Added DiffLines:

** Both Galen's and his clones' saber stances. Yeah, holding a lightsaber backhanded, with the blades mere millimeters from contact with the back of your arms/elbows, looks cool; but you have to use extra movement and time to bring them to the front to defend yourself or attack, and the slightest wrong move means that you'd cut off your own arm. Doubly so with the clones, who do this have a saber in each hand.

** In the sequel's Dark Side ending is perhaps the most glaring of all, [[spoiler:Starkiller just gets immediately killed via back stab before he can even accomplish anything remotely consequence-worthy.]]

* AwesomeMcCoolname: The only name given to the protagonist in the first game is ''Starkiller''. Doubles as a DevelopmentGag for [[Film/ANewHope the original film]].
* BackFromTheDead: Starkiller, ''twice''. Technically, the second time he's still dead. He just got cloned. The novel hints that it may have been the case first time as well.
* BadassCape: The first alternate costume the player can find throughout the levels is the Sith Robe costume, which gives Starkiller a full-body black cloak typical to the darkest users of the Force.

Added DiffLines:

* StupidEvil: Jabba the Hutt in ''Ultimate Sith Edition''. [[spoiler:Despite Lord Starkiller explicitly being the Empire's new [[TheDragon Dragon]] and offering him a generous reward for his information about R2-D2 and C-3PO, Jabba still chooses the [[SarcasmMode bright]] idea of Rancor-pitting him for some reason.]]

* GenreSavvy: The novelization of the second game makes a point that while Starkiller's purpose is still to AlwaysSaveTheGirl no matter what, he is careful to avoid falling onto TheDarkSide, as Juno most likely would not want to be with the monster he would become on it.

* ForegoneVictory: In the first game's prologue, Darth Vader can't actually die. If the Wookees or the boss Jedi get Vader's health to zero, nothing will happen and the game will just act like Vader still has health.

** The few AI that help you out include "Kashyyyk" Stormtroopers while playing as Vader, Wookies when Starkiller returns to his own planet, 501st Snowtroopers in the Hoth DLC level and a few scattered Rebel squads in the second game. The PS2/Wii/PSP versions of the first game changed some of these and added more, the Kashyyyk Troopers were replaced by 501st Stormtroopers (these guys had a more noticeably accent), Bail Organa's bodyguards briefly appear on Felucia and Cloud City Wing Guards assist you in the exclusive Bespin level. In spite of all that, these friendly faces aren't of much help in actual combat.

* TheSlowWalk: Darth Vader cannot run or dash when you play as him in the prologue; he can simply menacingly walk forward while throwing Wookee's aside with the Force.

* WeWillUseManualLaborInTheFuture: Or in a galaxy far far away that has space ships, upsidedown cities and other modern marvels. [[ZigZaggingTrope Zig Zagged]] though, in that it depends on who does it. For example, the Empire's ship-building facilities use state-of-the-art automation for building TIE fighters and even the Executor flagship is assembled by an army of construction droids. However, the novelization states that much of the heavy labor on the Death Star was done by Wookie slaves. Starkiller frees many of them on his way to fight Vader and the Emperor, so it's not clear who puts the finishing touches on the station afterwards.

* DrowningMySorrows: When Starkiller seeks out Kota for the Rebellion, he finds the Jedi in a bar on Nar Shadaa, slightly tipsy.

* CodeName: The main character is only referred to as "Starkiller" (a codename assigned by Darth Vader) in the two games he stars in. His real name, Galen Marek, is only mentioned in the novelization of the game. The second novelization only uses Starkiller's real name on one occasion, but even than the name gets cut off.
