Players take the role of a new student to Luke Skywalker's Jedi academy on Yavin 4 named Jaden Korr. The story revolves around the sudden appearance of a Dark Jedi cult called "The Cult of Ragnos". Jaden becomes an apprentice to Jedi Knight's main character Kyle Katarn and battles with turning to the dark side.
At one point in the game the player can actually choose to turn to the dark side therefore giving the game two different possible endings.
The title screen of Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy shows Aurabesh characters in the background which, when translated, read the following:
"Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Academy Developed By Raven Software Published By Lucasarts Entertainment Company Features Create Your Own Jedi Tiered Level System New MP Game Siege New Sabers New Force Powers Arioch Terrain System New Enemies And more Coming Summer 2003 And yes this really does say something if you translate it."
Other changes from Jedi Outcast to Jedi Academy
Your character, Jaden, can be male or female and is customizable. For example, you can choose from several lightsaber and hair colors as well as from several species:
JediKnight: JediAcademy is the third game in the series, or, technically, the fourth if you count 1995's Dark Forces, which didn't bear the JediKnight name (and didn't let you use lightsabers or Force powers, either).
JediAcademy has an overall linear path, but you can mix this up to a certain degree.
Perhaps the best improvement in JediAcademy over JediKnight II is that it grants you your lightsaber and Force powers at the very start of the game.
As a Jedi Apprentice, the player is dispatched to accompany Kyle on various peace-keeping missions across the galaxy, many of which involve battling an emerging Sith cult known as the Disciples of Ragnos who are stealing Force energy from Force-rich locations across the galaxy.
Seeking to restore the Sith and destroy the Jedi, Tavion plans to resurrect the ancient Sith Lord Marka Ragnos by fueling his long dead body with a massive concentration of stolen Force energy.
Tionne is referred to by Luke Skywalker in a mission briefing as "the resident Jedi scholar".
