I don't really understand your logic. Side-quests are optional. You don't have to do them. If you want a shorter experience, skip the side-quests and focus on the main quests. What you're basically saying is that you want the game to have less content so that you don't have to play it as much?

In Oblivion I got so tired of the game after a billion side-quests that I never finished the main quest. But I don't knock the game for that - I got way more than my $50 worth playing those side quests alone. 80 hours or so.

Fallout 3 was close to it - I noticed I was getting tired of plowing through every empty building just to see what there was to see - so I plowed through the main mission instead.

Let's be honest here, the main missions of these games are like 8 hours. When you start getting fatigued just move to them and get through. Or don't. The main missions aren't usually any more fun than the better side missions, or than just doing your own thing. They just have cut scenes and plot, often ones that don't matter much.

Sooo are you saying that's good or bad? I personally don't know if your critisizing or complementing the game.

I myself would've loved to see LESS side-quests and MORE main-quests. That's because I'm a person that quickly gets the "What the fuck am I doing, running around in a virtual world all alone?" feeling when I'm doing mindless sidequests in games like Oblivion or Fallout. I need a strong story to believe the illusion I'm not wasting my life xD
