I'm currently playing through act3 as Durge and here is how it looks to me, in hindsight:
Finished, packed and polished.
Unfinished, rushed and sparse. You can practically feel the budget/devtime vanishing(though ironically, you will never see the shadowcurse subside) halfway through.
Unfinished, cobbled together from whatever they already had half done, in a rush. It's crammed with half cooked gameplay, hacked together story bits and rushed/missing resolutions in equal part. Some aspects of it, like the circus, feel like an afterthought filler built around spare voice lines in the last minute. While others, like Sorcerous Sundries, have a shine of thoroughly polished turd, by people who weren't given anything else to do for weeks on end.
Cannibalized in it's infancy by Act3, which now wear's it's overstretched skin like a "mankini".
