    Don't know if it is an halt, but sure it's struggling. Two problems imho: 1) AI: still very far from having NPC with believable interactions (see the Turing test); 2) the space of possibilities!! this is a problem intrinsic to interactive entertainment in general. The moment you grant the player free will to do what he wants and go where he wants, there are simply way too many outcomes that should be considered. So far, it's either synthesizing information on the fly, or simply amassing a huge amount of content, hoping it will be enough, and of course it will never be enough.
