Anyone else sad they never fully utilized Lightning's gunblade gameplay-wise?

Umm.........so are we just ignoring how Light uses her gunblade at the end of every 4 attack chain. -____- Is that what we're doing.

"Fully utilize" =/= attack animation we have no control over.

There are no moves except during the chapter 7 fight that we can consciously choose to use the gun part of the blade. There are no gameplay mechanics which make use of it. There are no special attacks. There is nothing but a single animation later on in the game (it's at the end of a 5/6 attack combo) for the gun part of the blade.

At least VIII had a "Timed hit" which played into the gameplay.
