Sure in list view mode, you cannot use correctly the lasso.

But, as far as I know, the lasso was invented on systems with icon views.

So you can drag all needed icons in a free space and then lasso them together.
Then you can do the drag&drop operation that you want.

That works too in crowded directories (sometimes you have to move icons away 
to make room, and you could have to use the place between icons to "park" or 
to group the icons.)

Have a nice day!
