Suspension of disbelief is necessary in my honest opinion. It can end up pretty funny.
God why did I never think of this

Haven't played clear through it or anything but I got lost in it for like three days and ended up getting very little sleep. Some of the NPC's are so damned rude. I needed to be way strong so I could kill more of the smug bastards.

Now I'm imagining dragons in space. And it's glorious.

Honestly, for me, about the only break in suspension of disbelief (aside from bug-induced ones) is the ever-present problem of repeated dialogue. An NPC can only tell me the same thing in the same exact way so many times before I begin to think that they're addle-pated. This is a problem for me in almost all RPGs, though, and it's something I've come to accept.

A Bethesda/Obsidian collaboration would be both better and more likely.

I believe there is a race that can breath underwater. (Those reptile people, I think.)

I haven't played in months, do I don't remember the names of the races.

yeah, might've been an Argonian/enchantment because I've certainly almost drowned several times in the game. Though if you wanna go on about suspension of belief, I totally picked a lock slowly underwater after I was almost out of breath. However, given they got rid of instant opening spells, the world sure better stop for me when I'm picking a lock >_>

Really, I'm not one of those guys totally big on immersion in these games. I like that they have the potential for immersion, but I mostly enjoy the game if it's fun. I'm not going to complain that I can pause the game to drink my health potions because I derped. Like the only issue I have with fast travel is sometimes I can actually run to a location faster than the game thinks fast travel would be.

Yes...stupid NPCs...my undead follower I carry everywhere to store extra stuff is not some dangerous magic and I don't need to be reminded of it all the time Sometimes I feel like...oh yeah, I'll show you some dangerous magic.

I don't have an explanation for the fire thing, I haven't been everywhere yet so I don't even remember a Jovaaskr, but I know all fires don't do damage like in Arcadia's Cauldron, or perhaps you have fire resist.

Guys, you're talking about breaking immersion in a game where some of the first things people did was get caught stealing by chickens and put baskets on bystanders' heads to murder people without getting caught.
