I like the story, but the formal narrative can be reduced to a little over ten minutes of exposition.

Frankly, my dear Drew, I think you're overvaluing the merits of the story. Of course, I'm speaking solely for the first God of War. I believe you (habeeb it!) when you say that the later games are much better, but the first game... it's not the best thing since sliced bread. The themes you mention are certainly there, but they really do take a back seat to the "HOLY CRAP! LOOK AT THAT!" design of the game. The devs were their own worst enemy in this.
And, again speaking of the first game, the combat is hardly refined or creative. It's solid, but it's nothing more than Action 101 with Shenmue's quick-time events thrown in. Though, again, I believe that the second (and third) game definitely improve upon this.
