Cause there are only so many ways to make a bear riding a bear leading a bear army and shooting bears entertaining after awhile, and it's nice to want to pick up a different theme and actually have that option?

And dealing a lot of damage is nothing more then doing cool martial arts moves and then having them actually hit the mark and succeed in taking down the target. Which, in general, is part of what makes the moves cool and the sort of thing you want to do in general.
