I'd say a truly bad drivetrain could certainly break ride enjoyment. It sucks to not be able to put down the power when you need to because of jumping/grinding/skipping gears, or having chains constantly falling off, or all the other things that decent modern drivetrains are pretty good at preventing. But saving my thumb 0.14159 watts per hour with little buttons instead of small levers? Probably not going to appreciably increase any enjoyment factor. Especially when my brain has spent way more energy worrying about keeping who-knows-how-many batteries charged up.
