Thatīs right, the map isnīt especially serviceable when it comes to getting to some places, but personally I certainly like that.
The gameīs world design is very good in use of z-axis and general raggedness and it results in exploration being a sorta environmental puzzle sometimes, like it was in Morrowind or Gothics, and too detailed/"clean" map would probably, at least partially, ruin that.
