As You Like It is clearly a pastoral comedy—with a country setting, much talk of love of all sorts, a story which consists, for the most part, of a series of accidental meetings one after the other, and a resolution involving implausible transformations of character and divine intervention.
Central to the pastoral vision of As You Like It is the setting in the Forest of Ardenne, especially the contrast between it and the ducal court.
He is a moody cynic, who likes to look at life and draw from it poetical contemplations at the generally unsatisfactory nature of the world.

 As You Like It Summary & Essays - William Shakespeare
One of Shakespeare's early plays, As You Like It (1598-1599), is a stock romantic comedy that was familiar to Elizabethan audiences as an exemplar of "Christian" comedy.
The plot is very simple: the resolution of the dramatic problem in the warped attitudes of two evil brothers toward good brothers, and related obstacles to marriage for several couples in the play (most notably Rosalind and Orlando) are easily overcome, and a happy ending is never in doubt.
At its center, As You Like It presents us with the respective worldviews of Jaques, a chronically melancholy pessimist preoccupied with the negative aspects of life, and Rosalind, the play's Christian heroine, who recognizes life's difficulties but holds fast to a positive attitude that is kind, playful, and, above all, wise.

Like Two Gentlemen of Verona, Love's Labours Lost, and A Midsummer Night's Dream, it contains a journey to a natural environment, where the constraints of everyday life are released and the characters are free to remake themselves, untrammeled by society's forms.
Whatever tragedy may have occurred in the beginning - at the court - is totally forgotten when the action moves to the forest, where Robin-hood like; a banished duke, a melancholy philosopher and a cast of love sick characters act out their lives on the stage.
And while this "As You Like It" never quite obtained the popularity of "A Midsummer Night's Dream" or "The Taming of the Shrew," one probably could argue that "As You Like It" is the best of Shakespeare's comedies.

 [No title]
William Shakespeare's As You Like It examines the cruelties and corruption of court life and gleefully pokes holes in one of humankind's greatest artifices; the conventions of romantic love.
When she is banished from the court by her usurping uncle, Duke Frederick, she switches gender and travels with her loyal cousin Celia and the jester Touchstone to the Forest of Arden, where her father and friends live in exile...
As You like It is an enchanting, timeless romantic comedy which explores the play's investment in pastoral traditions, leading to an indulgence in rather simple rivalries; Court versus County, Realism versus Romance, Reason versus Mindlessness and Nature versus Fortune.

 Shakespeare's Sources for As You Like It
An introductory remark in Loge's text is "If you like it, so", and this may account for Shakespeare's choice of title.
Rosalynde is a pastoral romance, itself based on an earlier poem, The Coke's Tale of Gamelyn, and Shakespeare used the characters of Rosalynde, Celia, Phebe, Corin, and Silvius, inventing the others characters of Touchstone, Jaques, Amiens, Audrey, and Le Beau to facilitate a parody of the traditional and conventional pastoral romance.
It is obvious that As You Like It owes much to Lodge's novel, but Shakespeare has made some significant changes and additions.

In this radiant blend of fantasy, romance, wit and humour, Rosalind stands out as the most robust, multidimensional and lovable character, so much so that she tends to overshadow the other characters in an audience's memory, making them seem, by comparison, just "stock dramatic types" as the question asserts.
As You Like It is not a stock romance that just happens to have Shakespeare's greatest female role.
As You Like It contains as many characters as there are in life, but Rosalind is used as the vehicle for the Ideal.
