For me touch shots are most satisfying. I sort of try to specialize in them as I don't play for money and like to surprise my opponents by disguising my shots. I purposely have a difficult swing to read and often change at the last moment. Wrongfooting is nice too. Sometimes I will just play an extreme crosscourt ball, with a very sharp angle that bounces before the serve line, close to the sideline. At other times I will pretend to do that but all of a sudden hit an inside out. It is quite satisfying to hit a medium pace winner, just because your opponent runs the other way. Dropshots and lobs, especially in combination are nice too. But if I can choose one shot I especially like it would have to be a cross-court drop volley almost paralel to the net.
