The shoulder buttons work fantastically with a two-handed combat system. Once you get used to it you'll be fine.
Why? Because **** you is why.

TC please explain to me your problem with the controls. Not being a jerk, I just honestly want to know what you find unplayable.
If you build your shop in front of an arrow trap, sometimes you are going to get shot by an arrow.

I keep honestly pushing square to fight (Ive been playing JRPG's nearly most of my life) That's all I ever play. my friend suggested hey, get this game, its hard but fun. I thought why not. Also, the targeting button being R3 is so clunky too. I'd much rather have it be L1 or L2, and have my parry Guard moved to triangle circle. Im just used to your combative moves being on the X [] () /\, not L1/L2/R2/R1 if that makes sense. and its not that im terrible at the game or "not getting it" Im just really used to these controls. reaaaaally used to them :S

Ah, okay. That actually makes sense.

my current games I'm playing are...
Kingdom hearts 3ddd
Tales of the abyss 3ds
Persona 4 Golden
Fire Emblem

so that should give you an idea of where I'm coming from control wise.

So, your problem is that you don't have to claw to have fluid camera control while fighting? What's your gameplan for the Invader that's running from behind you for the backstab if you can't easily manipulate the camera to view all areas? Stand perfectly still and get sniped by a spell while you try to look around?

Yes, I am a funny person. Harhar.

The controls take a bit of getting used to if you're used to other styles, I guess.

Just rough it out for a bit.

You're too early in to really have an idea, imo.
