I've gotten to accepting I just don't like them as I get bored quickly of replaying the same levels (even with randomized layouts and enemies) over and over. Especially once it gets to a point that the early levels are easy and becomes tedious to play through them again just to get another shot at whatever level/boss I died on.
I could be wrong, or mixing things up with Deathloop, but I'm guessing you would not start completely from scratch here (with your character at least) since you're supposed to continuously uncover the story slowly.

I never really knew what his genre was as I've never played any games in it that I know of. Not quite as excited about it now as I was before, as I'm not keen on having to start all the way at the beginning again. The game might not be terribly long, which would make it better at least. Deathloop at least is different (and technically not rougelike I imagine), as you only start back at the beginning of that particular hit/mission.
