This is a "Force Power that has shown up in pretty much every Star Wars game ever where you fight with a lightsaber.

Basically, depending on how the attack is designed for the game, the lightsaber's wielder can through his lightsaber and then later retrieve it using the Force to guide both his aim when he throws it as well as to call it back into his hand. Some games have even given players the ability to move the saber around while it is in flight, but this is a little less common.

There are only two moments in the Star Wars films were anyone actually throws their lightsaber, in Revenge of the Sith when Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda are fighting their way into the Jedi Temple toward the end of the film (Yoda throws his lightsaber and it spears a clone trooper through the chest) and in Return of the Jedi in the middle of the duel between Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader (Vader throws his saber, which cuts through the supports for the walkway Luke is standing on).
