A \par should almost always go at the end of a group where \huge or the other size
changing declaration is present, otherwise there will result a big mess in line spacing.

There aren't because size changes are usually inappropriate in running text and
should be used only inside environments or as arguments to commands, properly
protected by groups in order to delimit the action of the declaration.

To change the aspect of section headings, use the package titlesec.
