'''You'd Expect:''' That they refrain from sending the Republic's only hope against an all-powerful Sith Lord, even with a backup of veterans Jedis. Bastila is a simple Padawan and she can't use her Battle Meditation during combat. Her death or capture could immediately doom the Republic.\\
'''Instead:''' They send her in combat with other Jedis against Revan despite the great risks. She's lucky to make it out alive, because [[TheStarscream Malak chose that very moment to betray his master]].

** During the Sunry murder trial sidquest, Jolee claims that Jedi don't murder even the Sith in their sleep. In the main canon's ''Film/TheLastJedi'', [[spoiler: Luke Skywalker, in a moment of weakness, attempted to murder Ben Solo in his sleep out of fear that he might have been corrupted by the Dark Side. While he ultimately didn't go through with it, him attempting to do it at all ended up creating Kylo Ren and destroying the rebuilt Jedi Order, and Luke feels very disgusted by his own behavior (as well as that of the old Jedi Order)]].

* HarsherInHindsight: ''All of it'' after you've made a run or two through ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublicII'' and ''VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic.'' Every victory you or your party members accomplish is used for ''[[PlayerPunch target]] [[ShootTheShaggyDog practice]]'' or a sick, twisted joke. Even your PlayerCharacter [[spoiler: ends up charging in on an ill-prepared "plan" to stop the Sith Emperor and loses, is subject to MindRape by the Sith Emperor for 300 years, the Sith come back and curb-stomp an unprepared Republic ''anyway,'' and Revan ends up an insane OmnicidalManiac that has to be put down like a rabid mutt by the ''Imperial'' faction]].

* AwesomeEgo: Assessment: HK-47 is AN egoistical braggart that mocks everyone not named Revan and The Exile, and frequently boasts of his exploits and abilities. He is proud to say fans love him for it.

** Force Wave will force push, stun and kill any enemies in front of you - ''in any number''.

** Throw Lightsaber is an AlwaysAccurateAttack, doesn't cost too many force points to use, and is fairly long ranged. It can be used to endlessly kite melee enemies - including bosses - around battlefields while whittling down their health and only facing the occasional force attack, which can be dodged with decent stats or equipment.

** TheReveal is quite the PlayerPunch if you play as Light Side. [[spoiler: Instead of simply fighting Malak, you realize that YOU dragged him to the dark side to begin with so now you're undoing the atrocities you helped create.]]
** ''VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'' takes this punch to the gut even further. Remember those people in the Undercity you helped discover the way to their Promised Land? [[spoiler: Good news was that they they survived the bombing and found the Promised Land. Bad news was that all the droids and technology there was rendered non-operational when the bombing cut off the power. Then the Rakghouls mutated so they could breed independently, instead of being created solely through infection. Then several generations later, they ran out of anti-rakghoul serum. The final survivors were barely literate and sterile, due to long-term exposure to toxic radiation]]. So, how about those Light-Side points?

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

* MemeticTroll: Statement: HK-47 and by extend, his creator [[spoiler: Darth Revan]]. [[FantasticRacism He view organics as inferior]] and calls them meatbags at every turn. If you call him out, he'll make half-assed apologies and [[HypocriticalHumor keep on using the term]]. And the reason why he's saying that is because [[spoiler: Revan]] programmed him as such after he called Malak a meatbag, much to his creator's amusement.

** One word: [[OneManArmy Canderous]]. He can regenerate his health, he can take tons of punishment and his marksmanship is devastating. When you first acquire him as a companion, it is best that you let him go on solo and take care all of the problem for you. [[spoiler: He is just as devastating in the sequel. There's a ''reason'' Mandos have their reputation!]]
