Maybe the answer should be that the biggest failure of major RPG developers is oversimplifying.
I don't think that's the issue. I don't mind (in fact, prefer) those question marks on the NPCs. I (the player) is not in that world, so to me that is just a way for the UI to represent my character(s)' knowledge, be it by asking around, gathering info, or just knowing the people in town.

I do agree with them, to me it's the "players are stupid" approach to games. There are no more puzzles, no riddles, no way of gimping a character (you can't even create a character or party anymore outside their appearance).
