Regarding quests, "Capture the flag", "plant the bomb", "kill this guy", "follow that one" is about as sophisticated as Borderlands gets.
It has quests, stats, talents and levelling. Of course it's an RPG, albeit a first person one with guns.
Even your average CoD/BF teenager can see that.
Not to mention, the average CoD/BF wouldn't even look at Borderlands if it weren't, basically, a shooter.
Seems to me the FPS fans are more likely to demand difficulty than the RPG guys, whose complaints would lie elsewhere.
