Instead, all that matters in 90% of the missions is how fast you can dash towards the final point. Most often the way to do that is the ignore everything mentioned above...

It's a flaw that irked me. If I decide to methodically move forward and eliminate any hostiles, secure any points to prevent their retreat, eliminate their leaders and avoid any casualties, I'm apparently doing a bad job compared to someone who just rushes past every enemy and captures the final point.
I agree with you totally. My second playthrough is being myself and doing it the way I want to rather than the way that I had to to get A's in missions.

I also didn't like how the easiest way to get an A in some missions is to solo it with Alicia. I know she's badass as all hell, but even the truly badass need backup and support.
