Raiders of the Lost Ark. Arab swordsman, 5W. Hah! No problem! Indy pulls his gun 1W. Help! What answer has the arab to THAT? Maybe 'Dodge faster than a speeding bullet 6'? So why can't the arab 'reset' his AP after that? Well, admittedly, because he's dead... however, if Indy had just grazed him, or even just missed, the swordsman would have been off-balance, shaken, maybe wounded, his plans ruined, his opponent still armed with a possible attack he has no defence from (whether he uses it or not, he COULD). OK, not a perfect answer, but it's the sort of situation the game mechanic represents. And one of the all-time classic movie scenes :)
