From there I think it comes the conception that a Soresu master is near invincible. It's really hard to defeat someone if in the end you join him.

People need to realize that Shien in some ways is a spinoff of Sorseu, it added the element of redirecting fire back at your opponents, Sorseu was used to develop Shien (along with a few other saber forms).

Well, in the Jedi Path book: it does say that the attacks of the Juyo form can eviscerate an opponent's defenses - Even the blocks of a Form III master.

Also I speculate that Makashi is a good form to use against Soresu as well - because of the mechanics of the style....
