Most RTwP* seems to give me control of the pause button and how often I use it, if at all. Currently playing Greedfall which uses the same system and it works well enough. The only real problem is me: I'm hasty, impatient and kinda rubbish at combat in whatever form it's presented.
* that I've encountered, I mean.
Yes exactly. In RTwP I as the player have full control over when and how often I want to pause, whereas in TB the game is forcibly pausing the game for me out of my control. I cannot even begin to wrap my head around why anyone would want to cede this control of their game to the game system. But apparently choosing to pause the game yourself is a problem, but the game forcibly pausing even if you don't want it to do so is wonderful.
