Seeing Past Shortcomings In Lords of Shadow

As a piece of video gaming that rips from a lot of other ground-breaking games, it excels at not overdoing it. As a piece of technical work? That's a bit of a sore spot.

The game is goddam gorgeous, but there are some issues with technical things like camera placement, frame rates (at least on the 360 version). My question to you is this:

As a gamer, do technical snafus keep you from enjoying a game as much as a game devoid of such experience breakers? Do I ignore these particulars in the grading process or do I bust the developers balls over this kind of thing?
