I disagree. The writing was good, although not great, and the sense of humor worked for me. I similarly disagree with each of your other points, all valid, but to each their own.
The bottom line is that AP was apparently unsuccessful in terms of sales, and that's unfortunately really what counts unless a game becomes a cult classic like PST (something AP does not come close to approaching).
