MS Word insists on keeping lines of paragraphs together even after I turn off Widow/Orphan control. How can I stop this?

Formatting a thesis with specific formatting rules, and the rules care more about excess spaces than Widow/Orphan problems. There is clearly plenty of space at the bottom of some of my pages, as the reviewer noted, for another line or two and I cannot force Microsoft Word to let this happen.
It is double spaced, Palatino Linotype 12 point font, Office 2003 not Vista.
