* VillainPedigree: To match the SerialEscalation above, the villains get much more detestable, not to mention rich. [[VideoGame/StarWarsStarfighter The first game]] saw you fighting the Trade Federation in a rather "clean" war, with the bad guys merely trying to annex Naboo and keep the civilians alive. The nameless band of mercenaries they hired, though cold and jeering, saw you as a WorthyOpponent. ''Jedi Starfighter'' has you fighting [[PrivateMilitaryContractor Sabaoth Squadron]], whose wartime tactics boil down to "[[CompleteMonster let's drop a bunch of illegal chemical weapons on people who may or may not be able to defend themselves]] [[ForTheEvulz for a laugh]]."

* EscortMission: About half the game is nominally an escort mission in some form, but you really only start feeling the pressure in mission 11, where you have to escort a troop transport through a gauntlet of missile launching enemies.



* FiveFiveFive The outtakes feature Mace advertising a Jedi Starfighter plane rental with the number 1-555-FLY-JEDI.

* MirrorBoss: Lieutenant Bella, who serves as FinalBoss for Nym, flies in a slow but sturdy heavy bomber with laser cannons and cluster missiles to match the ''Havoc'''s own.



** In the first game, you couldn't damage landers, and there was only one capital ship in the final level. In this game, you destroy a Trade Federation lander in the first level, several over the course of the game, and you encounter and destroy several capital ships, including three in the last level alone.

* ArcWelding: Apparently, the reason why [[Film/AttackOfTheClones the Trade Federation's droid factories are on Geonosis]] is because [[VideoGame/StarWarsStarfighter their main droid production facility on Eos was destroyed]].



* TheProudElite[=/=]MegaCorp: Adi hangs a lampshade over the [[Characters/StarWarsSeparatistAlliance Separatist Alliance]] being comprised of rich bigwigs like the Commerce Guild and the [=InterGalactic=] Banking Clan. Taken UpToEleven with the Sabaoth Squadron PMC, the vile power-hungry BigBad faction who are rich enough to buy their own mercenary ''fleet'' and whose name translates (from real-life Hebrew) to "hosts of heaven".

** In the first game, all you did was destroy a droid factory and then participate in the Battle of Naboo. In this game, you shut down creation of a biological weapon, hunt down its creators, and then prevent its use in the Battle of Geonosis.

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: One mission features a Saboath Destroyer launching tugs the player must intercept. You may try to destroy it outright, allowing your own tugs to salvage in peace. Cue another Destroyer warping in while the enemy commander laughs maniacally.

* MightyGlacier: Nym's fighter, the ''Havoc''.
** And the LAAT Gunship. Slower than all other ships save for the ''Havoc,'' but it comes with more health, a stronger shield, several limited missiles, and the rechargeable mini-SPHAT lasers that can reduce many ships to scrap in only a couple of seconds. In fact, it alone can make short work of everything but the endgame capital ships.

%%* FragileSpeedster: The appropriately-named ''Zoomer''.

to:

%%* * {{Foreshadowing}}: Reti shows up at the beginning of the game, scared out of his mind and looking to meet with a Jedi. However, Adi's interest is in using him to meet with Nym. During the first mission, shortly after Reti and Galia make contact, the ''Slave I'' makes an appearance (labeled "???") before zooming off again when it sees the Trade Federation already in combat with Galia. The ''Slave I'' shows up to chase Reti off again later in the game.

* ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy: In mission 7, the TF [[KillSat Orbital Cannons]] fire hundreds of shots at frigates less than 20 kilometers away, and hit exactly once. In mission 14, you command a Cannon of your own, ordering it to fire at targets several thousand kilometers away, and it can pick off tanks.



* PutOnABus: Rhys Dallows, protagonist from the previous game, is never even mentioned in this game, or seen again in the Star Wars Universe for that matter. Vana almost seems like she, too, has vanished, but ultimately, it's averted. She shows up in Nym's final mission, before going after Reti.

* BilingualBonus: Sabaoth Squadron uses the Hebrew word for "hosts of heaven." And when they show up, you can expect a lengthy and gritty battle.
