I have a love-hate relationship with this game. It’s wonderful, but also deeply flawed and unfinished.
A while back I mentioned a user-made patch to fix the graphics problems so that the game will actually run as promised. Now here is another user-made mod that fixes the countless broken quests, AI flukes, misplaced objects, missing objects, and other bugs and annoyances with the game. Look at that list of bug fixes. It’s shockingly huge.
I wouldn’t mind a few broken quests. This game world is complex and the AI is ambitious. The game is so huge that a dedicated team of beta testers couldn’t hope to play all of the possible quests in every possible way, looking for unforseen effects and outcomes. To a certain extent, you need this game to go out to the masses before you can find all the problems.
What makes me mad is that the current official patch is marked as “final” and they do not plan on any further updates. Given the sheer volume of issues, that is just shameful. This game is not done, and these guys should do the right thing and finish the job.
Again, kudos to the mod community for tracking down and fixing these bugs. Seriously, Bethesda should send them a cut of the earnings.

His problem isn't that he's dumb, the problem is that he bends the world he inhabits.
