Forgot to mention- another advantage of lunge on reach builds is that you can full attack anything in a 45' wide circle. So that can also boost your effective damage, since it would not be too hard to get those attacks in.
Oh, and for solving key fighter (and most martial character) problems- Half elves are a great race choice. They have an alt trait that gives them +2 to will saves, and elven immunity gives them +2 against enchantments. So that, some wis, and maybe iron will would be enough to protect you from dominate spells.
The new mutagen warrior is also an archetype to consider. It lets you keep weapon training, and gives you an alchemist's mutagen on top of it, so great damage potential. It also gives you access to the wings discovery at level 7. Flight is always fantastic.
