You can be everything to everyone. By the time I finish playing, I suspect I'll be a thief-assassin-ranger-fighter-mage and the grandmaster of every guild.
But you're wrong... the perks system brings true character definition to TES. You only have like 70 per playthrough and there are 250 of them to choose from. At level 7 in the game I can tell you right now that you have to limit yourself pretty strongly.
And I don't know how the stories play out, but I am being asked to choose sides pretty often so far.
