Ummm, since we're talking about the game and it's balance, you have to care
about the stats. ^_^

Yes, and that's why his mental state is Normal instead of Weak like
Shinji's. Though Shinji grows up a lot in the game...

Moot point, because Shinji can only pilot one mech in the game...

Well, before you bash the game, do consider the immense amount of series's
whose power they needed to balance...I think they did a pretty good job of
creating a playable game. Of course, I have problems with it as well, but I
think on the whole it was done quite well.

Edmund, help me out here! ^_^ Although seeing as he doesn't really like EVA

If you use Hot Blood and your morale is high enough, yes. If not, the AT
Field will stop it.

Technically, the AT Field should stop almost anything cold, considering the
energy needed to breach it is something on the order of 100,000,00 kilotons
of energy...

Gunbuster is only one size larger than EVA.

I'm not saying I'm not passionate about EVA, I'm saying I'm not a wild
fanboy who ignored people's opinions and argues without evidence. I'm sure
that at least you can agree with. ^_^
