Killzone has always had an interesting sounding backstory that never really got developed because the main story in K2 was paper-thin.

That said, K3 is promising to have a focus on story this time so I'm actually more excited for the SP component than the MP. And that's very rare for me with FPS's

The main quest was what? 6 missions? Lame story of "Find daddy". The heart of Fallout 3 was the side quests. Like the small town of cannibals had me totally engrossed even though it was really quick.
