Like a catch 22, its only good if you're doing the theives guild and DB missions.
I actually really dig being a vampire. It's easy enough to manage as long as you fast travel instead of waiting, which I think helps me get more done anyway.

Going to every city to ask for help only to have to go close an Oblivion gate(barring Kvatch obviously) was the most tedious think i have ever done. Fair each gate is different, but I started it when i was level 20, so everything I fought on the way up was either a Storm atronach, a Spider Daedra, Or a high level Dremora with a Claymore, not particularly fun. In the end I wound up just constantly casting Invisibility and legging it up the towers.
The Oblivion gates can be tedious, but I enjoy the combat. Are you playing PC or XBox? Because on the PC, you can get Fransesco's mod, which adds a bunch of new creatures and changes the distribution and leveling of the creatures as well as adding a bunch of new weapons. So you never really know just what you'll encounter, and the fights get really hard even at high levels because you can encounter six or eight enemies at once. I suppose if I weren't using that mod, the dungeon crawling wouldn't be as fun.
