But the game is about environment interaction. Of course the combat is geared that way. So what if there's hazards abounding? I'm in a city under seige, there better be dangerous stuff scattered about.

Frankly, I'm glad it's this way. I don't want combat to be completely dependent on my to-hit value or completely dependent on how much scenery there is to hide behind. I think it's a great combination, and the game is totally worth the money I paid.

But I know some people don't like it that way. I understand your points. This is really a your-mileage-may-vary game. (Especially with bugs. I haven't seen a one.)
