It really does get tiring having to repeat the story line again and again. The team that built D3 really didn't seem to "get" Diablo. No one ever cared about the story all that much, and it wasn't constantly in your way. It was just window dressing for the action.
I disagree. The story of D1, D2 and D2:LOD mattered very much. It was just much more subtly told, together with the brilliant cutscenes it allowed the player to sort of "connect the dots". Who is Tyrael? Is he even a force of good? What is the origin of the Sin War? Pentagrams!
Diablo3's story line can be summarised in one quote, courtesy of Butcher pre 1.03:
Vegetables Bad, Meat Good...
I have a nifty blue line!
