Some great picks; Nice to know most of you have such good taste!
I'm trying to remember older games just so I don't end up repeating too much...

rebellion, and later when you find out Anton sold you out to the Imps. Bastards!
TIE Fighter - When Harkov makes you take out a minefield in a @#*%$& TIE Interceptor! (gitface!) And once you are assigned to Thrawn and are hunting down Zaarin. (Taste my missile boat!)
Dark Forces - The Arc Hammer level when the epic ass kicking iMUSE music kicks in. You know what I mean. (Seriously, why can't people write music for games like that any more?! Michael Land, Clint Bajakian and Peter McConnell were GODS of the iMUSE system in all early LEC games!)
Republic Commando - The ending. Seeeeeev! Why did they kill off Sev?! He was the best guy in the game!!

Diablo - The Butcher
Doom - I went through all that and they still killed mah bunneh!!
StarCraft 1 - When you have to abandon Kerrigan! Damn you Mengsk!! Li'l Jimmy almost scored!
System Shock 1 and 2 - Both games build pretty intense atmospheres, but the Delacroix reveal in 2 and the first time you run into a Cortex Reaper in 1 are two of my
AvP - I was on the verge of ****ting myself pretty much through the whole Marine campaign!
Thief: When the Trickster and Viktoria take Garret's eye
*ugh!* It really galls that you have to work with her later on in the sequel too
I never finished Thief 2 tho'

Battlezone (The Activision one) - When you first get attacked by Furies
