Well built, but fails ergonomically

Despite all the glowing reviews, I had to return this chair.
It is a very nice chair: well built, well padded, nice high back (you can put a pillow behind your head and sleep).
I am very picky about ergonomics: ideally, a chair allows some room for my butt, and then curves in to support my lower back.
This chair doesn't really do any of that: it's not as bad as a 'sling' chair, where you're forced to sit on a piece of material that stretches diagonally between the bottom and back of the chair, but it's not great either.
The main problem is the height: I'm 6' tall, and there is constant pressure on the underside of my thighs: this chair needs to be a good 3" lower in front I would think.
Also, when rocking forward, it stops at 90 degrees, which isn't terrible, but I would like to go further forward I think.
