Boys, repeat after me: "an RPG is more than just a combat system!" Yay! That said, 20 points really isn't that much as far as I remember. Maybe I just suck at shooting, but I had a reasonable challenge with Mass Effect, even with spending my points and using my powers (which are more fun than shooting, anyway). I guess your mileage may vary.
