That sentiment (while unpopular) is shared by Rich and Jack of Previously Recorded (which is was a gaming spin off show of Red Letter Media). Their take of Naughty Dog games since Uncharted 1 is that more than half of the time you're not playing anything, but watching cutscenes... which is boring in their opinion. And furthermore, even when you are playing the game, they feel that they are scripted events with next to no stakes or real challenge.
I've personally never played those games, however I have played the Tomb Raider reboot, which was modeled after that style... and something felt... off, about the whole experience. I had similar feelings about Castlevania Lord's of Shadow, maybe there's no connection. Anyway, I don't think that you're wrong, and you've got every right to feel that way.
Ah yes, who can forget the legendary gaming opinion of Rich and Jack, which is only bolstered by your own complete and total lack of personal experience.

Unbelievable. Maybe, MAYBE, if you set the difficulty to easy, and tried your hardest to make such a scenario a reality, ignoring every game play element possible, maybe, that is something that could be realized. It would be a high water mark for Rich Evens, eclipsing the time he laughed uncontrollably for 45 minutes watching movie trailers, while simultaneously eating year-old popcorn from the folds of his furniture.
