I don’t feel strongly either way, but I like saving throws just fine.
They give the other player something to do, and I find that psychologically, players tend to enjoy having a chance to literally save their troops.

There might also be something more satisfying about games where its easier to hit but you get a save, versus a lower hit chance but no save, even if the final odds work out roughly equal.
