The overall personal story was rushed to begin with. The way Trahearne gets to his position and your character's rise is probably the same. I wouldn't be too hard on the character. He is pretty stereotypical "knight in shining armor" , but that doesn't necessarily mean he is bad.
I am mostly happy that the pact gets involved, is MAKES SENSE. It was silly enough that they would ignore the destruction of Lion's Arch since we tried to hard to defend it and if they ignored another dragon that would have been really stupid. I only hope for better pacing.

I would suggest you to try some free to play games, I am co-playing Warthunder and Warframe with GW2. They are completely different genres, but I like them all. I very much disliked Wildstar and ESO, but that's a matter of preference. Star wars games are for star wars fans, i would not suggest it for you if you are looking for the MMO part, but for the franchise (the personal story was great). I heard good things about Archage, you may look into it.
Diablo 3 and Torchlight 2 are great games, I would always suggest them both.
There are tons of good single player games, check the steam sales. :)

Beside the above advice, you should think about refreshing your software. Windows reinstall always makes a difference from my observations.

And for PvP...

It is straight up just terrible and boring. WvWvW has the same 2 maps, and its all zerging.

WvWvW they place you in a map that is WAY too big, and way too repetitive, the only way to participate is by zerging, and even then you're just travelling with an army and you reach the destination and auto attack. And that's WvWvW for you. If there's no commander, there's no WvWvW because nobody will have any motive to do anything especially when not zerging.

That's the hard truth dedicated GW2 players won't admit.

Haha, no. Sorry, but your "truth" does  not reflect what i see every time when i log in for guild ops. Only a person who does not play WvWvW would say that. My server is around 10th place in Europe and the WvWvW community is very organized , all guilds interact with each-other , there are "public commanders" who are for random players and everyone are communicating via Team speak. It is not "zerging" content. It was at launch, a long two years ago.

The only point that I would agree on is that the maps are getting stale, but the people are so used to them than a lot of WvWers did not want to try Edge of the mists because of the different layout.

Depending on what you consider "endgame" may make or break the game for you. Endgame is little vertical progression (gear grind) and gigantic horizontal one (tons of skins and collectables). A matter of structured PVP (sPVP) Everyone agrees it's not good. It's okay for the casual PVE-ers and WvW players, but not for the hardcore crowd. If this is what you are looking for, I would not recommend GW2 for you.

As the other thing you asked:
-The game if fairly balanced, but there is always an endless discussion about sPVP.
-In terms of population all zones are filled with people every time i log.
-Dungeons are mostly fun, a lot of people are running them, but there are few unpopular.
-Classes are interesting if you are unfamiliar with GW1, so yea, you may like them.
-I am one of the people who plays realm vs realm and to this day I still love it. There is also an "endless" progression in it.
NOTE: Mind you, that PVE and WvW share your progression , but sPVP is completely separate and players start and equal ground in it.
-I would consider it "fresh" for breaking the standard MMO model set by World of Warcraft, but ESO borrowed many mechanics from it, so it may not look so different for you.

So the game is worth a purchase, I have been playing it since the open beta and I am still an active player. Worth a full price if you are into this kind of video games.
