I LIKE your second point, actually. Your party members will NEVER initiate an attack if you don't attack FIRST. They're like mindless sheep, following your lead without question. Which is just as they should be. (:
Well, I thought about that too but at the same time, they could have made the AI a bit more complex and let them make SMART decisions and do stuff like attack while the enemy is focused ON YOU.
I guess things would have been far too hectic if you could issue attack commands.
They kind of worked well in OZ/The Sword of Etheria though where you could tell your party members to attack or follow you in real time. :D Granted, I think you could target specific enemies in that game.
But it still could have worked for SEVEN since you set the attack priority (like go after weakest, etc.) in the menu anyway so they won't be completely dumb and attack a different nearby enemy each time. ^^
Oh yeah, I complained about it the first time I played and I'll whine again: The stupid dungeon gimmicks like the damn roots in the Ancient Tree and flowers in the later dungeon feels kind of like a hindrance. They're so no brainer. It's "go to this spot, use item. Hooray". Like why bother? Give me fucking PUZZLES (like the light reflecting one) if you want to block my way with shit.
And the fact that there's always a damn little animation after each use of the item ... Ergh.
Got a few, the primary one being the immense amount if backtracking in the second half of the game. I mean one of the big complaints with Ys VI was the backtracking, and this game seems to have at least twice as much. Then they take away your warp points too. It felt like a way to pad the length of the game, and I do think it hurt the pacing.
My second annoyance had to do with material allocations. Specifically when in order to make a weapon or piece of armor, you need to farm for mats in a completely different area. This doesn't happen too often, but when it does

my complaint is mostly about the PSP system, I prefer controllers. after an hour of play orso I get cramps in my fingers. hopefully they will fix this with the PSP2. I tried those extra grip thingies, but they suck as well
due to these issues with the psp system, I quite suck at the game
