I'm not really sure about this.

PB strikes me as a bunch of artists, but maybe they're simply not good at dungeon design?

I mean, in my world - you only include a dungeon if you take the concept to its fullest. Otherwise, just focus on what you're good at - and in this case, it would be more overland areas.

Anyone having played D&D in their youth, should have a decent understanding of what makes dungeon exploring so fascinating. Risen definitely missed out on that aspect, as did all their other games.
