This is arguably the most popular game in the franchise following Star Wars: Dark Forces, Star Wars Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II, and Mysteries of the Sith. You play as Kyle Katarn — a smuggler-turned-Jedi — who must take on powerful foes to keep the galaxy safe from dark forces. This is seriously the best game for any Star Wars fan who wanted to see Han Solo wielding a lightsaber, because that's basically who the protagonist is.
During the course of your adventure, you'll come across familiar characters from the original Star Wars trilogy, like Luke Skywalker and Lando Calrissian. Geek out as you improve your force powers and become a legendary Jedi.
From smuggler to Jedi
Like Han Solo with The Force
Play as Kyle Katarn, a smuggler-turned-Jedi and battle against powerful enemies of the Sith as you train to become a legendary Jedi Master. This classic Star Wars game is a must for any Star Wars fan.
