What I don't get is why Larian so stubbornly refuse to address this issue. Is it some kind of misguided sense of pride?
I sincerely believe that it wouldn't require that much effort from Larian to improve the movement Mechanic in to something that at least resemble modern gaming standards when it comes to control.

And I know Solasta is a bad word here. But i just tried out BG3 after playing through Solasta. And damn... BG3's crappy party controls is even more noticeable now.
I simply can not believe that the developers think that the current system is fine. I simply can not. Maybe they are working on ways to improve it but just doesn't have anything to show yet. Or they will save it for the finished version of the game.
