comment Detecting end-state of decryption process with unknown key
As for the one-time pad, there is always the problem of key exchange and of finding a suitable PRNG, although that's for another question...

comment Detecting end-state of decryption process with unknown key
That is possible. However there are plenty of situations where such assumptions are not possible (for example attempting to decode encrypted control systems such as military drones, satellites, etc or even decoding illegal encrypted images (format unknown) for police/forensic purposes). That raises the question as to whether statistical analysis would be of much use given the data is not natural language format.
