Yeah, I agree. Some games are nice with the touch controls, but others make you do actions with the touch controls that you could easily do at the click of the button.. it should just be an option (either touch or click x)
That's one thing multiplatform games have : they don't ruin their games with bad gimmicks.
Even the Vita ports have some touch screen silliness. Take P4G, for example. Touch isn't implemented for things like menus where it might make sense, but you have this silly "touch here to 'rescue' someone'" gimmick while in the dungeons.
