You almost always talked to the same characters (and there were only a few), while these conversations never ever went beyond basic gameplay-instructions. I missed the little stories all the characters in the Banjo games had, which made the worlds feel pretty stale (for me at least).
Yeah I got that vibe from the game as well. When it comes to the cast of supporting characters, the Banjo games have DK64 beat. It's just the amount of collectibles in DK64 that I enjoyed. It really encourages you to actually explore every nook and cranny of the world in a non-linear fashion.
Banjo-Tooie was a pretty good mix of DK64's large, collectible-filled worlds and Kazooie's pure character and charm.
