I sort of agree and sort of don't. There is a sweet spot. BF2 had a decent balance with that sort of thing, except for maybe with the sniper rifles (though coincidentally still my prefered class).
On the one extreme you get no physics and you have crappy gameplay and a harsh learning curve where things like macros and scripts give players an even bigger, unfair advantage a la Counter-Strike. On the other extreme, you have a game that is so realistic that it's too complicated to actually kill somebody without significant practice, a la the sniper rifle in BF2. There is a nice mixture inbetween that should be sought in games - or at least games should come with the option to mix the realism based upon predetermined server settings.
