Here's the point for you:Then you aim closer to the sideline knowing you only scatter half the distance . I don t see the point of making it optional. you have the choice where you aim and with the new visual you can be much more accurate.
You want to kick the ball into the wide zone close to the LOS, but the scatter is not favourable and the ball lands right in the middle of you opponent's half next to his Thrower (or possibly right in his square).
If you could disable Kick at this moment, the ball would go much deeper into the opponent's half, which would be a more desirable outcome in that situation.
It's not always just about keeping the ball inside the pitch. Options are options: good to have them.
