I feel you. When I finally decided to play it, I wasn't expecting much. It is quite a pleasant surprise. The create-a-character interface alone is entertaining. Sadly, it doesn't really feel like a full fledged game. After playing for a few hours, you can see where the development went wrong... but hell, it's still a really fun game to play. I just sat for another hour or so losing on a mission. Not once did I get mad at it... just sitting and doing the same thing over and over again. That is some good design.
