Funny / Star Wars: Battlefront

  • The Imperial commander's lines in II's Capture The Flag mode. Hearing him say "The Rebels have foolishly dropped the flag," conjures up an image of a Rebel carrying the flag along and then just kind of spontaneously deciding to throw it away because he forgot what he was supposed to do with it or something. "Whoever dropped the flag will pay for their incompetence!" is also a good one.
    • "The Rebels have lost the flag. A pity."
  • What about the Republic commander when the CIS scores a point?
    • "That's a point for the CIS. Damn!"
  • For once the CIS has one, too, complete with a Shout-Out to their spiritual ancestor.
    • "The Republic meatbags have the flag."
  • The Artificial Stupidity of your AI teammates. Or better yet, when it's the enemy AI that's stupid.
  • One of the built-in cheat codes is for "Party Effects Mode". These effects include comic-book style hit effects when someone gets smacked with a lightsaber, and humorous captions when Rebels are killed by Wampas.
  • On maps in II where the CIS' "hero" unit is Jango Fett, troopers will occasionally remark "It's Jango! And he brought his head!"
  • The Imperial announcer in II is named in the manual as "Smarmy British Palpatine Ally". Yes, for realsies.
  • One quote from a clone trooper if accidentally shot by a friendly: "Was it something I said?!"
  • In both games, the Rebel Alliance has different tank unit. Both, however, have the exact same backstory of designs lost by engineers from the same company in a game of Sabacc and picked up by the Alliance. Both designs are considered canon (for the old EU, anyway), as they have both appeared in other games, meaning either both designs were lost at the same time, or the same incident happened to the same company on two separate occasions.
  • The launch trailer for DICE's Battlefront features Boba Fett losing control of his jetpack and hovering precariously over the Sarlacc pit, until he manages to correct his flight whilst saying "That won't happen again"
