According to pre-release developer interviews, the game's protagonist Kyle Katarn was named after the Katarn Commandos, a team of renowned soldiers featured in several Star Wars-based books and comics and although his bio says he was a member of that team prior to the game's events, he has nothing to do with its name. The original idea was that the team was named after a widespread creature of the Star Wars world, named "Katarn", which is also featured on the team's insignia. See more
