I have noticed that in singleplayer, you occasionally get a "3rd person cinematic" camera for the duration of the attack. It's quite nice. Reminds me of many other games with turn based combat. The way it is done (only happening rarely) is a nice switch of mood.
However, when we play multiplayer, in many many hours I have never ever seen this feature occur.
I don't know if its turned off on purpose in multiplayer, but mabye it is just an oversight and could be activated?
I think there is also a setting in the options for that, irrc. So people can turn it off anyway if they don't like it.
