You raise a lot of good points Marco; someone who shares your values about what's enjoyable in the game and in roleplaying would do well to follow your advice here. The thing is, however, that there's no one form of roleplaying which will work perfectly for everyone. People who enjoy total immersion RP like it for a number of reasons -- first of all they enjoy those same creative challenges you say are a waste of time, but more importantly, they don't want to bring real world issues into their fantasy game. They want to shut all that out for a while -- and why not? Just like you don't want to bother with excluding all real-life references, they don't want to bother with including them. That said, there are a lot of different ways of doing total-immersion too. Some really go for explaining away every detail, but most tend to just overlook and ignore a lot of the things that get in the way of their stories. Nobody complains about the lack of toilets in any big cities, for instance. Everyone is just trying to find the balance they enjoy most.
