* NightmareFuel: The sewers. It's entirely possible to be instantly killed by dianogas in an early stretch before fighting them on a regular basis. The level is hell for people with a fear of underwater creatures.
** And the music. The dark, dank sewers were scary enough without it.

** The Gall Spaceport music, especially the {{Scare Chord}}s. Fittingly enough, it's also Boba Fett's official theme in the overall franchise.

* {{Squick}}: Guri is fully equipped as a human replica droid. And Xizor has actually used said equipment.

** The Giant Dianoga from Sewers of Imperial City. Not only do you have to put up with UnderTheSea physics, but you also have to focus on avoiding both its tentacles and getting sucked into its Sarlacc-like mouth (which will result in a OneHitKill, obviously). Additionally, you can only damage it via AttackItsWeakPoint -- namely, its always-moving eye.

* HilariousInHindsight: A working title for ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' was ''Shadow of the Empire'', but it was changed to avoid confusion with the preceding works.

* HeartwarmingInHindsight: [[spoiler: When Guri is defeated by Luke, he spares her and asks her to come with them in order to reprogram her. She rejected the offer, responding that she'll die if they will try. Later, Guri decided to, and her effort [[HeelFaceTurn was successful]]. Well done, Luke!]]

* PolishedPort: Arguably, the PC port of the game is a significant improvement over the N64 original, what with much more responsive controls and fully voiced, rendered cutscenes that hold up well enough till this day.

** Ord Mantell junkyard. You have to jump from train car to train car, and from train to train- all with physics that will send you helplessly falling to instant death if you attempt a jump at the wrong time. You will die ''a lot'' before you get familiar enough with the mechanics to beat the level; and at the end of it is IG-88.
** The widely reviled Swoop Bike chase level; a level that forces you to drive at breakneck speeds through cluttered streets and levels, with countless opportunities to get stuck, slow down, and crash and burn. The only thing that salvages the level is the enemies actually ''slow down so you can attack them.''

* SchizophrenicDifficulty: The FPS stages of the game are ''much'' harder and take way longer to get through than those that have you drive a vehicle (save, maybe, for the swoop race which, while tough, is still relatively short so you don't have to worry too much about losing your progress in case you run out of lives). The third level, taking place in the Asteroid Field, for instance, is ''ridiculously'' easy in particular and can be beat within less than two minutes.

* FridgeLogic: Navik the Red was still in power, so shouldn't Avaro be lying low and hiding the fact that he's of a condemned clan?
** Avaro's got some pretty big connections to Black Sun, and it's implied that they have the juice to topple Navik's regime if he so much as lifts a finger at Avaro.
