I think adding full telekinesis to the game would be very, very complicated.
But we can already push and pull powerups. I guess you could expand that to specially-tagged objects, like boxes, etc.
As for being able to force jump out of a pit like Obi-Wan, you just need some code to the effect of "if the player is in midair or ledge-grabbing, and force push/pull used by the player will have the opposite effect on the player." That way, you could just force pull yourself up, which would be sorta like a force jump.
It's not telekinesis or Force Flight (which would be awesome), but it's the easiest solution I think.
