YMMV / Jedi Starfighter

  • Complete Monster: Captain Cavik Toth is a mercenary-turned-Trade Federation leader who rules over the Karthakk system with an iron fist. Developing a banned chemical weapon known as trihexalon, Hex for short, Toth uses it to murder three of his servants when they aren't performing their tasks fast enough, and then orders his sadistic second-in-command Lieutenant Bella to test the Hex on the planet Maramere, leading to thousands of deaths and an attempted thousands more. Toth plans to mass produce the Hex then use it to bring death across the galaxy simply to establish himself as an important asset to Count Dooku, and in the end tries to bombard the planet of Geonosis with the Hex, ordering Jedi Master Adi Gallia and her friends be captured alive solely so Toth can have them tortured to death.
  • Demonic Spiders: Anything with "hex" in its name. Not because they can kill you, but because they can end your Escort Mission in a hurry.
    • Mother Fucking Geonosian Starfighters!! They get downright unfair in Mission 11, when they spam rather strong missiles and spawn on both sides of the Republic cruiser, making them very hard to intercept. And unlike "hex" units, they're just as dangerous to you as they are your escort mission charge.
  • Game-Breaker: The X-Wing can turn into this, same with the Advanced Havoc.
    • The Republic Gunship also qualifies, what with its incredibly powerful Hitscan beam cannons, and turrets that shoot other targets.
    • Once you get Force Reflex, the Jedi Starfighter (and by extension, the Advanced Jedi Starfighter, which starts with all four powers) becomes this. It slows down time for 15 seconds and recharges in 20... and the recharge time is counted by your own perspective, basically letting you slow time to a crawl indefinitely. Need to dodge attacks, take out a swarm of hex missiles, focus firepower on a hard target, or lock down a fast enemy like Captain Toth? Force Reflex can do it all.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: One of the characters in the game is named Siri.
