Hey Professional.. I think tron was talking about gameplay when he said boring simplicity. I mean, if he was discussing visuals, the part about micro-managing wouldn't make any sense at all.
(Also.. never say ALWAYS. Every rule has an exception, or if it doesn't yet, it will.)
I personally didn't find the Dungeon Siege engine to be that impressive.. it's easy to make a game seamless when it has weak graphics and very little work going on for actual gameplay.
Engines notwithstanding, I enjoyed the hell out of playing through it co-op with a bunch of friends. (Imagine, if you will, a bunch of nerds gathered with computers in a dank basement, playing through all of Dungeon Siege in two sittings... I miss all the free time I had in High School. I don't miss the dank basements though.)
I don't think I will EVER play Dungeon Siege again though.
