We have not changed the behavior or removed the pen tool, it still exists in the toolbar. Curvature Tool is a separate tool altogether, it has not replaced the Pen Tool.

For some reason, this phenomenon only kicked in with my most recent update (I swear, I used it last week and it was fine). I don't understand the logic of Adobe developers behind such a decision. I'm using a workaround of drawing in Photoshop and InDesign since the pen tool works much more efficient there. I'm also considering the installation of an older version.
Adobe used to be a great company but monopoly status is not giving the user the best service (it is no longer a product since the subscription model).
Typing escape every time you want to terminate a path is just not a productive way of working. I'm feeling as upset as Adam above and disgusted. I dream of the day when a viable competitor emerges.
The other issue I have with Adobe it that their apps are notoriously crawling with bugs and with CC e are forced to perform the updates and expose ourselves to every bug out there. I need an Adobe bug vaccine!
