IMO normal FPs (doesn't matter in SM or HM) are about the same as the KDY:
Go in -> smash trash -> smash boss (Healer has to heal) -> smash next trash -> smash boss -> smash even more trash (-> if hm, maybe smash bonus boss) -> smash final boss
All FPs are built the same, with the exception of colicoids (lets hope for a hm version of this
), where you first have the turret event and then there is the puzzle, all others have a predefined route which you go down. it's always the same.
So the KDY isn't "unimaginative" to me.
