I was referring to your statement that it was "underused most of the times" " in Amiga games, which I think it's not exactly correct to say the least!
Well most games don't do much more than use it to set up bpl pointers, hscroll and change colour 0. Both can be achieved trivially on the STE with timer B or an HBL interrupt. How many games can you point to which say change res midway down the screen or have horizontal rasters? Demos used it to greater effect. Copper chunky for example.
