Oblivion and Witcher are at two different ends of the western RPG spectrum. Yeah, Oblivion doesn't have much story, but it's free-form and heavily modable world where you can do pretty much what you want with a character of your own creation (which is why I've got over three hundred hours in that game).

Witcher and Witcher 2 are a lot more story focused, centered on one character with a defined skill set; it's world is more restricted and you're not modding it. That doesn't mean it isn't a lot of fun (especially since the story is kicking ass so far), but it's not going to appeal to a player that only likes Oblivion style RPGs. Personally, I like both styles (but I can't stand Japanese RPGs).
