I'm not sure it is unavoidable - but rather very challenging to do right.

New Vegas seems to be able to do it, but obviously the freedom and non-linearity sensation is somewhat less strong.

The happy medium should theoretically be feasible.

I still think the Gothics are closest to this elusive mix of a strong narrative drive and a strong sensation of freedom.

But which Gothic?

Hmmm… I'd have preferred 3 - if only the combat was better, and the story not quite so open and bland.

It came relatively close, though.
