Have you not tried The Temple of Elemental Evil? You're really missing out if you haven't. Imagine that kind of combat in Baldur's Gate. It's the kind of awesome too good to ever happen. I think your ignorance of the rules of old school D&D are another reason why you think the current style of combat is acceptable. While it's good enough, it's hardly great.
