Hm, that's an interesting perspective. I admit it has never bothered me before, but I can appreciate why it might not sit right with some. I suppose this is just my particular personality, but the ideas and concepts are a huge part of the "epic" for me. A room of 40 people and a giant fire monster aren't enough for me. On the other hand, I quested through Grizzly Hills and helped Drakuru... and look what happened. The betrayal, the consequences for the trolls of Zul'drak and their Gods. That, for me, was more epic than many of the raids I've been in. In Lord of the Rings, some of the most epic moments for me aren't the big battles (of which there are many), they are the conversations. The insights that hit you like a sledgehammer. I don't really know where I'm going with this... basically, I found Tirion's speech at the beginning of ICC more epic than a lot of the bosses. Give me reasons, ideas, insights, revelations... and then I'll be in awe. Giant monsters are a dime a dozen, they don't excite me, regardless of the spacing/scaling of the environment.
