You're examining this too closely, Yeesh. You're missing the forest for the trees. Back up and consider a different perspective. It's just not that hard to tell the difference between CRPGs and other games.

Alfred Hitchcock once said, "When an actor comes to me and wants to discuss his character, I say, 'It's in the script.' If he says, 'But what's my motivation?, ' I say, 'Your salary.'

When I was a student, I took a lot of acting classes, did some plays and helped make a few films. None of the folks I did any of that with could ever agree on what everyone should be thinking. There's a converation there but not one that will ever help define anything.

Unless you're performing, you're just having fun when you role-play. You're entertaining yourself (and you do it collaboratively if you're part of a group). It's easier when you have something to work with. Role-playing game are especially convenient, and some are better than others. That's it, really.
