Every player is going to need assists in order to enjoy that experience for any length of time. If I had to climb a mountain cliff face with some 'roided-out motion controls in Breath of the Wild, I’d lose interest and go do something else. That there are difficult aspects to the game doesn’t make it any less true that there are assists to facilitate the entertainment aspect of the experience.
