or does that not fit in with your exceptionally narrow world view?

Roguelikes are specific type of games. So yeah, it's a narrow game genre. I don't have a problem with it.

IIRC Baldur's Gate being real-time was only because it was first supposed to be a strategy game. As an RPG I think it would only have benefited from going turn-based. The game should test the reflexes of the character, not the player.
