It looks to me like Crytek figured that they told Nomad's story, they told Psycho's story, so now they're telling Prophet's story (that's essentially what this is).
As for the game play being stupid: I thought so too at first, but I have made it through about 100 checkpoints in SP, and so I'm at a point now where I've really gotten to know the game very well. So what I'm saying is that while I thought it was stupid at first, it all makes perfect sense to me now which has enabled me to see that it's actually awesome.
As for middle-clicking to bring up the suit menu? That is no longer necessary. I haven't used it yet, and like I said before I've gone through at least ~100 checkpoints.
Here's why it's no longer needed: 'Q' is for Armor Mode, "E" is for Stealth (cloak mode), 'B' is for Visor Mode', 'C' is for customizing your weapon, and 'V' is for customizing the Nanosuit. Middle-clicking to access these functions is now obsolete. Plus, you can enable Power Mode to steady your aim by pressing Shift after you middle-click to bring up your weapon's sights. Try it with any weapon: start looking through your sights, and then hold down Shift (this also applies to Laser attachments!). I think you'll be pleasantly surprised by how strong the new Nanosuit is; it's especially apparent when you do this while looking through either an Assault Scope or a Sniper Scope - especially while standing.
It gets better than that, though: you can steady your aim with Power Mode while you are cloaked. You no longer need to jump out of cloak mode, enable Maximum Strength, and then fire. So while you are cloaked, right-click for your weapon's sights, then hold Shift for Power Mode in order to steady your aim, uncloak, fire, and then cloak again. This means you can take your time while cloaked making sure your aim is precise. Caution: suit energy is drained while holding Shift, so only hold it down when you need it.
So in other words: you can use the mode we know as "Maximum Strength" while in Stealth (Cloak) Mode in order to steady your aim. On top of that, you can use Power Mode for extra-deadly melees while you're cloaked or while you are in Armor Mode (just as long as you have enough energy to PERFORM a Power Melee).
This is what they mean by being able to combine suit modes!
However, that's not all: if you have a silencer attached to your weapon, then you can get 1-3 shots off while cloaked without uncloaking because now it uses less suit energy to fire a Silenced weapon thanks to this new, stronger Nanosuit.
Naturally, it doesn't here. I could write a few hundred words on just the Visor Mode alone, especially once things are tagged!
