I definitely hit that power fantasy feel even with level scaling. Once you get your build set up and the better gear there's a big difference from early game.Part of the appeal of RPGs is that it's a power fantasy - remember those mobs that wrecked you at the start of your journey? Well after some trials and tribulations you can come back to that area levels later and absolutely stomp. It's satisfying - ACO steals that sense from the player with their level scaling. It's really, really annoying to feel like you aren't making much progress because the enemies magically jump up to your level. Can be highly frustrating when bounty hunters swarm while you're just trying to complete a mission, or you're on a roll unlocking missions but find yourself level gated just when things start to get good - it essentially restricts your freedom of movement.
Really not a fan of the level scaling; definitely a bone-head decision if you ask me!
