My assumption was meant to remember that in their game design must dos list, developpers have one to provide an opportunity to complete the game under 20 ~30 hours.

A short walkthrough is a requirement for many games as a mass of players do not want to spend more than 30 hours on the same game.

The short path in a game usually gives 20 to 30 hours. Either a studio loses customers as people dont buy a game they can not complete under the 30 hours bar.

Skyrim will last potentially longer than 30 hours but will offer the possibility to beat it under the 30 hours bar. As TW2 must and already does.
