I feel the main thing detracting from the custom player experience is that many people are not used to filling in all the details themselves. It isn't hard to make a backstory that is interesting, people just have to be creative. I am glad the companions are going to be unique, it is way better than Skyrim burden carriers and meatshields, and makes it a bit more like a DnD game.
