I share your sentiments. I never liked the one-on-one nature of fighting games, but the one-on-thousands nature of Ninety-Nine Nights left me unsatisfied too, partially because when the time came for a boss fight against one character, the combat didn't like it fit the situation, but mostly because seeing 50 people simultaneously die gets repetitive.
What is your favorite melee game?
