I like having a CRB that's a strong baseline that doesn't need additional products.
This is especially nice to have when introducing new players to the game. The barriers to entry are already incredibly high, no need to make that problem worse by asking them to learn *multiple* hardcovers' worth of character options.
I disagree that new players *have* to learn multiple hardcovers. I'm currently running a game for 4 people new to the game using only the CRB, Bestiary, and the Inner Sea World Guide.
You can make the game as simple or as complicated as you choose. Don't let the books choose for you.
