It would be very cool to have a "wait" icon beside every character's abilities during the battles, just like in some older games (the first that comes to my mind: Heroes of Might and Magic). Just imagine! This option would open a lot of new and fresh ways of strategy.
For example: I don't want to hit a taunting Kenobi with 55% health because he will fall bellow 50% what will triggers Anakin's rage. So, if I have a wait button I can avoid Anakin's mass attack and would figure out how to handle the situation later (eg. focus on Anakin with JKR).
Or, if I don't want to attack a strong Fives with retribution and taunting on him, I can wait a better time with a wait option, for example wait for another character's turn who has dispell ability. A lot of ways would open.
