I should rely on these scripts, they're gonna work all the time (false conclusion); I don't have to learn the rules, the game implies this with its preset scripts (false conclusion); The Idea of conditional framework, which is preset imply that I don't have to/shouldn't change its scripts??
It's not as simple as "true" or "false".
Let's say you're playing a new RPG, with new mechanics you're not familiar with. You've managed to play 20 hours of it without doing much of anything yourself other than clicking a knockdown ability with a cooldown occasionally. After all, why do more? It works, right?
OK, now you've finally hit a battle that requires more than that. Your guys are dying, you're not winning. Maybe you try to take control now...or maybe you just cast a bunch of buffs and try again and this time it works. Or maybe you bring in a different party member and this time it works. Or maybe you just gulp down a bunch of potions during the battle and otherwise let the game continue playing itself, and it works. Because you don't WANT to fucking control everything yourself now. The game played itself fine up until now, why change? You're going to do the minimum necessary to keep that dynamic going on.
