They implemented this system for one reason and one reason only. To make you run around and waste time. I can't count how often I ended up on the other side of the map just to run all the way back to complete the final step while passing countless other quests which I could have completed on the way back. I thought we were past this shit?!
And don't tell me they did this so you can concentrate more on the quests... it's the same old 'kill x' or 'fetch this' type 90% of the time.
