totally, making it port well would be the only difficult part of this, otherwise i think it would have a huge following

You could emulate tekken and street fighter. not very optimised controls though

i agree 100%, thats why i think someone needs to sit down and rework the whole control scheme...come up with something new and intuitive. kinda like what halo wars did for the rts genre on consoles...

I definately think a good development team could pull it off. That's why I don't understand why no one has tried to yet, other than solus. The controls may not be perfect but then what ever is. As long as they are workable that will be ok. It would probably be much more profitable than making another game in a genre that is to full of the same thing anyway.
