Maybe because?

Is it because fatiquer is transitive ‘only’ and ‘must’ have an object, otherwise fatiguée here is an adjective?      Might be back to A level for me!

Glen, I think you have possibly already answered your own question.

 ‘Cette randonnée m’a fatigué. Je suis vraiment très fatigué! ‘ 

The first verb is the verb fatiguer, conjugated with avoir using the past participle fatigué, and the second is être followed by the adjective (adjectival past participle) ‘fatigué’.

Fatiguer, ‘to tire/to fatigue‘, conjugates with avoir in compound tenses, but to describe being in a state of tiredness or fatigue, it is être fatigué, in the appropriate tense or mood.
