Mainly because being a Warrior was a lot simpler.
The OP complained about not getting into the story. As a Mage, I find that there are a lot more elements I have to focus on-- my range, my threat, which spell is more appropriate for the given situation, etc. Though the two are separate elements, I figured that maybe focusing a little less on combat-- or being a little less frustrated with it, depending on the difficulty this person is playing or their own skills-- would help them focus a little more on the story. Also, when starting my Mage character and leveling up, I moved a lot from one skill tree to the next to figure out what I wanted to do with the character-- which is great and allows a lot of customization. However, the OP also mentioned disliking how the skill trees move. While this is only a minor annoyance and not really impacting the game, I didn't use as many trees as a Warrior. Though I can only base my replies on my personal experience, I was trying to suggest a way for the OP to have a little more fun themselves.
Don't get me wrong, I'm having a lot of fun with Mage, too. But I chose the class mainly for a little more of a challenge-- which with the options and extra combat considerations it delivers, it has been.
