Turn-based has to be really good to be fun. Poor RTwP will always be substantially more fun than poor turn-based.

Combat in a turn-based game can really drag along and becoming extremely boring (hence the term "trash mobs"), but in a RTwP or even a real time game, that is seldom the case in my experience.
