I can't think of anything more dull then a bunch of henchman that follow you around like some brain dead zombie robots with zero personality or dialogue. I much prefer some fun interaction and dialogue myself. I can fill in things myself if needed (like in the Icewind Dale or the Might and Magic games where you make your own party) but really prefer characters with some depth like in Torment, BG/NWN games or DAO. Not talking about in-depth relationships - just some fun dialogue, comments, and maybe a side quest or two. But to each there own. Having been around the block way more times than I would like, I know companions are very popular with both older and newer gamers, but I also know many traditionalists like quiet henchmen. Given a choice I would still go with henchmen for combat + personality versus just combat alone. Just adds more immersion.
