From what I've seen, the saber fighting is no more complex than before... just hack and slash and a lot of automatic combo stuff. I don't know how it plays out necessarily with the AI, apart from QTE sequences at times. Videos make it look like you just keep hacking away at the person's body until they run out of health and die.

As for online play, well, as with the first Force Unleashed, only the Wii has any "multiplayer" options. In the first one (on the Wii only) it was 1 on 1 saber dueling, with the style of gameplay the same as SP. You pick up power ups, pick up objects with the force and throw them and hack and blast each other with your force powers and saber until somebody dies, best 2 out of 3 or whatever.

In FU2, on the Wii, you can play with up to 4 people in a fight to the death, but it's a 2D style game, reminiscent of Super Smash Bros. not at all like single player. I don't think there's any clashing mechanics there either, it's just hack the person until they run out of health and die. Most points wins or elimination, or however it is handled.

As for whether you can do any of that online, I don't know.

But there's nothing resembling a Coop mode, or an interesting saber combat system that would make for duels as memorable as in the JK series even.
