While I agree with you about Morrowind and Oblivion being lifeless compared to Gothic, I'd have to disagree about them lacking art. I haven't played too much of Oblivion yet, but Morrowind had some incredibly artistic architecture. I was especially impressed with some of the Dwemer ruins.

It was the (lack of) NPC's and monsters that made Morrowind seem lifeless compared to more populated games like the Gothic series, certainly not the graphics.
