Me too, wolfing. It has two major weaknesses: a boring main quest and level scaling. It has a ton of positives too though: great places to explore, interesting dungeon layouts, fun spell and enchanting mechanic, a good alchemy setup, and more. The biggest ++ to Oblivion though, is its amazing modding community. Bethesda would have still made buckets of money without the CS, but with it they've given gamers like me over a thousand hours of play. I'll never spend a dime on an MMO, so if Zenimax goes that route, Oblivion will be the never-ending mod game for crpgers.
Most people hate Oblivion because of the same sin that Dragon Age made: over-hyping the product till folks wanted to vomit.
