I hear what you are saying, you feel like they've somehow spent valuable time on aspects of the game you dont feel are critical. And hey, thats your perrogative
After reading a vast number of threads and posts on similar subjects I feel that the main reason why the game was released in the state that it was, is due to insufficient time being allocated to test the finished product. I dont blame the testers, or the developers for this at all, only the timetable set for release. I know alot of testing has gone on for a long time and by a lot of people. But it seems that once the game had gone "gold" there wasnt much time to test at all.
Somewhere there is a technical project manager that either a) didnt get his way from the "suits" when it came to testing the final product.
b) didnt plan enough time to test the final product.
I may of course be entirely mistaken
