15. Kyle Katarn's lightsaber leaves a trail in the wall. We geek out

We were easily impressed in 2002. The idea of Kyle Katarn waving his lightsaber and having it leave a fiery mark in the wall wowed us so much, LucasArts built a whole marketing campaign around the otherwise pointless feature. Even without a digitized history of wanton laser-swordplay, Jedi Outcast was everything we wanted from the follow-up to Jedi Knight: better graphics, fast-paced Jedi action, fun multiplayer, and a great story featuring one of the most beloved heroes of the Star Wars Expanded Universe, Kyle Katarn. And if you entered the dismemberment code appropriately? Stormtrooper decapitations. Lots of stormtrooper decapitations.
