Shivering Isles had some really cool stuff as well. Most of peoples complaints about Oblivion are spot on and Skyrim is a massive improvement in most areas. I just think that they got rushed on quest design and it shows, they're inconsistent and many were over far too quickly.
Yeah. Skyrim's Thieves Guild quest line is pretty good, but the other three are just short and kinda shitty. Nothing compared to the awesomeness of those selfsame quest lines in Oblivion.
Still... 220 hours into Skyrim, and not bored yet.
