The fact that such fights and battle scenes are difficult to follow is precisely the point. Real life conflict is chaotic and disorienting.
This seems a really strange thing to say given that very much about Star Trek is unrealistic, especially the space battles. Any "realism" will always take a backseat to the intent of the director. If the idea is to confuse the audience, then fine, that's his choice. But I think some are saying they prefer to not be confused or overwhelmed when it comes to something as simple as a space battle. I don't know if that is a majority opinion though. Maybe some people like to be overwhelmed with lasers and rockets and lens flares, oh my.

seems a really strange (and condescending) thing to say. The purpose isn't to confuse, it's to immerse.
I'm not even angry. I'm being so sincere right now.
Even though you broke my heart and killed me.
And tore me to pieces.
And threw every piece into a fire.
