errr I don't think that was what he had in mind.
What you just described were moves straight out of the game manual more or less.
What Jawa meant were combos that are not obvious, like pull+throw+kicks and rage+DFA's for example.
Academy does have a few but they are very primitive when compared to some of the things that could be done in Outcast.
When I play FFA in Academy, level 3 Rage+FBS (flying back stab) with the double sabers just flat out dominates.
Rage at level 3 protects me from random shots from all of the idiots playing "roll and poke" and I can just FBS my little Jedi heart away.
