I did maybe 15 or so side quests and they were rarely exciting and somewhat the same.
Yeah, I just gave up. It's like scanning the Keepers - you do it and get nothing from it, which is disappointing considering their relation to the main plot. They were too formulaic and not worth my time... fortunately the main plot was very enjoyable (if a bit unoriginal). I also don't like the fact that when you complete the game you can't keep playing. It was brilliant in Oblivion that it didn't limit you after doing the main quest.

Alot like Oblivion, the random side quests were rarely worth it except for the Dark Brotherhood.
Actually, I thought the side-quests in Oblivion were very entertaining - they had a lot of character and there was quite a lot of variation; not enough to make you want to complete them all but I preferred many of them to the main quest (which was a bit weak imo).

As for the DRM issue... I too am annoyed at the situation. Rightly or wrongly customers are effectively accused of being pirates. Not only that but, as mentioned, requiring DRM servers is an issue for the future when they're shutdown (like Microsoft and Yahoo are doing) - that means you won't be able to play the game without downloading a patch to fix the game being "broken" out of the box. I'm all for publishers protecting their investments but not at my expense. This is why I use Steam - I don't need to worry about disc checks and it's been stated that if Steam is going to be shutdown (which seems very, very unlikely at this point) that they'll allow you to keep your games by stripping the DRM (which is already much less intrusive than other systems).
