DDD does it a tad worse imo. Since you get from Julius who is a boss you can only unlock AFTER completing the story (like CoM). Then again I HATE doing the board games and races in BBS to unlock the Ultima Weapon which isn't even the best weapon in the game.Meh, I feel the opposite. I don't like how BBS or DDD did the Ultima Weapon because you get them for clearing some of the hardest enemies as it is. At least when you synthesize it you can level grind simultaneously and train for the superbosses more all at the same time. And then use it to actually help defeat them. It just feels better to me. If they did some other way to get it where that is still possible, I guess I would not mind. But I really don't find synthesize in KH1 or 2 to be that bad compared to some other JRPGs.
