Generally what I think tactics is comes down to three approaches.
I´d say the difference is in the extent of general hand holding, not just combat.
Difficult puzzles, complicated map layouts, resource management, no quest markers, etc.

When it comes to "new" cRPGs, combat is actually very, very often the only aspect where developers attempt to challenge players (picking "utterly impossible!" difficulty is usually required).
