Now I say this because I find I often don't read the quest text, so I don't get emersed in the story. It's a really horrible habit of mine, but it's a game, so I'm allowed to play it however I want.
Now I'm not saying that LotRO doesn't have a sense of wimsy. I've already got a feathered had that proves that they're not to serious, but WoW isn't afraid to be completely silly.
