For a pretty long fucking time, actually. Dungeon Master immediately springs to mind. As does The Bard's Tale. Even Rogue and Moria had doors in their dungeons. The Ultima series had doors in its dungeons as did the Eye of the Beholder series and forward. Where have you been?

The story in Skyrim was leaps and bounds better than Oblivion. The whole story of Oblivion is you doing nothing more than shepherding a whiny bitch around the countryside while actually doing his job for him (closing the Oblivion portals). That's it. Oh, then you get to stand around and watch him become a golden dragon statue. Woo. Thanks for the awesome end game for my thousand plus hour investment. In fact, it wasn't until The Shivering Isles DLC that you got a storyline that centered wholly around your own character.

Everyone knew going in that Skyrim was the last gasp of the Gamebryo/Emotion engine. Bethesda was very clear in interviews that they had just re-written portions of the code to add routines that fit with their vision of Skyrim. After Skyrim, we could expect future ES games to be built atop an entirely different engine.

Every company is in it for the profit. That's why they're in business. Anyone who thinks that games, past or present, were created be saintly martyrs for the purity of art are, quite frankly, hilariously delusional.
