Disagree. Being beat in a game and having to go back to the start of the area is frustrating, when there's no auto save, a la Neir. But that frustration is healthy. And wanting to avoid that frustration is what makes combat so incredibly tense.

Needless frustration at controls, etc, is bad. But sometimes games should frustrate us and make us want to throw the controller at the wall.
