I use melee as my primary option since it doesn't use any resources and it doesn't matter what elements you're dealing with. The charge-up R2 is incredibly strong. It knocks anything that isn't gigantic down and will allow you to land a critical attack while they're down. It's instantly death for anything except a boss and it's easy to use after dodging almost anything. It also travels a long, long way and tracks enemies as long as you hold in their general direction. Yet the other melee attacks might as well not even be there. There's an entire skill tree I wasted a pile of points into...and it has been a waste. That R2 attack (and one combo where you hit R1 once and then hold R2) = the only ones worth doing. Seems you can't respec your stat points, either.
