You can beat every enemy by rolling around on the floor, some blocking and some hitting when the AI is too slow and confused to figure out the position of the player character. Anyone with half a brain can figure out the AI in less than five minutes and after that you're just flying through the game.

You're contradicting yourself. First you say that you can beat most enemies just by button mashing, now you say that dodging, blocking and timing your attacks is necessary.

No contradiction to be seen anywhere.
Most enemies in Risen 2 are cannon fodder and you can simply click them to death (button-mashing). And every enemy (i.e. even the high level ones) can be defeated with little effort by using cheap hit and run tactics.
There is certainly not much skill involved and no need to make use of some of the neat skills in the game. Dirty tricks for example are plain unnecessary. PB unfortunately missed the chance to make combat more interesting even though they chose to provide the tools for more variety.
Thanks to the retarded AI, however, you will only ever need the left mouse button, the roll-dodge button and the kick button for the giant crabs.
The game lacks the typical measure vs countermeasure approach to combat that would ideally make every skill useful and meaningful. That potential was completely wasted by poor AI and mechanics.

There are a few enemies that can be defeated by just button-mashing. Most enemies cannot because most enemies don't remain stunlocked for long.

Fine. We have very different interpretations of the terms "few" and "most" then. My experience has been that the vast majority of enemies in Risen 2 can in fact simply be clicked to death. Only humanoids, crocs, firebirds and jaguars/panthers require a bit of the (lame and boring) hit/evade/yawn/hit/evade/yawn/hit/evade/yawn "tactics".

On the bright side, at least you're putting some effort into your posts again. Your trolling efforts had been pretty half-hearted as of late.

ya think?!!1?? ya wont mii 2 trollz ur a$$ bettah homie?!?
