Added DiffLines:

* Red Shirt: 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.
** Kota's Militia and the Rebel Troopers in the Hoth DLC level technically count as this although they actually fight the player. Ironically enough, these "bad guys" are also more stronger enemies due to their increased health and damage in comparison to regular Imperial units. In fact, if you hang back and let the two groups fight each other you can watch as they often effortlessly mow down the Stormtroopers.

A Creator/LucasArts ''Franchise/StarWars''-based multimedia project, like ''ShadowsOfTheEmpire'' eleven years before it. Covers a wide range of media including ComicBooks, a novel (by Creator/SeanWilliams), action figures and a RolePlayingGame, but the VideoGame has received most of the attention. It's something of a TechDemoGame, with a great deal of pre-release hype surrounding its use of Digital Molecular Matter (a physics engine that makes environmental destruction, such as bending metal and tearing plant matter, much more detailed than anything seen before) and Euphoria AI coding (which determines enemy behavior in a much more realistic fashion -- stormtroopers grabbing hold of each other or the environment when lifted by the Force, for example), though the game's inconsistent use of both these elements drew criticism in addition to the elements noted below.

** During the final battle with Palpatine, Palpatine will say to Starkiller "You will scream just like your father" in such a way that almost echoes what Andross told Fox [=McCloud=] in the Easy route of Venom in {{Star Fox 64}}.

* LoadsAndLoadsOfLoading: The first game. The PS2 version is notoriously bad about it - the gameplay itself runs smoothly enough, but going through the menus during the rest period between stages quickly becomes a hassle. Scrolling through the various [[AndYourRewardIsClothes custom outfits]] can take between 10-20 seconds per shift, with close to a dozen possible outfits to choose from and no way to skip to the one you want.

[[SarcasmMode Because righteous fury toward a complete]] {{Sociopath}} [[SarcasmMode whom had your entire childhood ruined automatically means that you want to replace him as an]] EvilOverlord [[spoiler:if you retaliate]].]]

** The original's Dark Side ending. [[spoiler:A revenge-driven moment of weakness -- even if: (A) it's against an AssholeVictim, and (B) you still try to help the good guys afterward -- is automatically a MoralEventHorizon-crossing deserving of a FateWorseThanDeath. [[SarcasmMode Right]].]]
** The sequel's Dark Side ending is perhaps the most glaring of all. [[spoiler:Starkiller just gets immediately killed via BackStab before he can even accomplish anything remotely consequence-worthy.]]

* CoupDeGraceCutscene: The {{Quicktime Event}}s at the end of boss battles.
* CutsceneIncompetence: [[spoiler:Although you reduce Palpatine's lifebar to zero in the final battle, this does not prevent him from killing Galen in about ten seconds in the cutscene.]] It's possibly justified by the fact that Palpatine is a very powerful Sith Lord. [[spoiler:It'd just be stupid for you to actually kill him. Not to mention that as a canonical prequel (for the Light Side ending, like every Star Wars game) neither Vader nor Palpatine could die.]] The lifebar is just a [[GameplayAndStorySegregation gameplay mechanic.]] Also, this would [[Film/RevengeOfTheSith not be the first time]] that [[spoiler: Palpatine feigned weakness during a fight as a means of lowering his opponent's guard.]]

*** FridgeBrilliance comes in when you realize that the above literally comes out to "THX1138", X being the Roman numeral for "ten".

* CanonDiscontinuity: In December 2013, Pablo Hidalgo made a statement via twitter, that declared the game's depiction of the forming of the Rebel Alliance non-canon. This is apparently part of Disney's new canon-policy, that's currently being worked-on by a team that includes Hidalgo, Leland Chee, and Dave Filoni amongst others.

This was finalized in 2014, which ''all'' EU works before 2014 (that aren't ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'') are declared non-canon unless referenced by a new source.
