    Those places have some history, something to provide hooks for the game's story. Not everywhere has that. Compare them to somewhere really dull like the Emyn Muil (somewhere which would be pure...

    I said people complain if an area's a bit dull, which is a different proposition to "why did you make this area?". The devs leave out the really dull bits of Middle-earth so they don't get people...

    Not really, because your character isn't 'you'. The clue's in the word 'character' - it's not simply an avatar so there's no reason it should change with you at all. And certainly not entirely....
