And saying Morrowind doesn't involve player reflex is slightly disingenuous. Stats control "to hit" but once speed and athletics skills rise (inevitable) they factor into combat as player skill.
What are you disagreeing with? I was just trying to lead folks to see that the term "action rpg" has been so diluted by the gaming press to be pretty much meaningless.
