I also love the sense of time that's passed since the previous game. Bower Lake (now called Millfields) is populated with huge estates and other small buildings, and the road from Bower Lake to Bowerstone Market is completely lined with houses. I should have mentioned the game breaking bugs earlier. I'm usually fairly lucky with bugs (didn't see any in Fable II, nor anything game breaking in Fallout NV), but at least six times accessing the sanctuary has caused the Xbox to lock up. I haven't heard of anyone else having the same issue, so I dunno what's causing it.
