I played Pathfinder Kingmaker a lot, and it had turn based with pause....it was outright annoying to control the casters and all those special abilities.
When they finally implemented the turn based combat it was way more comfortable to control the party members with their different spells and abilities. Sure...there are a lot of fights where just clicking and let the autoattacks do the job, but there are a lot where the oponents are harder and so it was more important to be able to use turn based.

The implementation in Kingmaker is done realy fine, with a switch to always be able to toggle turn based on and off.
