Action RPGs can sort of get away with it because it's pretty physically impossible to control 3 characters in real time. But for a menu based RPG to offer no way to control your teammates outside of when you're about to die or something it just sucks.
I don't really see how you would be able to control your other team member without halting the gameplay and killing the pace of the battles though.
Btw I thought the combat system felt a lot more involved than FF XII (which I loved). I don't really understand the comparison with Dragon Age, they're completely different kind of rpg in term of battle system.
