I think most people want RTwP because of the immersion and feeling of beeing "in the fight". Like in Dragon age Origins, you pause, or take turns as much as you like. but it feels more like a fight than TB DO:S ever did.
also TB limits you to like only fight 5 enemies at a time due to the time it would take for big battles. When will we see battles like the start of DA:O again?

TB is OK, just not as immersive and cool!
