Leaning, really? What do you need that for when you have the cover system?

Third-person cover systems are really overpowered. When you take cover in first-person, you sacrifice awareness for protection. In third-person, you sacrifice nothing. Without the balance of risk vs reward, taking cover ultimately becomes a shallow game mechanic. In DX:HR, third-person cover completely undermines some of the augmentations as well, like X-Ray vision and the Mark & Track aug. Not using the cover system and sticking with first-person significantly amplifies the intensity of taking cover and makes those augmentations much more useful.
While you do have a point the thing that pissed me off about the cover system is if you are standing, cover into a crouch (short object to hide behind) when you come out of the cover your now crouching. If I go into a cover in a specific stance I want to come out of cover in that same stance. To many times I fucking died because I wanted to sprint from cover but couldn't because I was crouching.
