    Not really - if the robot itself is good enough, you won't really care
about the pilot's stat, other than the "magic" selection that pilot has.
E.g. Nobody really care what stats Noriko has - Gunbuster can kick the enemy

    Overall, they are trying very hard to make Gundams and Aura Battlers
weaker and other Super Robots stronger, because there are a lot of people
out there who can just use Gundams or Aura Battlers to beat the game (I
remember using just Aura Battlers to beat 4SRW, along with Amuro). In SRWA,
my friend only upgrade the top 4 Gundam pilots and he beat the game without
too much trouble...

    Trust me - EVA is really stretch the "creditability" of SRW series
because AT field and the weapons it has has gotten too powerful - most
beginners and just use them and probably survive pretty long in the game.
They try to do something in SRWA, but I feel they can do more...

    Or if you have Dancougar, just have high enough morale can probably get
through AT Field...

    And it's probably not as big as Ideon...

    I am sure Mr Zhou and I can think of somebody that's hard to "convince",
right ^_^

    Actually, V's story is better than ZZ Gundam overall, after you get used
to the "cheesiness" of the beginning episodes of V...
