I'm a couple of hours into this game (I'm at the dungeon with all of those rule puzzles) and I'm, let's say, intrigued at the amount of times this game tends to make fun of its boring/bad design. When given a fetch quest for example, your book sidekick Weiss will say something along the lines of: "Another fetch quest, why don't we do something interesting?" This is just one example of many. The game tends to do it a lot and I don't know whether or not I should laugh at it.
It's like Duke Nukem Forever when Duke says: "Valve puzzles suck" and yet the player is forced to do it.
Any other examples of games that do this?
