I'm sure it doesn't just happen to me alone. Mobs seems to gain some incredible evasion bonus when they are at >50% hp. Often time I would wiff wiff wiff, use WS....wifff...and wiff some more. My best record was 10 missed in a roll on a blue mob (that still gives decent sp) when it was at 10% hp or so. While I was busy missing, the mob had no problem landing every single hits including 4 WS one after another and have me licking dirt with the mob dancing on my flattened Lallafeh.

I hope this is a bug but knowing SE...this can very well be working as intended :P

I vote for poor combat balance. The miss rate for any class seems extraordinarily high across the board regardless of mob type or level. It's almost like SE didn't spend much time testing and balancing combat, but we both know they'd never do something that shortsighted.
