You're right. Funnily, i didn't even perceive MD's story as thin, or hardly existant. But, i'll be cautious, because, sometimes your perception can really trick you.
I don't know if that was sarcasm but The Elder Scrolls main stories were very superficial. And then compare it to what Daggerfall had. A couple of endings and an interesting plot intrigue.

"I really perceive that vanity about which most men merely prate — the vanity of the human or temporal life. I live continually in a reverie of the future. I have no faith in human perfectibility. I think that human exertion will have no appreciable effect upon humanity. Man is now only more active — not more happy — nor more wise, than he was 6000 years ago. The result will never vary — and to suppose that it will, is to suppose that the foregone man has lived in vain — that the foregone time is but the rudiment of the future — that the myriads who have perished have not been upon equal footing with ourselves — nor are we with our posterity. I cannot agree to lose sight of man the individual, in man the mass."...
