Well, if you follow the "I fight, therefore I play a role" paradigm, then you are right.

To me, personally, role.playing games were just nothing but "extended adventure games" - and consequently I was frustrated by games with lots of combat and few riddles or interaction at all ("interaction" which consists of interactively chopping a monster's head off doesn't count here).
Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
