I really liked Kyle (although JO is the only Dark Forces game I've ever played). He was really unique. He was the first and only(that I know of) to combine the lightside and darkside and prove the Jedi's long held beliefs of the "aggressiveness+pain+fear=dark side=evil" were not completely correct. He remained mentally intact while using the dark and light side of the force openly.

He was pretty cool, but like you said about relearning the force more than once (once again, I've only played JO, so I haven't experienced the rest of the story. DF mod can fix that ) got pretty redundant. Now he sticks with the force and it's hard to create challenges.

Maybe a true JK3 could be in which you play him as well as other important characters, but that won't focus around Kyle enough.

At first, it was a decent story (based on pieces of info I have gathered during JO times). Is this correct? I would never intentionally soil the great Dark Forces series with my misinformation.

He joined an imperial academy(Morgan, his father, was secretly a rebel). He was told that his father was killed by rebels and he joined the imperial Special Ops for revenge. He met Jan, who told him that Morgan was killed by Jerec so Kyle went to the rebels for revenge. He was a very important asset to the rebels in the galactic civil war and was the one to find the deathstar plans. Eventually, he went to avenge his father, but temporarily fell to the dark side of the force. He defeated Jerec and was scared of his turn, so he left the force and gave his lightsaber to Luke, come JO. Is this at all correct? Once again, I used the info about Jerec, the darkside turn, the meeting of Jan, and the demo level of the Dark Forces mod, to guess this. Is this at all the least bit correct or at least correct, but out of sequence?

Question: How old is Kyle at JO? He has greying hair, but about how old is he?

I liked Kyle 'till JK1... When MotS came up and he fell to the Dark Side and back and became the Reluctant Jedi or JediPhobic if you will.. It started to get on my nerves.

Besides, JA offers me what i want and why i got into character modeling... customization.

I actually like Kyle but like I said... only till JK1. The JO Kyle was totally unappealing character.

I will miss him, as he became the character version of me - I molded his behaviour and so on, especially in JKII.

That said, I don't have any regret NOT playing him in Jedi Academy, and wouldn't mind if he was a NPC in JKIII if that ever gets made. (we may get Jedi Academy II instead)

hmmm.. there doesn't seem to be any way to bring him back as the player character when they do make JK3... unless they go for the alternate JK ending.

If I had to pick an alternate character to play in JK3 it would be Aurra Sing... it would be nice to have a dark side char for once, she has a reason to have low level powers at the start (quiting the academy), a reason to use weapons as well (being a bounty hunter) and a reason to fight a lot of jedi (collecting their sabers).

Or mara jade... but lots of people who are far too picky didn't think her being in MotS fitted the rest of the EU... like it matters. some people are so picky.

But that is for if and when they ever make JK3

Just kidding! (with apologies to many of the competitive players out there who actually do like playing in the Star Wars universe, and don't just want a quake clone with sabres and force powers)
