Just a few ideas to toss out.  One of the RPG systems I like uses a seconds
based system.

WEAPONS SPEED - SKILL - REFLEXES  is when you go next.  Someone with a fine
rapier could go more often then someone wielding a club.  And some one with
greater skill would go more often than someone with a lesser skill.  And
natural reflexes (ie DEX) would also play a part.

I also think an offense/defence ratio would be nice.  Especially one you
could change on the fly.

Or what about combat commands like "protect joe" or "target eyes"?

Things to do on a Friday night.
