They are trying to make you insane and worship EA.

They're on a private tropical island, sipping margaritas and laughing because they know you think they're developing Spore.

That, or finalizing content, sound, artwork (I guess there isn't much, if any of this) etc, and of course, bug smashing.

I think the oblivion team spent much of their time on option 1

Sound and bug testing as well as balancing passes are usually the last things to be done so hopefully their doing those  :P They could also be adding in a small desired easily fullfilled feature here and there.

or maybe they dont ant to be like the other game studios <lionhead!> and hype it so much before release that the hype was actually more fun than the game. Who says 4 months anyway? July isnt in autumn (fall ::)).
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.
