While there is some amount of fun that can be derived from giving the player limited resources and forcing them to choose to upgrade X or Y...

When those limited resources are absolutely finite. In Deus Ex you get a set amount of experience as you progress through the game to put toward abilities. You can't grind for it; you get what you get. This is meaningful progression that isn't bullshit. When there is no upper bound to what you can earn it becomes pointless because it's not decision making so much as just a test of how much time you want to spend earning resources. Because you could just grind out cores all day long and power everything up. It's not the resources that are limited: it's your time.
