** A lot of the Dark Side options are [[SupidEvil eye-rollingly petty]]. [[spoiler: Given who the player character turns out to be, it becomes harder to take Revan seriously knowing that he would probably take candy from a baby if given the chance.]]

** The game engine is not always as versatile as the interesting setting or epic story calls for. Characters always have their weapons equipped, resulting in them sometimes stabbing themselves in the face by accident. The screen frequently fades to black when complicated-to-animate things like kisses happen. And everyone who speaks Huttese uses the exact same voice files over and over and over.

** If an alien doesn't speak Basic, expect to hear
the exact same voice files [[SpeakingSimlish alien giberish]] over and over over, with only a handful of variations depending on species, gender and over.tone. It's hard to take the conflict on Kashyyyk seriously when 90% of the important dialogue is spoken with the same Wookie sample.

** For a significant number of fans, the turret fighter sequences are all but impossible using the keyboard controls. Especially frustrating is the first one that happens while you're escaping Taris, since if your ship explodes you have to watch all the cutscenes again. Fortunately, there are mods that exist which eliminate all but the plot mandatory sequences and make the fights easier to get through.

* DisappointingLastLevel: The Star Forge as it ends on a level of CutAndPasteEnvironments with lots of pointless combat (more than the rest of the game even!).

** Does the voice of Canderous's old buddy Jagi sound familiar? He should, because he's none other than [[VideoGame/DawnOfWar Devastator Sergeant Avitus, Blood Ravens Fourth Company]].

* MemeticLoser: As opposed to his former master, Darth Malak doesn't have too good of a reputation among fans. While he is undoubtedly a powerful Sith Lord, he is also a rather poor strategist, didn't accomplish much on his own and is said to have always been Revan's inferior. It doesn't help that [[spoiler: the first battle with him is very easy from gameplay perspective, and the second one involves him repeatedly losing most of his health, running away to heal and facing you again about dozen times, unless you kill the captive Jedi]] Whether or not this reputation is deserved is arguable.

* EightDeadlyWords: The game has one of the most unsympathetic protagonist casts [=BioWare=] has ever come up with; especially in comparison to their [[Franchise/MassEffect later]] [[Franchise/DragonAge blockbuster]] titles. Almost all of them start out as annoying, whiny and/or hypocritical pricks, and precious few of them get any better as the story progresses. That HK-47, the party's most psychotic member by far, is ''the'' most popular character by a wide margin, is essentially everything one needs to know about the cast.

*** Part of this is due to their very high energy resistance, making them nearly immune to blasters and your newly-acquired lightsaber. Switching back to a vibroblade while fighting them makes them slightly easier. Very little will improve your hit rate against them, however.

* HolyShitQuotient: Most first time players will have this reaction to [[TheReveal the reveal]] that [[spoiler: you were playing as Darth Revan the whole time]]. There is a reason it remains one of the most shocking plot twists in gaming history.

** Some view Canderous as an awesome BadassGrandpa merc. To others he's an unrepentant jerkass hypocrite of epic proportions whose open pride in the horrific war crimes he and his people committed during the Mandalorian Wars make even the resident psychotic KillerRobot HK-47 appear tame in comparison.
