    Fable III.

    I loved Fable II but Fable III just bored me. The mechanics are so stripped back (leveling) they are almost non-existent. The removal of the menu sometimes made it difficult to know where to go next or how to complete side quests (which is probably the opposite the were going for).

    I got to the point where I became King and it consisted of about 15 minutes where my only interaction with the game was pressing X or B to make two or three binary choices that I didnt care about.

    The combat is as close to pure button mashing as I've ever encountered. You can literally spam the spell button and win every fight.

    The world was as charming ever and I loved the regional accents. But that was about it. Not enough to hold my attention.

    Playing Limbo now which is amazingly good.
