For me that would make it not worth it. In fact, I think the better the start the worse the game is, overall. I mean in a "perfect" start scenario where are the choices? When everything breaks for you it is easy to go on autopilot and, for me, that is just no fun. I want to make some tough choices and when the start is mediocre at best that is when those choices shine. Personal opinion of course, but I enjoy the puzzle and like it when a game forces a little sacrifice in exchange for something great.
