Sneak attacks and attacks of opportunity, or really any combat advantage that applies to thieves/rogues only, are asinine.  Warriors/fighters are supposed to be the epitome of martial combat, so why would a class defined by stealth and finesse have any kind of combat skill not available to a warrior?  Yet another ridiculous legacy from even pre-1e, when fighters were presumed to have some sort of code of honor that made something like a backstab “illegal”.  Now in these days when thieves’ roles are so poorly served that they must be provided with more combat utility, BS/AoO is just a crutch to do so.
