In my dreams, this game will be a huge commercial success and inspire a publisher like Bethesda to invest in a big budget open world RPG. Complete freedom of character development, combined with a party system, set in the Shadowrun universe with two or three diverse cities/regions to explore...

Why? I think you entirely miss the point of Kickstarter and a small very dedicated team making the game they want to make, the way they want to make it, without massive corporate overheard quadrupling (or more) the budget.

Large publishers get a hold of this stuff, farm it out to developers that don't understand the source material and what made the original game designs popular. The result is garbage like Syndicate.

Kickstarter is a great thing, but it's really nothing more than a means to an end. There is no ideological crusade; it's about getting things done that big publishers are currently unwilling to consider. And not all big publishers are EA/Activision.
