So what you're saying is that bad games can be bad despite having combat. Which isn't really the point of this discussion.

Tetris isn't an RPG, so it doesn't pertain to this discussion either. I can enjoy many types of games, but games that claim to be RPGs where the combat is ripped out to be replaced by something else tend to be problematic.
