You have more control over the sword in
because of the Wiimotion Plus, so there is more variety in attacks and strategies. Just compare the Skulltula in
to any other iteration in the series--there are far more creative ways to take it out that include the Beetle, flipping it like a pancake with your sword, using the bow, spinning it with your sword and stabbing it like a pinata, bombs, etc. Deku Babas and Chus eat bombs making it the most effective way to defeat them. Stalfos are weak against bombs. Slingshot stuns monsters... Even the fishing net can be used to "confuse" Demise.
Have you tried any other strategies?
It goes in hand with a big complaint about
is that there isn't much enemy variety,
This I agree with.
and the vast majority of enemies can be beaten with a simple few stabs, like the Bokoblins.
And like most enemies in EVERY Zelda game.
The bow arrives when the game is almost finished,
The bow is the most overpowered item in the game, so it should appear late.

I liked using the Gust Bellows to expose the weakspot of an armos, rather then just leaping in and stabbing them, like you do with the bokoblins.
Have you played Wind Waker or Twilight Princess recently?
