Mercenary Kyle Katarn is recruited by the Rebel Alliance to recover the plans to the Death Star.

The game was released in a censored version in Germany. While the game itself remained unchanged, only the dialog was altered to remove any reference to killing. For instance, Kyle's blaster pistol was renamed as a stunning pistol, and extra dialog was added in the briefing for the first mission to point out that the player is required to stun enemies (which is not possible in both the uncensored and censored version). Although it received an 18 certificate, it was later indexed as the content was considered being too similar to Doom
(1993). Ironically, Doom
(1993) has been removed from the index in 2011 while 'Star Wars: Dark Forces', as of 2018, still remains there. See more
Jabba's dialogue when he speaks to Kyle before he is thrown in the kell dragon pit are samples from Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi
and originally meant something different in Huttese than what the subtitles in the game imply. See more
This Imperial officer, Crix Madine, wishes to defect to the Alliance. He has supplied us with information on the development of a new weapon... A new type of stormtrooper: the Dark Trooper.
[Kyle cocks an eyebrow, considering for a moment
A new type of stormtrooper that can take out a Rebel base that quickly? I should have kept working for the Empire.
