Well, for one, Skyrim's setting has some pretty heavy Norse inspiration, which isn't something you see very often. Also, the Elder Scrolls lore is pretty deep and there's a lot of interesting history there. There's also a great diversity of races. In Amalur, there's nothing really notable about the setting and there are basically two races: humans and elves. There's nothing interesting about the lore or the politics. The fact that the next Amalur game was going to be an MMO really comes as no surprise, as the generic setting is all too standard for that genre.

It's obvious you didn't play the game. There's actually quite a bit of background, and the setting it actually pretty interesting. You just don't get that in the first hour of playing. The gameplay itself it bland, a lot of the sidequests are generic, but there are some really interesting aspects to the lore.

Oh, and considering that 7 out of the 10 races in Skyrim are humans or elves, making the complaint that another game is mostly humans and elves falls a little flat.
