The point was that I'd rather have these items placed in an illogical way, than not have them at all.

Obviously, smart placement means a lot as well.

As far as the setting goes, Risen takes place on a small volcanic island, so I found the limited variety of environments completely fitting.
I didn't really mean fitting in the "plausible" way. I just think Fallout 3 is all about experiencing a destroyed world - and giving the player this feeling of hopelessness with all the rubble. That's why it's fitting.

It's easily explained why a volcanic island only has 1-2 underground environments, but I don't think it helps the experience at all. I think a lot more variety was called for. It certainly would have made me more keen to explore.
