How about: stability,
It will be designed with consoles in mind.
Why bother making new ones when Fallout3's do fine?
Why bother when no body reads it? Clearly combat is much more exciting.
a more fleshed out magic system,

post-release support consisting of more than 2 patches,
DCL my friend!
AI that doesn't just stand around while you shoot them full of arrows,
No body likes dying, and the player loves feeling like a god.
physics that allow you to run around without getting stuck in objects or go through the floor.
Why bother with physics when we can have more combat?!
