30 hours is fine for me. Any longer than that and I really don't have a chance of finishing the game. More concerning is that this game is going to be trash. Sad but true. If only cd projekt were making it. Oh well, moving on...
Fortunately for you, games like skyrim can be completed in that time if you do only the main quest. Thats the great thing about games like that, people who want 100+ epic gametime can go explore everything. People like you who want a <30 hour experience can focus on main quests. Same goes for many other beth games too, like oblivion, the fallout games, morrowind, etc.

Which is why I wasn't against Episodic content at the beginning... smaller chunks make it less likely for the designers getting bored and phoning it in / copy-paste'ing / etc. So long as the price was... adequate and the release schedule was acceptable I'd be fine with it.
Unfortunately practically nobody really delivered on Episodic Content correctly.
Telltale has done the best I think, with games like Sam & Max.
