Would random generated dungeon be more exciting than random generated symphony or novel?

I think you're confused. This is not a Diablo forum. Maybe your "lot more randomly generated loot" is in another castle?

Random dungeon generator means really really crappy puzzles.

i still play dungeon hack today because of that feature, they can added it as they can also add a level editor for people to work on level and puzzles, if you dont like the random dungeon generator you dont have to use it, u can enjoy the game your way

How is a random dungeon generator going to create the great, challenging puzzles that make this game what it is? You do realize that such puzzles need to be individually hand crafted, right? Without those puzzles, this game wouldn't be much fun.

Extreme scriptation kills replayability and extreme random dungeons kill the soul of a story and the quality of the maps.

But puzzles is another story. Puzzles must be hand made, otherwise the puzzle should be just "a key fit a door" type of puzzle.

For this type of game, were a random dungeon generator to be implemented, it would likely involve a large number of hand-made puzzles (or scripted variants of the same type of puzzles) that would then be randomly dropped within what would otherwise be a procedurally generated level.

I, for one, love the additional replayability that comes with a random dungeon generator and would love to see such a thing implemented, though I suspect this is something we can tackle on the modding side sometime further down the road if the developers are working on other features and/or other games.
