I see your point about the engine but Bethesda licensed the engine as well, it wasn't an inhouse creation.

Bethesda only licenses the Rendering Engine (Gamebryo). Everything else is in-house. (Radiant AI, Dialog and Quest Engines, etc.) You cannot build a Fallout 3 or TES game with Gamebryo, alone.

That is why they claim Skyrim is a "new engine", while the rendering engine is still a tweaked Gamebryo engine. They just happen to think all of their in-house engines plus a tweaked Gamebryo engine = One big RPG engine.

I won't debate whether that thinking is correct... but the bottom line is pretty much all Obsidian had to do was come up with the content.
