I wish the dragon encounters weren't so routine. Instead of having you fight 100 weak dragons, they should have only made a handful of epic level dragons.
Run into an elder bronze yet? At level 40 it chewed me up and one shot me repeatedly.
And these are randomly appearing ones? I'm not that far into the game yet (mid 20s now), but getting one-shot by random encounters sounds somewhat annoying, and a repeat of Oblivion's horrible level-scaling.

Anyway, I tend to agree with Jerykk based on what I've seen of the game so far. Dragons are starting to give me Oblivion-gate deja-vu. The first one I fought was epic (aka hid inside the tower while the guards finished it off), the next couple of dragons were still scary as well, especially the one that ganked me enroute to High Hrothgar. Basically NO places to hide on that narrow path. Sumbitch even ate my horse while I was frantically trying to heal behind a small rock

But now, after having killed 10+ random ones, they're quickly becoming routine/flying upgrade points. Hearing a dragon roar in the distance was a huge tension-builder early in the game, but that's starting to dissipate fast, now. Even though the type of dragons has changed with my level, the difficulty has remained more or less constant, and the pattern of taking one down is always the same. DISCLAIMER: I haven't fought any named ones yet though (with the exception of the very first one), so I'm assuming those will be more epic and considerably harder.

Don't get me wrong, I don't really want randomly appearing super-bossses either, ref. my initial comment about elder bronzes and potential one-shotting. But at present it feels like the random/lesser dragons should appear about 3-4 times less often than they do now.
