First let me say that I work for a commercial data-recovery company.
My guess is that we would be able to recover most of your data, so if
you really, really value your data, feel free to send it to us (or a
competitor if you want, but I doubt that they have as much experience
with Linux as we do.)
You could try to do an fsck with an alternative superblock. That should
work, but could make matters worse. So here in the lab we'd make an
image of that partition before we would try such a thing....
