Ulfric is alright but has things to work on before he becomes the High King. I'll still support him because the Empire is failing and it is time for the Provinces to go back to their original set-up. Only one bloodline is good for the Empire and that bloodline died in Oblivion.
Though, I feel bad for the Emperor in Skyrim He was a Hero who help saved Tamriel...
Only negative thing I like about Ulfric is his racism toward the Dunmer. Stupid Elves kept my Argonian Friends as slaves for too long and they are getting what they deserve!
To be honest, in my opinion the civil war questline was the worst that skyrim had (college of winterhold did come close though). It could have been interesting, but you just end up attacking forts. You have to clear out like 5 of them, it gets annoying really fast.
My huge skyrim mod what I will make when the creation kit comes out will have an entirely different civil war as it's main storyline and I will actually try to do it well, since a civil war plot has quite a lot of potential.
Well if that's the case, you will have to wait for quite awhile xD It will be a side project for me while I am working on my game [link] The mod will mostly be like a "portfolio project". And well my plan is to make a mod which uses as little skyrim assets as possible and offer the player an unique and a new game world to explore. So it will probably take several years to make.
Yes it is very ambitious, maybe even a bit too much. But to be honest, it would help me and the people who worked on it to get into the gaming industry easier. One thing is having a portfolio with some random good looking works you made and another is to have an actual product what you can play, in your portfolio, what took you and several other talented people years to make. That really proves that you have passion for these kinds of things.
And I am not the only one, for example take a look at Nehrim. A mod for oblivion [link]
