Currently, a lot of things about the combat maneuver system bug the hell out of me.
"Say, GM, I wanna grapple that guy!"
"Okay. You don't have Improved Grapple, so he gets an attack of opportunity aaaaand rolls a 1." *curses*
"Oh, right, I forgot. Well, do his buddies next to him miss me too?"
"No, they don't get to AO you."
"But...I'm not trained in this technique and it's happening right next to them. I'm not focusing on them with my sloppy maneuver attempt, I'm focusing on this one guy. Why does the guy I'm actually attacking get to AO me, but his bodyguards within arms reach don't?"
"Oh look, the wizard cast dominate person, fight's over! Moving on."
The whole system is just bonkers on close inspection.
And yet- the PF system is so much better than the 3.5 system.
