For dramatic effect and/or to save time. For example. 1 hero, 1 child and two assassins trying to kill the child. The hero acts first. He could take them out one at a time or cleave them in two with a single blow. If successful this prevents them killing the child ...

It seems reasonable realistic to me. It should be ludicrously difficult. I might add bonuses and/or edges for using area effect weapons.
