>different play experiences.

Honestly asking: have you never played anything outside the OGLd20 oeuvre, because that's genuinely the only way I could see someone actually being able to consider the differences between the different flavors of 3e noticeable, much less significant. Either that or you're just a troll who enjoys edition wars.

When 4th fixed everything, and people literally called it "not D&D" because it wasn't broken garbage.

They're sure as shit not fucking novellas.

> and an incredibly good study in how to use words effectively.
Alexander Pope is a study in how to use words effectively. Not a single word is misplaced or unnessecary. Every line has genuine meaning independent of its rhyme pair. Each rhyme pair genuinely has meaning independent of its stanza. Each stanza has genuine meaning that none of its composite parts brought to the table. Tolkien is a study in how to use words wastefully with the assumption that that readers will trudge through literally any drudgery for the promise of one day reaching SOMETHING.

>The psychology, and for lack of a better word "class" of any given character, which is usually apparent from 1-2 lines of dialog. The ambiguity of power and evil. The question as to what sorts of values are actually worth holding onto in life or death struggles.
Look, I'm sure there are some gems there, but they're burred in thousands and thousands of wasted words that add nothing but time to the experience of reading it. Full disclosure: I didn't finish any of the books other than The Hobbit, because I frequently got bored, and occasionally literally fell asleep, or forgot the content of entire pages after finishing them because none of it added anything of value. Sure you could argue that if I HAD finished, maybe I would have found the gems of philisophical/psychological discussion, or it would have reframed all of that wasteful word swamp into something of value, but the fact that I and so many others can't be bothered because of how boring it is UNTIL that point is a big black mark against it.
>Maybe he didn't think that you need blood and sex every 10 pages
Not necessarily sex and violence...GRRM tries that and suffers the same wasteful wordage and "boring outside of screen" problem, like most novelists. It's not my job as a consumer to say what flavor to add, just that there wasn't any.

The pylon wouldn't drive the psykers mad in that scenario... the lack of an Astronomicon did. The Imperium is heavily dependent on a astropaths and navigators to function, and all of them rely entirely on the astronomicon to do their job. To them, the astronomicon is the constant point of order, sensibility, and comfort, that's constantly been humming calmly to them since they were children, in a world where it's literally their job to thrust their minds into a maddening hellscape to aid the survival of humanity.

TLDR: in that scenario, it wasn't the pylon itself that fucked the imperium, it's the turning off of the Astronomicon. You can't turn off the astronomicon. That's like "why the imperium has let itself become so fucked up 101.l"
