People actually enjoyed the story? I felt like that was the one area where they completely dropped the ball, it was borderline self-parody at times (Act 2 was absolutely hilarious). They should have gone the D2 approach with cool cinematics once in awhile and letting your imagination fill in the rest. The in-engine event spam is simply annoying btw.
