I did the opposite and left Pathfinder the time to stabilize since it's a much more complex and time-demanding game. The issues in Encased are not blocking and easier to forgive.
I don't think it's been calculated like that, at least not in this case. I suspect many developers, even seasoned ones, are not able to limit the scope and get carried away, then realize it's time to finish and are overwhelmed.
In Encased, it's really the matter of writing more quests and dialogues, everything else is already in place, they wouldn't have designed complete locations knowing they'd be under-used.
I wouldn't put it past them in AAA games, however.
