I think a lot of it was already covered, but some new ones:

bioenergetic
federated
extropic/negentropic

I guess obligated just sounds more clumsy and American and official like burglarized... is it a deliberate tactic to make words sound worse and thus give them some kind of awkward official heft?

The only difference in my mind is connotational, but I may be idiosyncratic here. I think obligated is more formal and explicit, whereas obliged is more informal and implicit.

If you sign a contract, you are obligated to act in a certain way. If you receive a gift, you are obliged to return one.

yeah without looking it up thats how i feel about it too. obligated has more of a must to it, or feels that way in any case
