On Skyrim DLC

Joystiq follows the VGA GotY win for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim by asking Bethesda's Todd Howard about plans for DLC and other post-release support. He explains, without offering too much detail:
Howard couldn't yet share plans for DLC, but he says it will be focused on "ways to make the game better, not just have more, because the game is so big. So we're going through ideas right now, and processing everything people are doing in the game, and trying to think of ways that we can improve it." There will be multiple releases (as with Bethesda's past games), but Howard says they "don't have a timetable. They won't be quick, and they'll have a lot of meat on them."

You're missing the point. You get that quest just by overhearing conversation, and/or talking to random people who are nowhere near him. If you actually want to do the quest, sure, you have to go in and talk to him, but even if you don't talk to him, even if you don't want to do the quest, there is no way to remove it from your quest log.

That doesn't really have anything to do with morality, though. If someone dislikes playing a thief/assassin because they don't like killing or stealing from nice people, the existence of the quest in their journal doesn't force them to. If they're completionists and feel they have no choice, well, good luck with that. To me, being a completionist in an ES game means picking every lock, completing every quest, finding every location, clearing every dungeon, talking to every NPC, reading every book, maxing out every skill, etc. The likelihood of doing that in one playthrough is pretty unlikely.
