The Elder Scrolls V: Oblivion II

I'm sorry that this post is this short. But I have a question: How do you make a "direct sequel" to a game that had one hour of story. I loved The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. Not because of the story, because that sucked monkey balls but because of the freaking thieves guild and the game world. To see the sunrise/sunset in Anvil was awesome. To own a house and steal every single spoon in the game was awesome aswell. But the story was horrible. How do you make a follow up to something that was as boring and wierd as Guns N' Roses?

I thought the story was decent. And it was more then one hour..

eh, I dont think I like having a elder scrolls game thats a direct sequel to a previous elder scroll. The appeal of the game is exploring new areas of the world that you only saw on your pull up map in a previous game, but could not go to and no details were given on it besides the geographical name. thats the appeal of Elderscrolls to me, exploring new lands.  
 
Honestly, and this is coming from a person who LOVES elderscrolls, Im a little worried about what im hearing so far.

The main story wasn't more then that. You could dig deep into it but you didn't really find out more. The quest aside of the main story were awesome but I would want them to move on now and try to give us something new.

The story is most definitely longer than an hour. Let's hope they mix up the environment a bit^^

Hopefully the next game will have a more engaging main quest than "Go close a hojillion Oblivion Gates."

@Eisen:  Best guesses right now are Skyrim or the Summerset Isles.
