I did not see how long Obsidian have been working on it! My bad. I'll have to dial down the cynicism a bit.

But it also depends on your definition of a "terrible game". IMO Fallout 3 is a terrible game, not because it disappoints all the Fallout fans, but just on its own merits. The engine hopefully branched at 90 degrees back in '05.
