeeper. You just made your first lightsaber, and haven't even graduated from Padawan. You're a small, squishy human (or humanoid). And he's old friends with your master. ''You managed to impress him more than your own master has.''

** Kira's Moment of Awesome is even ''more'' so if you played through the Consular's story. [[spoiler: Kira managed a feat that not even a ''senior Jedi Council member'' was able to accomplish: kick "daddy" Emperor to the curb for good.]]

* Darth Marr telling Emperor Valkorian exactly where he can shove it when he orders him to KneelBeforeZod, then breaking out of his handcuffs and attacking the guards. [[spoiler:Truly a DyingMomentOfAwesome.]]

* Darth Marr telling finally standing face-to-face with Valkorion, the Emperor Valkorian exactly where he can shove it when he orders who ALREADY had an Empire that worshiped him a a living god, and chose to KneelBeforeZod, abandon it, leaving it to Marr to keep it together against most of the Dark Council. The Emperor who turned against his own, consuming all life on one of richest worlds in Sith history. The Emperor, who viewed his 1300-old Empire as nothing more than a distraction to a side-project "mere" couple of hundreds of years in the making. The HumanoidAbomination who moves his consciousness at will and eats planets offers to Marr to spare his life and KneelBeforeZod. What does Marr do? He gives him a ShutUpHannibal, then breaking breakes out of his handcuffs and attacking attacks the guards.guards with their own weapons. [[spoiler:Truly a DyingMomentOfAwesome.]]

* When the Outlander and Darth Marr realize that their ship is outmatched and going to be destroyed by the Eternal Fleet, they can choose make their exit by [[RammingAlwaysWorks ramming it]] [[DefiantToTheEnd into one of the enemy ships]] [[TakingYouWithMe in hopes of bringing as many with them as they can]]. Bonus awesome points for ''surviving'' the collision.



* If the Outlander loses the Chapter 8 fight against Arcann [[spoiler:due to not using Valkorian's powers]], they [[spoiler:get ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice]]. The awesome comes from two things: one, [[spoiler:Koth pulling a BigDamnHeroes and shooting Arcann out a window (though he survives)]], and two, the Outlander [[spoiler:getting back up and fighting through the army standing between them and freedom, despite the, you know, hole in their stomach.]] Koth is even ''amazed'' that they could basically shrug off what is almost always a fatal wound in Star Wars.

** It's pretty awesome if they win it, too. [[spoiler:They rise up, glowing with Valkorion's power, and unleash a ''giant storm of lightning'' at Arcann that blows out one of the windows and utterly ''destroys'' the ships nearby that were unfortunate enough to get caught in it. Arcann struggles against it, snarling that he won't lose…so the Outlander amps it up, completely blasting him out the window (though again, he survives).]]
