One thing that bothers me more than the one of TB/RTwP I'm not so keen on (and there's little point in saying which) and that's the very significant focus on which method of combat will be implemented. Is BG really just about the combat? If that's the case, I'm not sure what to feel about it.
Isn't this a shortcut ? Of course it's not only, but it's an important part of the gameplay such in every RPGs whatever the way it work. Combat system is a huge part of the gaming expérience.
