* 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.

* DevelopmentGag: "Starkiller" was going to be Luke's surname in the prototypical Star Wars.

* KickTheDog: Or drop kick an Ewok in the sequel's Endor DLC level. Or Ugnaughts and Jawas in the original with Sith Punt or Sith Throw.
** The Dark Side ending for the original has Palpatine verbally kicking Starkiller around as he is being rebuilt into his Stalker armor, assuring him that like Vader, he will only be used until a new apprentice is taken, after which he will be cast aside.
