The worst for me was the fight between Nima and Yoder. There's quite a bit of dialogue before you get to any actions, and when they do come there's so many quick button presses that you'll have to restart nearly instantly. The only way I could get the gold was to write down the whole sequence of buttons to press, and even when I knew the combos I STILL HAD A HARD TIME. I watched that intro dialogue so... many... times...
Maybe they could've put the last checkpoint/save right before the actions get going.
