Can you screw up a character like you could in Oblivion?

Yeah it wasn't that bad. But I guess compared to this game you could gimp your character pretty much right at the point of creation.

I remember making a godly female dark elf w/ 100 in all skills, 100 in all attributes, capped resist and 101% damage reflect.

Was NOT hard to do like...at all...

The only way you could screw up a build in Oblivion is if you didn't know how to make a hybrid class.

I screwed it up having not played an Elder Scrolls game before Oblivion. After learning how the system worked playing and reading up on some suggested character builds I scrapped my first character and had a lot more fun with a better build for round two.

Yes, it was easy to understand and overcome, but that was when I read up on it. Oblivion was my first ES game so I was just leveling what I wanted. The stat differences don't make a difference that much if you're trying to max or not, its only a point here or point there, but when you get two max level characters where one was trained to max out leveling while the other wasn't it makes a big difference.

Yes but who cares about min/maxing when it seriously isn't needed.

I played a Breton mage. Never put a single point into Endurance. I used the Necromancer's Amulet draining my endurance to a mere 6 points. Never had a problem with it even though I had almost no health. In fact, it made it even more fun knowing that I could die from pretty much anything.
