It's not "bait and switch"; it's just bad writing, bad game design, and terrible characterization. 2B is literally Lightning from FFXIII (except even flatter), while 9S doesn't even get proper gameplay. >Is this your first Taro game
I bought Drakengard 1 at launch, so obviously not. The difference is, back then the fans weren't so deluded to make excuses for shitty game design because muh Taro.
