* BestLevelEver: The Battle of Hoth had already gotten a decent rendition in ''Super Empire Strikes Back'', but this game just took it to the next level. The last mission, the Skyhook Battle is a close runner-up for this title. Hoth was such a well-received level that they spawned [[VideoGame/RogueSquadron a whole other series]].
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: The [[http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=52216F97F15A201A soundtrack]].
** Special mention should be given to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ekEUCI_9L2A&p=52216F97F15A201A Imperial City]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x_deMfDs9jY&p=52216F97F15A201A The Destruction of Xizor's Palace]].
* 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.
* SoCoolItsAwesome: The novel is one of the most loved Expanded Universe works not written by TimothyZahn.
** George Lucas himself said that it qualifies as a piece of ''Star Wars'' media that should have been an official film.
* {{Squick}}: Guri is fully equipped as a human replica droid. And Xizor has actually used said equipment.
* ThatOneBoss: Boba Fett has a jetpack just like you, fires Seekers and other powerful weaponry, there's practically nowhere to hide, it gets even worse when he jumps into his Slave 1 ship, and it doesn't help that it comes at the end of a MarathonLevel.
** The Gladiator from Xizor's Palace has three "forms": the full figure, its torso (with a rocket booster to propel itself around), and its head. When its second form appears, a labyrinth forms that also has some enemies inside. When the head is left, [[FromBadToWorse your jetpack malfunctions]]. And it always spams the laser (with a really big area span) no matter where you are.
* ThatOneLevel:
** Ord Mantell junkyard. You have to jump from train car to train car, and from train to train. All to face 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.
** [[DownTheDrain Sewers of Imperial City]]. For some players, it's because of the dianogas scattered throughout the level if only because you [[HellIsThatNoise hear its roar]] before you see it.
