We have 4 Mishimas and 2 Karate. The Mishimas have a number of moves in common, but then they also have a number of moves that are very different.
Those I call "clones" have almost their entire movesets identical, with variations that have grown since they were first reintroduced. Because the second one was created later as a younger evolution of the first, but then the first came back to give variation to the same movesets. Those variations are what you talk about - different timing, different defensive/offensive approach etc.
It's not rocket science for anyone who has been through those games as they came out, it should be obvious who is or is not a clone.
Also Jin is much more traditional than the Mishima, but he's still a lot of fantasy Karate with those wide flying swings and explosive punches. Lidia is actual real world Karate, which is something that Tekken 7 has been putting a lot of work in - real world styles without the fantasy magic punches. Lidia is exactly what they've been doing, since Josie to Leeroy to Fahkumram. And if you say you want to see something more unique, Lidia seems to have entirely new moves and gameplay, so beside the fact that it's called Karate next to those styles that are not Karate but are still called Karate, I don't see what you're actually complaining about beside the fact that those Mishima characters are called Karate when they're not Karate.
Just pretend that her style is called Boobidiboo and see if that works for you.
If I struggled to the end of my determination, to the end of my way of life with my followers, if the result is ruin, then this ruin is inevitable. Grieve. Shed tears. But you cannot regret.
