I don't think clunky and generic gameplay is the real issue with MMOs, no. I agree that Secret World has a clunky combat system - but many MMOs don't.

But gameplay can mean different things to different people. When I talk about gameplay - I'm usually talking about moment-to-moment entertainment, and not whether something is too linear or too derivative of other games.

I think the overall design paradigm of most modern MMOs is boring - but that's another matter. Secret World is actually an example of an MMO that could have been quite wonderful without the clunky combat and poor multiplayer integration.
