Don't usually do this, but frack it.

What that actually means in the canon that the primitive Massassi people considered him a god, not that his powers actually fit such a description.

As a young Jedi Knight, Kun exhibited a powerful connection to the Force. Through long practice, he had achieved unparalleled prowess in lightsaber combat.
Right, because no other Sith Lord in history has fit that description (Revan, Bane, Palpatine, Anakin/Vader, Krayt...).

Kun was able to create terrifying creatures twisted by the dark side's influence...
And Palpatine didn't?

...drained the life-force of almost the entire Massassi race, transcending his own mortal body...
Kinda reminds me of Darth Nihilus, the Sith Emperor Vitiate, Palpatine (the Force draining), and Palpatine again (spirit transference).

Kun's power in the Force became extraordinary. He had a strong Force sense, the ability of Force Flight, and was capable of emitting Force Blasts from his hands that could crumble stone walls and kill Sithspawn with a single hit.
Again, why are you implying that other Sith haven't had such abilities?

Oh, and by the way why don't you go and fight/kill a lion with a pen instead of a sword? Politic is a twisted game made by the degraded human brain and in the end "caesar" fears the general and his soldiers, they represent the raw power, as it is in the nature.
Well, for starters, you don't go and kill a lion with a pen (not in a one-on-one confrontation, anyway) because if you're smart you have more than a pen at your disposal.

Your personal distaste for politics is irrelevant; that Exar Kun brute-forced his way to the top of a single civilization of savages does not place him on nearly the same level of achievement as Palpatine, who (aside from essentially killing the old Jedi Order) dominated the majority of the known galaxy with few people even knowing his rule wasn't legitimate, or Revan, who built a power base for himself within the Republic military and Jedi Order such that he was able to pull off a mass-defection and conversion into Sith. Or that Revan's and Palpatine's rises clearly demonstrated in them enough skill to kill with the pen or the sword, which is more than can be said for Kun.
