I am currently playing Dungeon Siege 2. It has a limited inventory and random item-drops, a lot of random item-drops. So with your limited inventory you must go to a merchant every 10 minutes. Needless to say it takes you out of immersion and it also is rather annoying.
Oh and MdKnightR. No one stops you to roleplay your inventory. Just decide what is in your characters inventory and use only that. No need for the engine to force a limited backpack on you.
They could make a bank that holds credits and items.
