Looking at your playthrough so far. You'll need time to build towards a better experience since Link needs more equipment and health and stamina boosts to get better over time.
Though, I do understand this alien feeling when it comes to the controls.
Honestly, I'd say that most of what you're experiencing right now we'll be better later on as you obviously get more accustomed to the different mechanics.
Otherwise, maybe you'd like Skyward Sword or Twilight Princess better if you're into more heavy narrative type of game.
BOTW doesn't hold your hand much long in that department.
