But the majority of the feats that I find useless are not going to be useful in most campaigns. Galley slave is a good example. It might be useful in Skulls and shackles. Or a naval based campaign. Out of that not so much. Craft Ooze is so terrible I would not take it even if given for free by the DM.
Whether a feat is useful can vary greatly from campaign setup to campaign setup ...
Because even "useful" is being generous to that feat. "Applicable," is more appropriate. As in "this feat doesn't do anything at all unless it is a naval campaign, and in those cases the feat is still objectively worse than skill focus, and it was printed in the Taldan book, not the SnS players guide, not even the Cheliax companion, AND it pidgeonholes you into a role play background that doesn't square with the bonus granted by the feat."
