@Stubee: That's a shame.
Sure it looks daunting at first, but once you understand what it all means, it's pretty incredible how deep and varied all of the mechanics are. And if you actually do get invested in these games, and are into RPG's, you'll want to see those stats.
If not, a quick press on the square button hides most of the advanced stuff, if you prefer that. I do agree that the interface needs some work here and there though, often it crams way to much info on a single screen.
