Definitely not a deal breaker, but it REALLY would hamper my enjoyment of the game significantly. It's a big thing to me.
However, handling a larger cast of companions DOS2-style is very much a deal breaker for me. Especially with companions having set classes, and that way of handling companions going completely against how I play games.
