Default DOW Games: Different Questions

Dawn of War
Dawn of War 2
Dawn of War 2: Chaos Rising
Dawn of War 2: Retribution

I loved playing all of these games and I am a huge fan of the WH40k world, heck I check this site even before my own and before any other sites when I wake up in the morning.

Why then have I failed to finish any of the campaigns of the above games?

I was so excited when I found out you could play through the campaign as the different races or characters. I thought it was absolutely amazing that you could get about 300-400 hours out of a game when most games now are 8-16. I have played through the campaign of DoW2 up until I cannot level anymore and I lose interest but cannot place my finger on why.

One of the reasons I could think of is that I am a FPS person first and foremost and when I start to lose interest in gaming in general as a whole I notice my gaming choices go from COD to Borderlands 2 to DoW type games and then I play nothing for days to months.

Does anyone else have this problem? Is it because there is no new DLC or even fan made mods?

Does/has anyone else stopped playing for similar reasons? Or to those that have stopped playing before completing the game fully what are your reasons?

I am a big fan of DoW 1 and finished all of the campaigns for all of the modules.

DoW 2 however, I only finished one. Not sure why but I think it might have been the more individual focus of the 2 series was less enthralling.
