Sure, it may be fun for a player to use on a foe, but I bet any players who have it used upon their character once or twice, forcing them to abort their other extremely important action, will hate it. If a pc is the victim of magic that somehow prevents him, fine, but having a stunt that takes away control of your character´s actions? Not my cup of tea.
(I can see how it works in the CRPG, that doesn´t make it a good idea for pnp.)
Agreed, especially when you're trying to run down the object you're 'supposed' to save, but some cholo taunts you back and your party dies because you failed at the one task given to you.
Threaten (I think that's the stunt) is a mechanic that's fine for computer games, but has no place in pnp games, mainly because it robs free will.
