Based on the popular computer games and the illustrated novels by William Dietz, this is an enjoyable trilogy spun from the fabric of the LucasArts machine. The story concerns Kyle Katarn, an Imperial officer who defects to the Rebel Alliance to fulfill his Jedi destiny. Sound quality is superb, even if the music and sound effects are borrowed from the original films and the acting is at times trite. Randal Berger, who plays Katarn, has a somewhat annoying voice more suited to a teenage beach movie than to intergalactic conflict. Nevertheless, Star Wars fans will enjoy this program and appreciate guest appearances by familiar characters like Luke, Leia and Han Solo.
