yeah, it makes me think its more like a fail-safe so you don't keep practicing something way wrong over and over. personally, I like it.

Also I got the feeling that RS had as much "game" in it, as it had "practice tool". The lives and "missed too many" notes, was like health in an FPS game. You had to beat the baddies to get to the end. There was some "game grinding" to get through some parts of RS.
They are slowly taking the forced "game" components out, and making it more of a practice tool
I don't think that is a bad thing.
I agree with "...its more like a fail-safe so you don't keep practicing something way wrong over and over ", the old saying is that 'Practice makes perfect' but it also holds true that 'incorrect practice leads to bad habits' which are much harder to correct. In the 'Old days', piano teachers used to sit there watching you practice with a wooden ruler in hand, ready to "rap" your knuckles if your posture or the way you held you hands were wrong, I believe that, although it's annoying, being forced to start over in RS is waayy better than a sharp 'rap' or two, won't you say ? I also "wish I could loop a section I designate rather than what the dev's block out and wish I could play the entire song at a slower speed."

I second the thought,..'I don't think that is a bad thing.'
