ASP.NET is really cool, but it seems that I can only program "live" and graphically-heavy applications (like games) with Silverlight - e.g. today I was able to make a label that displays the number of ticks that have gone by in the program, nonstop.
Is all of this true, or am I misunderstanding something? Also, is it practical to have a website that uses ASP.NET and Silverlight combined, or would you generally just use one or the other?

Silverlight opens a plethora of opportunities for .net developer since it can be used on almost all OS ( if browser are silverlight compatible)..You can use silverlight app to create apps for mobile phones as well as websites...Silverlight can be combined
with asp.net to create websites..Suppose you want to create video page for your site..now make this page as a silverlight page hosting Media Element and rest all pages can be plain aspx pages...

this is good quesstion.
Using Silverlight you can do
1. On-line video playing
2. Graphical games & animation
3. Image processing like Zoom in-out(wihtout any bad resolution) roaate by any degree.
we can create a webstie wtih C# alone but its based on the project requirements.

You can combine ASP.NET and Silverlight. They are different things and not mutually exclusive. Silverlight is a plugin, like Flash. ASP.NET is a web development framework whose job is to generate HTML. You can build games using HTML5:
