Also I accidentally killed a chicken while fighting a blood dragon, and for some reason the blood dragon was a witness to the chicken’s slaughter, coz once I killed it it said “last witness killed, 40 bounty removed”

??? ?? ??????? ? ??????

"For all his mistakes, I still think Titus Mede II was a decent leader. He became Emperor when the Thalmor were at their strongest. He was pushed into a disastrous war, and only signed the Concordat (a potentially politically-suicidal move for himself) to prevent more deaths after he personally led the retaking of the Imperial City. The fact that he still worships Talos despite the Concordat shows that he’s not really a puppet either but is trying to play the long game. IMO, Titus gets more flack than he deserves."

He is DEFINITELY playing the game. The fact that his class is Assassin and he worships Boethiah suggests that he worships the very god of scheming. Who knows what kind of plans that guy made and put into motion before he died.

"For a game that allows you to do pretty much anything you want, I was disappointed that you couldn’t join Alduin’s side, betray him and become the new Dragon King or something like that. Being forced to be the hero of the story when you can be the greatest asshole that ever lived in Skyrim is kind of paradoxical."

Fighting Alduin does NOT make you a good guy. It makes you into someone who has a common sense of protecting your own hide (he wants to kill everything, including you).
Also, being a Hero doesn’t make you a good guy either. Only in some modern literature does the “Hero = good” rule apply and even that trope is slowly dissipating. Great many heroes in Classical Literature were downright villains with their behavior. A Hero is nothing else but a glorified mercenary who can be either good or bad… and Skyrim kinda supports the “Dark Path” more than it does the “Light Path”,

"I really don’t understand why people get their panties in a bunch when someone says they like the Thalmor. Just because you hate something doesn’t mean everyone is going to stop liking it to appease you after you complain or leave hatemail. Some of us like them and are going to continue to do so."

Because they are idiots who think that liking a villain equals agreeing with what they do -_-; Ironically, the Thalmor fans tend to be the nicest people in the community (mainly because they understand the border between a game and the real life)

"I’m so frustrated by the lack of good political options with the Civil War quest line. It is like we are forced to chose between white supremacists and white imperialists who are also pretty bigoted. "
http://skyrimconfessions.com

Many Imperials have tanned skin so they ain’t really white ^^;
Anyway, that is the whole fucking point of forcing you to make choices. Civil Wars are all about bitter decisions and only the suckiest writers try to water it down into “But Main Character finds a perfect option!” You are not supposed to feel good here, you are supposed to think about what option has a chance to end in a better outcome.

"The more I read, and the more  I listen to dialogue I’m finding that there’s a lot of reasons to join the Imperials rather than the Stormcloaks."
http://skyrimconfessions.com/

That’s one of better moves from Beth’s part IMO: at start and play through Riverwood and Whiterun you get the idea that Stormies = good, Empire = oppressive… but as the game goes on, it becomes more and more gray and SC seem less and less perfect while IC seems less and less wrong. Whiterun joining the Empire was no doubt made like that just to shaken the players who thought everything would be nice and dandy if they joined the SC.
Skyrim may not have the best story out there but by Akatosh they sure did a great job of splitting the community into IV and SC supporters ;D

"Try as I might, I just cannot bring myself to like the Dark Brotherhood. The idea of a secret organization of assassins is appealing to me, but I can’t stand the questline, or any of the characters involved."
http://skyrimconfessions.com/

A shame that Dragonborn DLC did not add the Morag Tong guild into the game. It would have been cool to play with assassins who try to be as honorable as an assassin can be.

"I can’t help but feel empathy for the Stormcloaks after talking to one of the priests in Riften. It must be hard to have lived their own traditional life with their own beliefs and to have that all challenged when you just want to continue your lives as you usually do."

 Imperials have it worse: they are even more fanatical about Talos and have worshiped him for five centuries (while Nords only started worshiping him as a god somewhere in last 200 years, before that he was just another part of Hero worship besides Ysgrammor, Wulfarth, etc.)
The only reason why you don’t hear Imperials complain as much is because they know just how ruthless and dangerous the Dominion is (the guys practically committed genocides over entire Imperial cities) and thus are more understanding of the idea of clenching teeth for a few decades (once the Concordant is gone, Talos worship will be restored)… whereas Nords seem to think that Cyrodiil is still a utiopia or something.

"I really wish you didn’t have to join the Thieves Guild and College of Winterhold as part of the main storyline. It’s really frustrating when trying to play a rather noble character and getting dragged down into the Thieves Guild against your wishes or forced to learn magic that you’re never going to use again just for ONE questline."

Don’t know about the College but you don’t need to join the TG: the Ratway is open to everyone.

"In seasons unending I find it interesting that Delphine and Ulfric seem to be acquainted. Does Ulfric stop by the Sleeping Giant Inn for drinks? Does Delphine go on vacation in Windhelm? No, I don’t think so. Ulfric is a Thalmor plant, as we all know. I think Delphine is too, Perhaps the Thalmor are using Delphine to convince the Dragonborn to kill Paarthurnax because they see him as a threat. Just a Theory…."

Ulfric ceased to be a Thalmor plant after the Markarth Incident. It is just that all his actions are of use to his enemies :P
As for Delphine, I guess that Ulfric tries to ally with the Blades who, too, were banned by the White Gold Concordant.
