Here is a problem with the first Dark Forces time line.

It is set before ROTJ right.
You fight Boba Fett of course. Well unless I missed something. Boba Fett was to busy running from Dash Rendar and Luke Skywalker while getting Han Solo, who was in carbonite, to Jabba the Hutt. How could he fight Katarn, keep Solo from being saved, get Solo to Jabba, and still be able guard Solo when he got it to Jabba. And you might say it starts between ESB and ROTJ, but Vader was alive at the end saying "The force is strong in this one." Or something like that (Sorry if I missed this quote). Not just that Jabba was in it. And if he could survive Choking, Barge he was on exploding, and the walk back(This is the most deadly to Jabba.:D ) I doubt he could be alive at that point. So you can see some problems.

well, the Original Dark Forces took place before A New Hope. You (kyle) stole the planes for the first Death Star, so theres your answer :D and we are off the the swamp :p

He made a clear cut death wail, so don't you try to cover up for the Man. I saw that fall, it was too far for any man, armored or otherwise to survive. This is a conspiracy!!!!

The JKII timeline is messed aswell. Mon Mothma is chief of state, but the Jedi Academy is up and running, with fully trained Jedis.

I thought Mon Motha retired and became the head of New Republic Intelligance in this time period? At least that's how I thought the books went. That also explains why she's talking to Kyle.

I thought the Bothans stole the Death Star plans....

Mon Mothma said so in ANH, something along the lines of "Many Bothans died bringing us this information".

That was the second Death Star, in ANH Mon Mothma was still sitting on the Imperial Senate I believe, at least until it was dissolved. She wasn't in it at all.

Clearly, but that was a death wail, not some simple scream, he obviously died!!

I bet the storyline creators for jk2 could think of a reason for all your problems with the timeline :P im sure they wouldnt make a really big flaw in the timeline due to the big starwars roleplay following

Dark Forces began before ANH and ended not too long after ANH

Oh really? Doesn't seem like they TRIED to me. I like Kyle's magic lightsaber (changes color from orange to blue! Just add water!) and the completely...WRONG...Jedi Academy. It's EU. Make it FIT EU!!!

Stoopid people. >.<

What's wrong with the Jedi Academy?

Boba doesn't "die" when you beat him, it's pretty obvious from the death animation that he turns and flys away.

See, George has been playing us for fools all along.

Fett "dying" in the Sarlacc in ROTJ and then coming "escaping" for Dark Empire?

"Dying" at the hands of Kyle Katarn then he's back again for Shadows of the Empire?

Think about it.... he's a clone right?

HE'S NOT THE ONLY ONE!!!


That's the EU for ya....


Btw, to all the folks who were saying on here how bad it was for JK1 and 2 to have force powers that we never saw in the SW universe and how its evil and wrong for Jedi/Sith to use non-saber weapons... I have four words for ya:

TALES OF THE JEDI!

(sorry, was just reading 'Dark Lords of the Sith' the other day, heh... totally contradicted by AOTC, but still fun nonetheless, a little less cliche-ridden than SOME of the EU I might add)

ooohh...good theory, Kurgan.

But I'm serious about Boba in Dark Forces....he doesn't die, he just runs like a girly man. :)
