In mainstream games Python is primarily used as a scripting language. IIRC, the Freedom Force games and Civilization 4 both used Python for scripting and mods. Eve Online also uses Stackless Python quite a bit.

For the games I've worked on we have never used python in the actual game (for scripting we used Lua mostly) but I've had quite a bit of experience using it for tools and writing scripts to automate specific jobs.

It's a super awesome language and very handy to know.
