And likewise, I draw issue with your second paragraph. You're correct that you can do all of those things, but does that actually enhance gameplay when you're dealing with combat systems that support only the most rudimentary AI? How does quickly fixing every mistake you make make for more compelling gameplay when the AI can't do the same? One of the chief complaints about the games you listed is that they were piss easy; the same can't be said about the Gold Box games.

Yea I think it does enhance gameplay. Straight turn-based, while in general I have no problem with it, once you know how everything works combat generally ceases to be a challenge. You know how to deal with each unit and make your moves accordingly. In a real-time with pause situation it is a lot more dynamic and things can happen that aren't necessarily predictable.

Planescape Torment is real-time with pause. That's what I expected when I backed the Kickstarter. And looking at the comments on the Kickstarter page, I'm not alone in feeling this way. There really shouldn't be any vote on it at all. But if they want to do Turn-Based, they need to do both.

My guess is the only reason they are even putting this up as an option is because it will be easier and save them a lot of time and effort if they can just use the turn-based combat system they have already programmed for Wasteland 2.
