i wish the skyrim main storyline quest was much more integrated with the game.. like a Mount and Blade style thing happening where you recruit forces and fight armies and take towns and cities and so forth...

yeh that would be sweet

The civil war storyline has that, to an extent. It's not really part and parcel of the main storyline, since why would you need to fight armies and take towns to stop the Dragons?

Even so, the engine is highly unsuited for huge combats. There was a mod called (I believe) Skyrim Warzone that had huge amounts of Imperials and Nords fighting each other in specific areas, and it made the entire thing really fucking unstable. Few people ever got that to run for more than an hour without crashes and hosed savegames.

Oscuro was also planning on doing something similar for OOO 1.4 in Oblivion, where a Daedric Gate would open, and Daedric forces would actually come out and start attacking towns, but he finally gave up on it because the engine would always crap out.

Maybe in the next one...
