Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars

Never played it before, I'm probably about 75% through, and I feel that this game is a bit overrated. Many of the puzzles (esp. the dialogue-related ones) IMO are rather unintuitive, and the pace of the gameplay is SLOW SLOW SLOW! Is there any way to speed things up? I know for a fact that I'm relying on the walkthrough more often than I normally would, because I don't want to try too many different methods of solving puzzles, because every command takes too long to execute. (I know how to skip lines of dialogue, but I don't know any way to speed up things like walking across the screen, performing actions, etc.)

The story, however, is incredible, as are the voice acting and dialogue. Thus far, I would liken Broken Sword 1 to Dreamfall, where the story is amazing but the gameplay is distinctly subpar. I'm definitely looking forward to diving head first into the rest of this series.
I'm in my undies. That's... SO not appropriate.
