I have quite a few hours in but I'm not sure how you guys with 80+ in one playthrough do it. Even without grinding through smithing/enchanting, by the time I was lvl 39 I was so powerful that exploring and combat had lost any kind of tension or interest. I would walk through room in a dungeon and try to aggro as many as I could and then kill them all with just a few shots without losing much health. It's frustrating because exploration is the best part of the game. I turned the difficulty all the way up, but it didn't help much.

Don't get me wrong; I want the reward of feeling powerful after investing the the time and effort to build my character, but there still needs to be some challenge left somewhere.

You're playing on Adept, if you play on the harder difficulties the game is much more challenging. Even a simple 2 on 1 encounter can be extremely deadly. Enchanting and Smithing tend to break the game if powerleveled, if they are leveled naturally it is a reasonable curve.

You can also turn off the health and magicka regen. Also, don't wear heavy armor. In fact, don't wear any armor at all and make sure not to use any enchantments that give you any resistance of any kind.

There are some serious balance issues with the races so depending on what you chose, the game's difficulty will vary. Bretons have 50% magic resistance, which can easily be raised to 100% with enchantments and sign stones, making mages and dragons pretty useless against you. Fighting against said enemies with no resistance at all makes the fights much more difficult (on Master difficulty).

Im hoping some kind of standalone expansion ala Fallout: New Vegas is done by Obsidian at some point in the future.

Fallout: New Vegas is not an expansion. Just because a game uses the same engine != expansion.
