If you just read the Quest Log, you can find your objective without having to have someone hold your hand.
To be honest, the game can still be enjoyed fully with the help of World of Warcraft type quest mods. The game designers have carefully designed the quests to flow in an order and tell a story. If having a quest mod allows you to follow the quest without having to pause, check maps, forget what you were doing, then I feel that you are getting the experience the developers, or at least the quest writers, intended.
Another point is that many people have several characters at max level, and really don't want to go through the leveling process again and again, so they put a quest tracker on, an arrow on the screen, and watch some movie marathons on their second monitor. End game anyone?
