Actually, I see Jedi Outcast being *BOTH* JKII and DFIII. Look at the first few levels - if that doesn't feel like Dark Forces ...
However, naming a game Star Wars Dark Force III Jedi Knight II Jedi Outcast is a mouthful to say the least. Besides, they wanted to emphasize the Jedi Knight aspect of the story. Dark Forces is the pre-history of Kyle Katarn. In JK he discovers his force powers and grows into being a Jedi of sorts. In JKII: JO he has to rediscover his life as a Jedi.
Also, think of the sequel / expansion possibilities. If we give it a name - like Tavion's Revenge, then we could have Jedi Knight II Exp Pack: Tavion's Revenge, or ... Star Wars Dark Force III Jedi Knight II Jedi Outcast: Tavion's Revenge Expansion Pack.
