I'm trying to create a table like this:


For it, I wrote the following code:

        & \multirow{2}{*}{\rotatebox{90}{one and a half~}} \\ \cline{1-2}
        two & three & \\

However, the output is not quite as expected:


The best workaround for this I found so far was this answer: http://tex.stackexchange.com/a/74550/22718. But it seems a bit excessive, especially considering I need this layout in multiple places and for every column I would have to write something like \setbox0\hbox{\tabular{@{}l}Metszéspontok\\ Száma\endtabular}, if I understand correctly. Also, to my mind, it's pretty simple formatting, I achieved this in LO Calc with a few mouse clicks, so it should be not that difficult in LaTeX, right?

I would really appreciate any suggestions!
