But in the old canon (before Disney bought the rights to Star Wars and decreed the Expanded Universe as non-canon) those plans were stolen by perhaps the most famous Jedi outside the movies: Kyle Katarn. In fact, you do just that right on the first level of Dark Forces (which was basically the demo).
