In Sorcererlord when you finally descend on the Shadowlord citadel (after dealing with wave after wave of shadowlord skirmish attacks). If only the game wasn't bugged so you couldn't kill them off.

I remember wizardry (c64) being a nightmare to load because it just stayed with a blue screen all the way through (when it was released loading screens were being used in most games).
