There's the aesthetic factor, of course, but I don't really like the dark look of the high-level heavy armors.
I liked the Ebony Armor set, but then I downloaded a mod that made the Nightingale Armor blank by default, allowing me to enchant it with whatever. Definitely the coolest light armor set in the game. I don't care if I can't max out armor rating without going Dragonscale. I did find a mod that replaces the Dragonscale model with the Nightingale model, but I'm already invincible. Not only do I two-shot dragons (swords, bow, doesn't matter), I can take on an entire town at once and not get a dent. I'm not even maxed in Light Armor either.
Alas, the game has lost its hold on me. I've completed the Dark Brotherhood, the Thieves Guild, the civil war and the main storyline arcs. I know there's still the Mage's College, but I'm not a magic wielder anymore, so I've no real interest in doing it.
I also solved my love/hate relationship with Lydia. Married that wannabe merchant chick from Whiterun in the hopes that Lydia would actually give a ****. She showed up to the wedding, but she was all "I'm happy for you *le sigh*" so I snapped and shot her in the face. Twice. Then I proceeded to murder the chick I just married so I could inherit her wealth.
Speaking of the wedding ceremony, I was disappointed by the lack of attendees. I've helped everyone, everywhere, with everything, but only three people showed up to my wedding. What the ****?
