The Continuing Frustration that is SaGa Frontier 2

Last time I posted about this game, I said I need to work around the horrid growing pains of SaGa Frontier 2. Well, I think I’m past that point, but I am having a difficult time getting into it. I’ve tried playing other games and coming back to it, but I am hard-pressed to maintain my enthusiasm for it. Which seems odd: I mean, the story’s interesting. Still, something’s not clicking. Maybe it’s all just a little too prosaic. Or maybe the frustration of learning the system just sucked all the fun out of it for me. Or maybe it’s just that the combat is still painfully not fun. I am trying to get myself to stick with this game, but I am really struggling to maintain interest.
