I have seen people do some great saber attacks, but I can't find any info on how to do them.

In this game, there is a variety of hidden moves for the player to discover while wielding the Lightsaber in general is a great tool, and the game developers did a supreme job of showing off what it really is supposed to do. Its a laser, plain and simple, you don?t have to swing to hurt someone, just walk up, and poke they're ass. Its that simple. Anyway, they incorporated a variety of extra moves and such, that.. well.. can just make the player look good.
Jump-Crouching This is a move thats in the classic premiere game, Half-Life, As getting up those pesky crates, you had to jump, then crouch to lift Gordan's legs up. The same thing can be done in Jedi-Knight II, and i found that you have to Learn the technique to actually get through 1 or 2 parts of the Single Player Game. To Do this, you basically Jump, Then hold crouch and your character will pull his legs up, although it doesnt look like much, you can actually reach, quite a bit higher than you'd expect, Half-Life gamers will know Exactly what im talking about, We Love you Barney & Gordon, your both badasses.
Saber Throwing Trick A Bit of a complex move, where you need saber throw + Force Speed, you simply turn toward your opponent, they need to be about 5-10 feet infront of you (saber throwing distance) from there, you throw your saber at them directly, and then turn on force speed, and run past not only your saber, but them aswell, now turn and if they follow you, your saber comes and hits them in the back while they turn, if you want to get even more devilish, try force pushing them into your saber.
is a simple attack, when your opponent is behind you, and ONLY when your opponent is behind you, you can tap back+attack to spin your saber around and slice at him, this attack is almost impossible to block ive found out, and on top of that, its Overly powerful, Ive almost found myself trying to get people to follow me just so i can backstab! *****NEW***************** Charging Lunge Slash Wow, what a powerful move! just run forward, and while in the red stance, attack, and as your character brings the saber down over his head, hit jump as the saber comes down, Your character will slice part of the first slash (which, by the way, can still injur your opponent) and then he leaps forward with a heavy slash. Cool move. it can be avoided by a bit of strafing, and if your opponent knows to to evade, expect him to counter-attack while your pulling yourself back up.
Spin-Slashing A Rather simple technique, It can only be done if your in the Blue or Yellow Stance, basically, Hold Forward OR backword, and a Strafe, this creats 4 different Spin attacks, The spin attack is generally MUCH stronger then a basic one, and allows you to move, beyond that, it looks ****ing cool.
Running Up a Wall Yes, you can run Up a wall, this is done by simply charging at a wall, and tapping jump as you touch, your character will run up it, and flip backwords, Note that you can also control how far your character jumps back by holding back to jump further and holding forward, to jump less, this is useful for dogging out your opponent, and if your in the Red lightsaber position, turn your saber off, and run up a wall, then Attack with it as your coming down for a good Follow-up attack.
KickFlipping off a wall Yes, you can do this too, not from forward though, only run up a wall, To Flip up a wall, simply Strafe into the wall and tap jump, like above, and then hold left or right to determine the distance your character moves off the wall, another clever technique is to do this while being chased in a narrow hallway, and strike over your head as you flip. (added by Hatrus) this also can be used on an opponent to know then of their feet!)*
Flying Up a Wall Yes, you can do this too, its a combination of the above two techniques, you can Run WAY far up a wall, and it just looks ****ing cool, simply Run alongside a wall while strafing against it, then Jump and hold jump to literally scale the wall. A good technique is to Run way up a wall, and when your about to hit the ground, hold crouch so your roll out of it, not only does it look cool, its a good way to fake out your opponent.
Rolling A Very basic technique, yet, not very well used for how good it is, it serves as a speedup and a dodge utility, simply Crouch while running in 3rd person, any direction and your character can roll, If you roll against a downed Foe, your saber will roll against him, and damage him/her, a clever technique if you dont have time to slash.
Sword Shield A more Advanced Technique, and a bit harder to do, but you can fake out your sword, and make it circle around you for a long time, infinite if you get good enough, simply throw the sword, and as it comes back, begin to strafe left, then tap up, then strafe right, then down and start over, your sword will circle around you, and Yes, it still CAN hit people.
Running up your Opponent Yes, you can do this too. But you need a high level force Pull to do it, basically, you pull your opponent too you, and as he/she touches you, Jump, and your character will run up your foe, this not only looks badass, but if Floors your opponent, leaving him/her open to a lot of follow-up attacks if they dont speed get up.
Quick Get Up If you fall over, Tap jump a million times to Super-get up, if you have enough force, sometimes your character will get up in a cool fashion, such as spinning around matrix style, or something.
Spring Jump If you have lvl 2 or 3 Force jump, there is a way to get even higher, its called the spring jump, and basically, you get a running start, run forward, and Jump, HOLD jump, then let go of Forward Immediately, then Rehold it back down, instead of flipping, your character will hold out his/her arms, this looks SOooo cool, like Crouching/Hidden style, ya know?? But not only does it look cooler, it does infact grant you a VERY small ammount of extra Height, but also, it doesnt carry you as far forward.
Leap Attack Left/Right If you have lvl 2 or 3 Force jump, there is a way to do a leaping side attack, that looks very cool, its the same thing as above, but substitute forward with a Strafe key (ie: left or right) your character will leap up and stick his/her elbow out, looks kinda like Superman if you ask me, but Very cool none the less, What makes this effective, is you can also slash while your doing it, for a totally unique slash with each style, They all look badass and though probably very hard to connect with, it just looks cool.
Backflips More a Technique then a move, but just simply tapping back + jump and repeating as soon as you hit the ground, will look like cool handsprings in a way, you want to jump as low as possible here, so no force hoppin'
Flying Saber Slash Though listed, its kinda sketchy in the book, Basically, When in the Yellow stance, your character can perform a flying saber attack, this attack by far is one of the best looking in the game, and its a good fake out. *ONLY* can be done when a target is directly infront of you, tap forward+jump+attack, hold none down, your character will do a leap, spin around and attack in a head-swipe. It looks AWSOME.
Instant Kill This technique takes away 75-80 health a hit, its considered a finishing move and done just as the one above, but no opponent needs to be infront, it looks cool, your character flips, spins, and brings the saber down over his head. Oh, It can only be done if your in the Red stance, sorry.
Crouching Strike By far one of the most Usefull attacks in the game, and it can only be done if your in the Blue fighting stance, Basicly, you hold Crouch, then You tap forward and attack at the same time, your character will spring up, and bring his saber low to high, its hard to hit someone with unless they're charging you (hint hint) but if you do hit them, its a VERY good technique to use.
So were can I find out these moves?
