I have to disagree as well... I am loving the new mechanics and difficulty level. I would find any game boring that I never died playing, and a tank-and-spank fight could not be any less interesting to me. If the game is not a challenge, I potentially will lose interest quickly.
I play a Sage and there are some fights where at the end my heart is racing and it was very exciting! Add to this the Star Wars music building in the background and I think the new HM FPs rock.
That said, in a couple months when we are all geared up these will be a cake walk too... just in time for the next content release
