In Dark Forces, Kyle Katarn, a young mercenary successfully infiltrated the Empire. Jedi Knight continues the story of Katarn as he embarks on a quest into his past and learns the mysterious ways of the Jedi. With this knowledge, he must stop seven Dark Jedi from unlocking the powers of a hidden Jedi burial ground. This task forces Katarn to decide his destiny. If he chooses the Dark side, he will come into enormous power. If he chooses the Light side, he faces seemingly insurmountable evil. Whatever path Katarn chooses will change the face of the galaxy forever.
While Star Wars Dark Forces was probably one of the first SW games I played in my childhood, Dark Forces II was actually the one, which showed what Star Wars was like besides the adventures of Luke Skywalker. It presented a much larger Galaxy with its variety of weapons, enemies and new locations, which became the setting stone for the next games, released years later.
