The thing is that powergaming has an impact on the tone of the game. Like how fighting the Orcs is tense because you can’just wade through them, but have to be careful about your approach. Adding a mechanic that makes this possible takes away the tension, especially when that mechanic gives you power through tensionless grinding, because an opponent that you could rip apart, but choose not to, is less intimidating than an enemy that you have to fight the hard way.
