I like quite a lot of what is done in the game and loads of people rant and rave about the fact you can go so far off the beaten track.

I've plugged about 12 hours or so into the game and done virtually none of the main story.

I'm a werewolf, master of the dark brotherhood and engaged in the civil war, which you can still hilariously take part in as a member of the empire, despite the fact I personally killed the emperor in front of multiple witnesses including my current boss, no less.

I judas'd them for the Stormcloak's anyway Viking power all the way.

I have to say though,

It's wide open to very obvious power levelling mechanics.

If you make the simplest iron dagger (iron bar plus strip of leather) you can max blacksmithing and make the best armour in the game at like level 11.

In the previous game, I messed around without doing the story for about 3 months off and on.

Then one day I said "fuck this, its time to actually play this thing, cuzz maybe I'm missing out on the thing people see in this game by not playing the main quest"
5 hours later it was over...and I hadnt missed anything.

turned me off to the series, and Bethesda in general.

The only reason Skyrim even looks decent visually is because they bought Id Software.
if not for that I'd look like crap. (See Fallout and Fallout Vegas)

All my horses and Lydia have not got on well at all. Lydia usually wins which is expensive. Then I found the console codes. So, after she kills a horse I punish her by unrelenting force shouting her miles off a cliff, teleporting her carcass to my position, (looting her) then reviving her and doing it again for good measure.
