That is the crux of it for me (Destiny)

I don’t think that’s a very good argument.

If you are choosing to skip say, a side quest or something, that does not mean it isn’t meaningfully integrated into the game experience. In fact, just like secrets, their mere inclusion also improves the game even if you don’t do them! They exist to expand and deepen the world. The player doesn’t know what lies ahead, and this feeling affects you ask you play. What depths does this world hold?

But if you just buy the stupid side quest separately, you know exactly what lies ahead and the experience changes dramatically.

I don't necessarily agree. If I buy a ticket to a puzzle room or a haunted house, do I know exactly what lies ahead?
