All of this said, Power in Destiny 2 is still imperfect.

Yes it is. By virtue of the fact it exists at all.

Also… the RPG elements. I can't help but feel this is a fool's errand to try to bring these out. The game just isn't an RPG. It's an MMO FPS. In a real RPG, there are many paths to success beyond shooting. You can customize your character in Deus Ex to win by never firing a shot. But with the goal of the game being 'kill things quickly', there's basically just going to be one set of customizations that is optimal unless the game activities incentivize or allow other types of play. But when the game is built around playing things over and over as efficiently as possible to get gear…

I don't think it's going to work.
