Disagree. Being able to hunt the wildlife, monsters, and plants to extinction is a real immersion-killer in an open kind of world. Of course, ham-handed respawning is even worse.

3. Never, ever scale monsters to the players level.
4. Never, ever scale items to the players level.

5. Dump the first person perspective because melee sux.
Disagree. Oblivion's melee is better than most third-person action RPG melee. Doesn't mean it can't be improved, but it's not half bad -- and going first-person can be a major money-saver animation-wise. I'd rather see those resources spent on crafting great content, background, and other "meat."
