Real-time-with-pause (RTWP) certainly has its flaws, but not being able to take your time with it is not one of them. That's what the "pause" part of it. You can make RTWP work as a quasi-turned-based system if you wanted to.

I think RTWP is a great compromise between full turned based and full real-time.
