I would be surprised if any of the normal SW charactors are even mentioned in the actual game(not manual). Remember, it is about Kyle Katarn not anyone else.

Okay, this is just an FYI for anyone who might be a little confused as to where JKII actually fits into the Timeline. According to Haden Blackman in a recent chat log, JKII takes place approximately 14 years post-ANH (A New Hope, or the original Star Wars movie) :D

I'll start from Return of the Jedi (ROTJ), and work my way forward, including just the novels and the games...

ANH +4

Bounty Hunter Wars: Mandalorian Armour
Bounty Hunter Wars: Slave Ship
Bounty Hunter Wars: Hard Merchandise
Truce at Bakura
Jedi Knight - Computer Game (Yay!)

The Lost City of The Jedi
Zorba The Hutt's Revenge
Mission from Mount Yoda

Prophets Of The Dark Side

ANH +6.5-7.5

X-Wing: Rogue Squadron
X-Wing: Wedge's Gamble
X-Wing: The Krytos Trap

ANH +22-23

So now you know approximately where JKII is supposed to be set during the timeline. It comes approx. 4 years after the end of MotS, the Jedi Academy has been up and running for about 3 years, and the Black Fleet Crisis has yet to happen.

Hope that clears up any confusion in people's minds. ;)

Actually, some of it came from the Behind The Magic CD, but I updated it by referring to some of the novels I have. ;)

It's by no means exhaustive - I didn't include a lot of the comics, etc.

Just hope it comes in handy as a ready reckoner. ;)
