Description

Star Wars: Jedi Knight - Jedi Academy is the sequel to Star Wars: Jedi Knight II - Jedi Outcast. The player is cast as Jaden Korr, a padawan at the Jedi Academy taught by Luke Skywalker and Kyle Katarn. Both the character and his lightsaber are to be created at the beginning of the game. Throughout the game, the player will acquire several force powers and weapons, such as lightning and the Tenlos Disruptor Rifle. As he progresses through the different missions, he may be seduced by the dark side of the Force...

Screenshots

Star Wars: Jedi Knight - Jedi Academy Windows Hidden in the multiplayer menus are the screens that teach you all of the special lightsaber combo attacks.
Star Wars: Jedi Knight - Jedi Academy Windows Core force powers (jump, push etc...) develop on a schedule but at the start of most missions, you can choose to boost your light side or dark side powers.
Star Wars: Jedi Knight - Jedi Academy Windows How cliche is the FPS sniper rifle?  So cliche that even Jedi Knights carry them around now.
Star Wars: Jedi Knight - Jedi Academy Windows No trip to Tatooine would be complete without a Tusken hunt.

Trivia

Vjun and Bast Castle were first seen in Dark Empire II (which must be a different timeline since the events in Dark Empire II were also roughly ten years after Endor).
