* AlliterativeName: One of the bounties you can catch in the second level is named Bobot Beka.



* DisproportionateRetribution:
** One of the bounties in the third level, Gabo the Wicked, is wanted either alive or dead by the Republic Security Force--for the petty crimes of indecent exposure and illegal hologram distribution. Another one, Magro Slim, is wanted either alive or even dead by Rozatta for destroying restrooms on her station.



* DualWielding: Komari Vosa.

to:

* DualWielding: Komari Vosa.Vosa wields two lightsabers at once when you fight her.
* EasterEgg: One of the bounties in the second level, an Ugnaught named Onicrop K'Cin, is the name of Lucasarts employee Nick Porcino spelled backwards. The third bounty you can capture in the second level, And-Yees, is named after the lead tester of the game.



* GameplayAndStoryIntegration: In the final boss battle, it's explicitly ''impossible'' to collect the bounty on Vosa using the traditional bounty-hunting feature (she automatically break free from your whipcord, and the game triggers a cutscene when you kill her), and the game simply orders you to kill her in battle. Still, if you take the time to ID-scan her, the scanning mechanic brings up a description of the bounty that started the game's story. There's no reason to do this, but it fits with previously established plot points.

** It is likewise impossible to actually collect the bounty on Meeko in the first few stages--you can tag him, but it's absolutely impossible to catch him on foot due to the games scripting. The hovercraft he steals is immune to your blasters as well. You have to destroy his starship at the end of the third stage to catch him in-story. However, you ''can'' catch him dead or alive in the second stage of Oovo IV (although you'll get a ''lot'' of credits if you capture him dead).

* SdrawkcabName: One of the bounties in the second level, an Ugnaught named Onicrop K'Cin, is a reversal of the name of Lucasarts employee Nick Porcino, thrown in as an in-joke.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: One of the bounties you can catch in the second level, the protocol droid TC-9D0, is wanted by the special branch of the Senatorial Guard for having "sensitive information" about the corrupt Twi'lek Senator Connus Trell, who plays a role in the games sixth level.

* SingleBiomePlanet: Distinctly averted with Malastare. Despite being depicted as a desolate wasteland like planet in games like ''Star Wars Racer'', the game has you play through one of the lush jungle regions of the world. The level description even acknowledges that the planet has more than one environment to it.

* GoodOldFisticuffs: Jango's EmergencyWeapon.

to:

* GoodOldFisticuffs: Jango's EmergencyWeapon. Despite the short range and lack of lock-on, this attack is surprisingly useful in close quarter combat--one or two hooks can kill an enemy just as quickly, if not faster, than Jango's blasters.

* KingMook: The giant droid you fight in the hanger bay of Oovo IV, which is as large as a starship, armed with laser cannons and three rocket launchers.

** Rosatta mentions that she knows a toydarian junk dealer on Tatooine, obviously referring to Watto.

* AntiFrustrationFeatures: The game is hard enough as it is, so the game throws you a bone here and there. For example, if you complete one part of an objective (i.e. disabling a shield generator during "The Escape") you don't have to do it all over again or fight the enemies again if you die and respawn at the last checkpoint.
** The centerpiece of "The Escape" is a very tall column with multiple platforms over a bottomless pit. The developers knew just how brutal it would be to traverse it with your bare jetpack, so there are several infinitely respawning power-ups for your jetpack scattered about, which allow you to fly for much longer than usual.
