** In the first game, if the player shoots down too many escorts or friendlies, Rieekan will contact Luke to return to base so he can "discuss [Skywalker's]... ''tactics''... in private."

* AndNowForSomeoneCompletelyDifferent: Across all 3 games you will be switching out pilots on a regular basis. The first RS has you play as Luke Skywalker almost the entire game, with the exception of the Battle of Calmarri, where you play as Wedge Anteilles. Rogue Leader has the most pilot changes, with the first three missions playing as Luke, until a mid mission switch to Wedge, who you play as for the rest of the regular missions. You do play as Luke in a couple of bonus missions, as well as Darth Vader in the alternate reality missions. You also get to play as Han Solo in one bonus mission, and if you use the Millinum Falcon in the Strike at the Core mission, you get to play as Lando Calrissian. 3 meanwhile has an equal number of missions for Luke and Wedge, as they have a branching missions. You also get one mission as Green Leader, the pilot who made the HeroicSacrifice at the end of Episode VI.

* BossOnlyLevel: "Razor Rendezvous" in Rogue Leader. You in a B-wing versus a Star Destroyer. "Attack on the Executor" in Rebel Strike pits you against ''three'' Star Destroyers and then the Executor itself, a Super Star Destroyer.

* BrutalBonusLevel: The Coruscant bonus level in "Battle for Naboo". Darth Maul's Sith Infiltrator has almost no means of attacking you save dropping a mine on occasion, but it's a very fast and small target that can take a ''lot'' of damage. It turns into a very tedious game of cat and mouse, all while flying through the claustrophobic skyscrapers of the city and dodging the traffic.

* CallBack: During the first game's "Defection on Corellia" mission, Han Solo unexpectedly arrives in the Millennium Falcon, and saves a Rebel pilot from TIE bombers in a manner similar to when he saved Luke at [[Film/ANewHope the Battle of Yavin]]. For bonus points, he even shouts "Yee-haw!" as he shoots the bombers down.

*** The Millennium Falcon in the first game (its maneuverability got [[{{Nerf}} Nerfed]] hard in later installments, making it a MightyGlacier instead.) Its most notable feature is the auto-targeting, rotatable and heavy-hitting quad guns.
*** Naboo Starfighter: In the main Rogue Squadron games, it can be best described as "A-Wing Deluxe"; its faster and hits harder, but can take more of a beating. Like the X-Wing and Y-Wing, it also has the benefit of an R2 unit for last-minute shield boost. Its appearance in "Battle for Naboo" was slightly nerfed in regards to speed and firepower (considering it essentially replaces the X-Wing), but is still no less useful of a craft, especially when it replaces its substantially weaker counterpart, the Police Cruiser, midway through the game.

The first game was later ported to PC operating systems as ''Rogue Squadron 3D'', and is available from UsefulNotes/GOGDotCom. See also ''VideoGame/XWing'' and ''VideoGame/TIEFighter'', games to which the ''Rogue Squadron'' series is in many respects a SpiritualSuccessor.

*** The T-16 Skyhopper in the original games "Beggars Canyon" level, the only level you play it in. Its bulkiness makes it hard to turn safely, and its only weapon is a slow firing, useless laser cannon. The sequels give it some new features, like ion cannons, torpedoes, and bombs, but that's only because the ship is used in the tutorial level [[NecessaryDrawback (and nowhere else)]], and needs that equipment in order for the player to learn how it works.

** The Endurance Levels of Rogue Leader and Rebel Strike. Rogue Leader pits you up against 100 waves of TIE Fighters, and you have to complete them all within a certain time limit (which can run up to hours on end) to get medals. Rebel Strike puts you in a similar situation, except you're on-foot and fighting 100 waves of Stormtroopers instead.

You also get one mission as Green Leader, the pilot who made the HeroicSacrifice at the end of Episode VIII.

* DamageSpongeBoss: The Sith Infiltrator in the "Battle for Naboo" Coruscant bonus level. While it barely has any means of attacking you, it is a very fast, small target that is extremely frustrating to bring down.

* AdaptationDistillation: To say that the Death Star Trench Run level from the first game took a few liberties from the source material is like saying the Death Star is "kinda big". The Trench is '''huge''' compared to the movie, it curves into a square like path rather than the straight, narrow path it originally was, it's loaded with dozens of TIE Fighters, giant blocks and small and tower sized turbo lasers that constantly fire (as opposed to a barren trench with a handful of small turbo lasers that eventually stop shooting and Vader's TIE squadron), Vader's TIE doesn't appear at all and Han's BigDamnHeroes moment is reduced to a contextless cameo, and Wedge pulls out of the trench ''after'' Han shoots down the ties.
** The Trench Run in Rogue Leader is much more faithful to the movie, but adds block obstacles (which the dev team claims is a homage to the Atari Star Wars arcade game) and more turbo lasers to keep the gameplay exciting.
