The first game was so bland and boring. It had a few good humorous moments but it felt so 'artificial'. If you didn't have the context of the creator literally crying at E3 it would seem like the most inhuman product imaginable. Bland writing, ESPECIALLY bland music and a fairly repetitive set up. Good gameplay though. I think it says a lot that most of the discussion online is still about how "surprising it was that it was decent" and not whether or not it's actually a great game.

It had a very good foundation but the most bland structure was ressurected on top of it. This game would have to be at least 1.4x better to be worth a damn.

No, it wasn't just decent, it was a damn good SRPG game. Did you expect a crossover between Rabbids, who communicate only in screams, and Mario characters to have a rich and nuanced story? If so, I think the problems lied with your expectations.  

No, I expected the game to be interesting. Instead what we got was a bland ass soundtrack, a pitiful roster in the base game, and a structure that sets in repetiton fast. If anything, the game actually tries to be more story centric than I would have ever expected, and if you're going to do that you could at least try to make your story interesting (note: interesting does not mean pretentious, complicated, or even conventionally well written). 

Again the gameplay is good - it's actually much better than any of the post Fates FE games in that regard - but the game is simply dull as shit. It does a few quirky things in the beginning that work and hours later those same things are the tricks it's still hiding up its sleeve.
