nope, I hate it too, I also can't stand when you see your sword, axe, spear etc... go right through the gut of the bad guy then you suddenly see the words "Miss" pop up. it goes straight through the guy and yet you missed? so damn anoying. I prefer games that let you fight in real time. that way if you lose it's because you actully suck not because you don't roll enough dice or whatever.
I HATE metaphorical rain.
