Paladins had different problems, but I'm also wondering how they'll work now that alignment is supposed to have no mechanical effect.
I liked how in DDO the Ranger got both weapon styles instead of choosing. That helped a little, though obviously it's not huge, and it's debatable whether the Ranger archetype actually requires archery and TWF.
