i think you missed the point of 0080.

it's not supposed to be a mecha slugfest, but a
character heavy little story to fill in on the facts
here and there. a story that doesn't get lost in too
many battle scenes.

that the mecha battles were short and sparse in
between made them even more endearing, to me.

doesn't blue destiny fall into this category?

if it's about making war looking unfunny, it's 0080
between the two shows. :P
