But I also like Paititi so I'm clearly a minority here.
Speaking for me, but at least my problem with Shanty Town was that it was riddled with combat sequences where enemies would just constantly spam until you did a certain task. Yet most of the times there were too many enemies on screen to be able to do said task without dying in five seconds. It was too unbalanced. Besides, it was a hub that desperately needed a "enemies can lose track of you" SotTR-like stealth system.

But as a hub I agree, it was quite well designed (and so was Paititi, so I'm with you here ), and aside of combat, is actually well used, with big hub with actual story sequences happening on it that require exploration - what both RotTR and SotTR were unfortunately missing).
