See, it shouldn't be difficult to make the character do cool/nice things. That was one of the things Tome of Battle did really, really, really well. Anything in the book that was grabbed cause it looked cool was almost certainly just that, cool. Plus, it worked more or less the way you wanted it to 8-9 out of 10 times.
Of course doing cool/nice things shouldn't be hard.

Doing a lot of damage is not 'doing cool/nice things.
Doing decent damage is necessary. Doing optimised damage without optimisation is NOT.
if you're playing in a game where optimisation is necessary, why aren't you a wizard/cleric/druid?
