This is something I think gets overlooked FAR too often, when developing. 
It's one thing to slow a player down so that they don't advance "too 
quickly" (whatever your definition of that is), but it's entirely 
another, to introduce "busy work" into the game - unless, of course, this 
is part of the foundation of your game. But then, how many people like 
spending their free time doing busy work? :)
