Once you become comfortable with the geography and don't have to ask everyone about everything to be able to progress it becomes less tiring. In my current playthrough I've managed to get through disc 1 in under 3 hours just because I know exactly where everything is and who to talk to. Once you don't have to ask for directions everywhere it's a lot less tedious.
To be honest the only time it really feels like an epic battle game is disc 3 of Shenmue 2, especially after Dou Niu turns up, when you get four or five hours of awesome action scenes.
