Did you play games (of any style) that drag on and on, and you'd wish it end asap?

It's only happened with Halo 2's campaign. Hasn't happened to me with other games.

If it's boring...then yes.
If its fun & entertaining...then no.

Transformers: War For Cybertron had this problem in recent memory, otherwise the Halo 3 I believe achieved the same problem for quite a while at the start of the campaign.

Long levels are a tiring concept, you have to give people a break from repetitive gameplay.

Far Cry 2. Loved the first half, and it would have been the right length had it ended there. Did not really like the second half at all. To the point I never finished it.

I thought that Resident Evil 6 tended to drag on too long at many parts.

depends on the type of "game being to long" it has, if a game forces you to replay the main mission after you've already beaten it to get to the parts your wanting to play then yes that would be too long of a game. however if you beat a game, and by beating it it unlocks the ability to go directly to any part of the campaign then no the games not too long. most games nowdays have replay by collecting or achieving things within the campaign, and often times its easy to miss those things the first time through.
