The only RTWP experience I had that was decent was KOTOR 1 and 2, and even that was a bit frustrating at times. For the most part, the cue up system worked, and I did enjoy some element of fast paced combat. Still, it wasn't great.
I agree completely. And the only reason it was relatively ok is that there is a very limited number of abilites you can take and use, almost no variety in the types of characters you control (gameplaywise), so you don't have to micromanage everything like in the more dndesque RTWP games. The moment it becomes more complex is the moment the game turns into a cumbersome drag. At least for me.
