* PeninsulaOfPowerLeveling: The Dune Sea on Tattooine has an infinitely respawning herd of Wraids that give good EXP and are guaranteed to drop [[VendorTrash Desert Wraid Skull Plates]], which sell for a good amount of credits on Yavin Station.

** Getting the maximum amount of Light Side points on Kashyyyk ultimately results in the player ''sparing'' every slaver and poacher they come across, while putting down the Wookies they prey on simply because {{PunchClockVillain they get in your way]] with no option to negotiate. And while they're technically under orders from a traitorous chieftain who's selling out his own kind, but it's never made clear how much his bodyguards know about his dealings.

* InfantImmortality: Largely played straight, [[spoiler:but absolutely brutally averted in the Dark Side ending, which will see Revan either use the Force to [[StealthPun force]] Zaalbar to kill Mission Vao, or does it himself, and kills Big Z as well.]] For the record, [[spoiler:[[MoralEventHorizon Mission is only FOURTEEN,]] and Zaalbar is her best friend. Nice job, YouMonster.]]

* PressXToDie:
** You can try to talk to Calo Nord after watching him effortlessly kill three gangsters. He reacts to you in precisely the same manner. If you don't back off before he counts to three, you get a Hopeless Boss Fight.
** Pleading guilty to your attempt to break into the Sith base on Manaan will get you executed.
** There are several computer terminals throughout the game that let you hack into various security systems. Most of them offer the ability to activate security systems or overload terminals in various rooms, eliminating any enemies in the area. There's nothing to stop you doing this to the room you're currently standing in.



** When you first meet Calo Nord he meets a group of thugs who threaten him. Calo starts CountingToThree as the thugs harass him, when he reaches three, he makes short work of them. The player can try to speak with Calo and he will respond by counting again. If the player ignores his warning, Calo will kill the player.
** After you invade the Sith Base on Manaan, you will be taken to a hearing where you plead your case for disrupting the neutral laws. The sentence is death. You can plead guilty in the case and get executed.

The game is notable for its numerous tongue-in-cheek movie references and while few were surprised at it being significantly better than the typical [[TheProblemWithLicensedGames licensed game]], seeing as the ''Star Wars'' franchise has been rather successful in avoiding this issue, probably even fewer expected it would end up regarded by the gaming world as one of the best RPG games of all times and any Top Ten lists that wouldn't give ''[=KotOR=]'' at least an honorary mention are rather hard to come by.[[note]]And good luck finding a Top Ten ''Star Wars'' games list that wouldn't include ''[=KotOR=]'' in the top three spots.[[/note]] This success can be attributed to not being a direct tie-in despite being based on a licensed property, thus avoiding a deadline to meet the movie's release. The plot was essentially ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights'' [[XMeetsY meets]] ''VideoGame/BaldursGate'', but not enough to be classified as RecycledInSPACE. Bioware used the gameplay format used in ''[=KotOR=]'' for two of their following franchises, which gained equal fame: ''Franchise/DragonAge'' and ''Franchise/MassEffect''.

** One Republic Solider is slowly turning into a Rakghoul. If you administer the serum, he'll be cured. After you talk to him, he hears some noises and panics. Rather than staying with you and a well-armed party, he runs off and get slaughtered by Rakghouls.

* AbusivePrecursors: The Rakata. They enslaved several species across the galaxy, terre-formed their planets to meet their own needs and created the Star Forge, a gargantuan space station powered by ''The Dark Side itself''. Eventually, their entire species lost its connection to the force, and they degenerated into tribal primitives found only in the ruins of their homeworld.

* HeelRealization: Yuthura the apprentice of the Sith Academy's headmaster can have one if the player questions her motivations. When she turns on them during their final trial she admits it mostly out of fear that they were making her realize the truth. If spared she can be redeemed and return to the Jedi.
