Absolutely, but they should be kept minor and be used to separate melee skills, not be generically added for "cool effect". Using too much of an effect is the easy way out for uninspired or time-constrained developers. Proper sound effects paired with well-tuned animation, target reaction and on-hit effects like blood goes a long way.
