There is a community trying to make a movie with the story of one of the most epic game in the expanded universe.
The trailer was uploaded on YouTube more than 3 years ago: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DWYvTeBonRA
You can follow the project on their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/JediOutcastTheMovie/

Hope to see a release soon.

I like Jedi Outcast so much, but Kyle Katarn soon becomes boring since he is one of the most omnipresent characters in the expanded universe of Star Wars.
He was even involved in acquiring a partial set of plans of the Death Star in the legends continuity.
Nice to see such a project going on anyway.

As John Smith wrote, Kyle Katarn is the Chuck Norris of the old expanded universe of Star Wars.
If you don't like him that much, you will surely hate him with all your heart.
He has nothing to do with the Jedi teachings and their religion.
He simply carries and uses every kind of weapon without caring what's the elegant weapon for a more civilized age.

I remember there was a certain Obi-Wan Kenobi in Episode 1 - The Phantom Menace (1999 video game) who used blasters, missile launchers and thermal detonators. He also carried a load of Gungan energy spheres, the most powerful weapon against droids in that game.
Kyle Katarn was not the only character carrying a lightsaber and many other different weapons in the expanded universe.
This doesn't mean he cannot be a Jedi.

Luke: "I sensed a disturbance in the Force. I'll tell you about Desann while your trial is being prepared."
Kyle: "Trial?"
Luke: "A minor test to determine your fitness to wield a lightsaber again. Even in your relatively unpracticed state, you shouldn't find it too difficult."
Kyle: "Why can't you Jedi every do things the simple way?"
Luke: "If the ways of the Jedi were easy there would be millions of us instead of dozens."

You get the point: Kyle Katarn is no Jedi.
He's just a guy with a lightsaber and a few questions.

Rogue One killed Kyle Katarn, the bridge between the films and the first wave of truly great Star Wars games.

Rogue One is a great film, no doubt, but it wiped out part of the story of those great Star Wars games, now classified as legends.
