Bethesda just can't seem to write well. I kinda wish they'd merge with Obsidian and just have Chris Avellone and crew handle all the writing.
I thought Point Lookout and The Pitt were better written than the main game. Not up to New Vegas standards by ANY means, but better than the main game. And Point Lookout really captured the weird side of Fallout that was missing from FO3 and New Vegas until Old World Blues came out.
Overall I agree with you though. Hoping Skyrim shows some better writing, since they supposedly hired some new writers.
