Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy was a Star Wars game in which the player was the Jedi Jaden Korr, who was a different gender and species according to the player's choice, during the Cult crisis. Throughout the game, Jaden learned different Force powers. The player had the choice at the beginning of each mission to put one power point on one power and engage that skill. There were Dark Side powers, such as Force lightning and Force grip and there were Light Side powers, such as Force heal and Force absorb, and there were neutral powers, such as Force jump and Force pull that progress on their own over the course of the game. Also, before each mission the player got to choose which weapons they would like to carry, such as the E-11 and Bowcaster
The scene started on a transport to the Jedi Academy on Yavin IV, where Jaden met Rosh, a male Human who was nervous about going to the Academy. He babbled on about how nervous he was, and how far Jaden must be ahead of him as Jaden already had his own lightsaber. Something hit the ship and it crashed, beginning the first mission.
There were two training missions, both on Yavin IV.
Yavin: Find the TempleEdit
The first mission in Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy was for Jaden to make his way from the crashed Temple ship and into the Academy. Jaden learned the very basics of combat, fighting several Howlers on his way. Once the two got within sight of the Temple, Rosh spotted two stormtroopers and suggested that Jaden kill them, since he was “the one with the lightsaber."
Once Jaden did that, a Disciple of Ragnos leaped down from the trees into a small valley, which Jaden needed to leap into to attack him from. The mission ended with the death of the disciple, and a cut scene, showing Jaden's discovery of three Disciples using a scepter of some sort firing a beam onto one of the Temples.
The next mission was training, after being selected by Luke Skywalker to be Kyle Katarn’s apprentice, where Jaden learned the basics of lightsaber combat and using his Force powers. The first test was a trial against several remotes, much like the ones used to train Luke Skywalker in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. From there Jaden moved on to an open courtyard with a stream in the middle, which is spanned by a broken bridge. The next test was to jump the bridge.
Once Jaden had jumped the bridge, he needed to Force push a wall to get to the next area, where he encountered Rosh. Rosh unleashed a combat droid, armed with a lightsaber, to slow Jaden down. The rest of the level included using Jaden’s Force pull to pull an unreachable lever to open a door, use Force sense and Force pull to locate and pull two bricks mostly out of the wall to form a staircase up to the next level and use Force speed to run past a closing door.
At the end, Jaden met up with Rosh and Kyle Katarn, both their Master, who warned Rosh about unleashing the droid against Jaden and warned Jaden about controlling his anger.
As a TraineeEdit
The first set of four missions (although five are available to play, and all five may be played if the player chooses to) started Jaden off as a Jedi Trainee.
- Cult Investigation - Corellia
- Droid Recovery - Tatooine
- Mercenary Activity - Tatooine
- Emergency Assistance - Bakura
- Merchant Rescue - Blenjeel
(The player can choose four missions that will be completed, and the fifth is optional. If the player chooses to take it, they still get all the same starting bonuses as the first four (choose a Force power/weapons)).
After Jaden completed his fourth (or fifth, if he chose so) mission, Jaden returned to the Academy. Upon returning, Luke discovered that his journal of all the places he felt the Force strongest was missing. He also discovered that the dark force aura from the Temple was missing and assumed that the Disciples used the scepter to drain the energy. He and Kyle organized separate teams to search each planet and see if the force had been drained from each site. Jaden was sent on a mission to Echo Base - Hoth to find out if any Disciples of Ragnos have visited there. While Jaden was there, he encountered an Imperial garrison that was stationed there, along with a couple Disciples. He accidentally overheard a cultist talking to his superior who apparently was still in the base. Jaden immediately made his way to the hangar where he encountered Alora, the apprentice to the Dark Jedi behind the Disciples. Once Jaden completed the mission, he returned to the Academy on Yavin and reported his findings to Master Skywalker, and was granted the rank of Jedi Apprentice.
As an ApprenticeEdit
As with the Trainee missions, there were five, but only four were needed to be chosen. After the fourth, the player could choose whether to complete the fifth mission or return to the Academy.
- Rescue Mission - Nar Kreeta
- Meet Contact - Zonju V
- Covert Operation - Kril'dor
- Capture Crime Lord - Coruscant
- Cult Investigation - Dosuun
Once the missions were completed, Jaden returned to the Academy, where was sent out on yet another mission, this time to Bast Castle - Vjun with Kyle to investigate if the Disciples had visited the planet due to its immense dark force aura. On Vjun, Jaden had to fight his former training mate, Rosh, who was captured by the Disciples and turned to the Dark Side. He was on Vjun with the Kothos Twins, who do not wield lightsabers but only use the Force. Once Jaden defeated them, Kyle arrived and attempted to turn Rosh from the Dark Side, when Tavion, the unrevealed mastermind of the entire plot, appeared. Tavion was preparing to destroy Kyle when Jaden force guided his saber to the ceiling causing it to collapse, risking his life. Rosh jumped out of the way after pushing Tavion. While Rosh and Tavion escaped, and Kyle used the Force to hold the rocks up until Jaden could cut through the floor with Kyle's lightsaber. Once Jaden and Kyle returned to the Academy, Jaden was promoted again, and needed a new lightsaber.
At this point the player could choose to stick with the traditional single-bladed lightsaber or move on to the more complicated two lightsabers fighting style, or even the difficult to use, but exceptionally powerful double-bladed lightsaber, or saberstaff. Also, the player could choose a new hilt for their lightsaber/lightsabers and a new color for their blade.
As a KnightEdit
As with the Apprentice missions, there were five, but only four needed to be chosen. After the fourth, the player could choose whether to complete the fifth mission or return to the Academy.
- Cult Sighting - Chandrila
- Cult Investigation - Tanaab
- Dismantle Device - Yalara
- Force Theft Investigation - Byss
- Weapon Destruction - Ord Mantell
After Jaden had completed the required amount of levels, Jaden returned to the Academy where he found out that Luke was organizing a group to travel to Korriban. But Kyle told Jaden that they had to stop off someplace else before they could join the group. The Academy had received a distress call from Power Facility - Taspir III concerning Rosh. Once on the planet, Jaden had to weave his way around the exterior of the facility, trying to find an entrance into the facility. Once inside, Jaden was confronted by Alora. Jaden chased Alora throughout the facility until he found Rosh. Rosh admitted turning to the dark side and begged Jaden to forgive him. Here, Jaden was given a choice: kill Rosh and turn to the Dark Side or spare him and remain a Jedi. Either way, Jaden had to face off with Alora and kill her. From there, Jaden made his way to Korriban.
KorribanEditOnce on Korriban, Jaden met up with some fellow Jedi’s and found out that Luke had sent another group which landed in the Valley of the Dark Lords, where the tomb of Marka Ragnos lied. Jaden and the group of Jedi had to find their way to the Valley floor. Once on the Valley floor, Jaden circled around to find Marka's tomb, with Tavion inside. Tavion and Jaden faced off, but Tavion was easily beaten. She swore not to run away again, like she did when she faced Kyle, and leaped onto Ragnos' tomb and slammed the scepter into the tomb, releasing the force ghost of Marka Ragnos. Marka consumed Tavion and confronted Jaden himself, revealing a sword hidden within the scepter. Jaden defeated Marka and sent his spirit back into the tomb, killing Tavion, and destroying the sceptor. When Jaden exited the tomb, he threw his lightsaber to destroy the entrance to the tomb, making it difficult for anyone to get back inside. Finally, a small fleet of Mon Calimari Cruisers exited hyperspace and cleared out the orbital Imperial fleet, freeing the planet for evacuation. Jaden, Luke, and Kyle returned to the Academy, where Jaden was proclaimed a true Jedi Knight. It closed with Rosh getting a new cybernetic arm, after Alora cut it off, and Jaden and Kyle talking about future adventures they may experience.
In the game, the player had a choice to either turn to the light side or the dark side, when they confront Rosh for the second time. If the player chose the dark side, Jaden charged Rosh and stabbed him, mortally wounding him, though he died later on in Kyle's arms. Alora spoke up, tempting him to join Tavion and her cause. Jaden refused and killed Alora. He, then, traveled to Korriban where the rest of the Jedi Order had journeyed to stop Tavion. Once he arrived, Jaden attacked two fellow Jedi Knights and killed them. From then on, every Jedi Jaden saw attacked him, as well as all the Dark Jedi. When Jaden made it down to the Valley floor, and arrived at the tomb of Ragnos to find Tavion trying to resurrect Marka Ragnos. Jaden fought Tavion, killing her as she tried to use the scepter on him. At that moment, Kyle Katarn entered the tomb and spoke to Jaden, but Jaden refused to listen. Jaden and Kyle faced off, but Jaden used the scepter to bring down part of the tomb ceiling on Kyle, trapping him. Jaden escaped, leaving Kyle for dead only to have Luke come in and help Kyle out of the rubble. Jaden left Korriban and headed up to the orbital Imperial fleet where Jaden assumed command of the fleet, after killing the admiral, and jumped into hyperspace.
