Some other ideas:
Use an attack roll vs attack roll instead of AR vs AC, and use the AC of the loser to see if it got hit
Or, if you want to show how the shield and armor helps fighting add everything into one big roll vs roll.

Re: Tweaks to combat rules

1. One thing that never quite seemed right with the D&D rules is the lack of a defense bonus. The attack bonus ratchets up as PCs gain experience and level up, but shouldn't characters also gain skill in parrying & dodging attacks? A simple fix would be to let players have a defense bonus = attack ...

Re: Hitting multiple Opponent with one swing

Not per the core rules, one attack is what you get, don't remember if that option is in the combat option supplement...
