First off, are they trying to say simple is bad and complex is better?? I guess if you like a challenge, but why over complexify things? I say stick with the KISS method.
Second, how does 3.5 have any more "in-depth" roleplaying than 4e. The role-playing aspect of any game is up to the players and the
Usually when I create adventures (which is my prefer way of planning sessions rather than pre-made) I have to start with some ideas based on the campaign. They usually start with two options:
