Ur Dying at one of the first encounters and u mean the Game isnt well balanced? Really?
He was not complaining about dying, he was complaining about a perceived bug that an enemy which should be petrified was still using an attack of opportunity. Bugs like these are not an issue on tactician as you just reload the game, meanwhile on honor mode they can be literally game breaking.
Now the save game issue may or may not be a bug. It might be intended that way or not, but either way it seems not very well explained at which points you will end up with no return. Though I think in this case it was not a bug, but rather an intentional save to force you to play the fight ... even if you are just running away.
