I'd roll up a set of stats for a warrior and see if I can get in enough feats to make it bad-ass in hand to hand anyway.
but yeah, It definitely sounds like a gimmick... ask him for a detailed write-up of the world and see if he can give a decent plot hook. If not I'd take a pass personally.
He basically thought of it off the cuff. It's definitely a gimmick.
And no, he won't allow straight fighters(though he did reconsider his previous no-weapons position and allow magi) But a summoner's the next best thing. You have Summon Monster for minions, and when things get really hairy you've got the eidolon to stand in for muscle.
