More Star Wars Trivia from the Original Expanded Universe!

Hello, Readers! As you know, my conversations with the girls at The Elven Padawan led me to check youtube to see if there were any videos about Star Wars‘ original timeline. Having found several valuable videos there, I thought I would to post them here at Thoughts, along with links to information about the original Star Wars Expanded Universe.

This should fill in the gaps in my own knowledge of this field, since I know a fair bit about the original Expanded Universe, but not as much as I’d like. Below you will find a number of links to Wookieepedia articles on the Jedi, smugglers, and bounty hunters mentioned in these videos. Anything not covered in the videos should be in the articles.

Enjoy discovering more about the original Star Wars universe, readers! Remember –

“The Force will be with you, always.”

Videos of Kyle Katarn

Hey, Readers! After several discussions with the girls over at The Elven Padawan, I was inspired to look up a number of videos about the original Star Wars Expanded Universe. Most of those videos will appear in later posts, but I thought these deserved to be shown first.

These videos are all “live-action cut scenes” from the video game Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II. They’re not entirely up to modern standards, I suppose, but they are nonetheless fascinating viewing. Someone on youtube collected them and put them together as a film, but I thought it would be easier on everyone to post the three different videos filled with cut scenes here today. That way you can stop and come back whenever you want to, readers. 😉

Based on these videos alone, I can see why Dark Forces II was such a big hit. Who wouldn’t want to play a game AND watch a film at the same time? It’s one of the reasons why I enjoyed playing Knights of the Old Republic so much – and that game was entirely CGI! It’s too bad Disney or some other company hasn’t refurbished or reshot Dark Forces. This game was a real gem.

But enough talk – you came here to see Kyle Katarn and Jan Ors face down the High Inquisitor Jerec over the power of the Valley of the Jedi. Have fun watching these videos, readers!

May the Force be with you!
