But having said that, I think this could add an interesting level of strategy, but I wonder... at what point would you rather block than attack?

When the enemy attacks kill you before you can kill the enemy? Isn't that kind of obvious? You have two people in the back row who can still DPS while shields up front tank.

What's obvious, to me, is that if a block option was available, it would just pump up (temporarily) the evasion value, since that is what a block is in game already...

If it were a damage reduction, at 100%, it would be overpowered (why would you ever use your first two chars if blocking stopped all damage)... if it were less, it would have to be 50% or higher so that a fight taking twice as long doesn't have the same resulting damage.
