I read both parts and, though I never played X-Com, I fully agree with the Dragon Age vs. MM1. There's just TOO MUCH STORY. I guess for some people that's good. I play RPGs mainly for the tactical gameplay, the rules, etc. I like a nice *background* story, something that gives a reason for my adventuring… but when the story is more important than the gameplay, that's when it stops being a fun game to me. I couldn't care less about 'choices & consequences' unless those choices are my character's abilities and choices during combat. For example, Betrayal at Krondor. That game also had a lot of story, but it was not as forced upon you as the more recent games.
