LOL, I tried, dude. Towards the end, when I knew that I was 80-90% finished, I experimented with it. Just couldn't make it work for me, given how I play. I'm glad its a cool tool for others. If/when I eventually do a second playthrough, I'll try more from the early parts. I actually feel that the story was exceptional, but I understand both that we all have our own preferences, and that some people play a much wider variety of games than I do. So my own comparrisons come from a smaller pool. For me, the final battle wasn't tedious, as much as it was something I felt I "figured out" pretty quickly. What had become my default first attempt at beating large enemies worked to a tee, and I defeated it on the first try, but not easily. Kind of just right for my skill level.
