Star Wars: Jedi Knight (series)
The Jedi Knight series is a series of games made by LucasArts. The games are all first-person shooters. They follow the story of the mercenary and later Jedi Kyle Katarn. The player controls Katarn in all of the games except Jedi Academy.
The games are mostly about fighting. They have lots of shooting combat where the player fights enemies with blasters and other weapons that shoot projectiles. Starting in Jedi Knight, Kyle begins to learn The Force and gets a lightsaber, which is a type of sword made out of energy. When Katarn uses the lightsaber, the game can go into third-person mode where the camera follows Katarn from behind so the player can see Katarn fighting with his lightsaber. Once Katarn learns the Force he starts to be able to use Force powers to do things like push people and heal himself.
