This reads fantastic to me.
Skyrim appealed to me because of the size, scope and openness of its world, but almost everything else about actually playing the game stopped me in my tracks. "Generic" is about the word I'd use. I'd also use terms such as "bland" and "dead behind the eyes". Especially now I'm stuck in to a play through of The Witcher 2 for the first time. The narrative, characterisation and focus of the game is in a completley different world to Skyrim, in my opinion.
If they can deliver on that interview, then The Witcher 3 is going to be some achievement.
