all these side quest are completly un-attached from the main quest, which sucks.
I've only done a few side quests, but most seem related to the main quest. They start unrelated, but end up related to making you better more powerful like getting more words etc.
Also you've always been able to do the main quest first, then the other quests. Sounds like you were mad at Oblivion for giving you to much freedom, you not knowing what to do with the freedom.
