Not sure if this has been discussed and the forums are not behaving properly. (I can only see page one of the posts, the other pages have the header but no posts show up.)
It would be really nice to be able to turn off a lot of the pre/post shot animations. I find that just to get to the point where I can setup my shot, I have to press 'A' 4 or five times to cut the animations short. I'd also like to be able to skip the AI rival shots. And turn off the player reaction animations... All the animations are fine first time through, but after you play for a while, they just get in the way. I want to play the game, not watch the game...
