Really? Well to each their own I guess, but I found it quite the opposite. Each expansion is bigger and better than the last and the free to play model is excellently done. It's still very much in sync with the books, but again it's best to look at it as an adaption rather than anything since some liberties had to be made to make the game enjoyable but I found it to be very in the spirit of Tolkien.
I'd be curious as to what you made of the movies though.
