Nice hypocritical and condescending attitude.
It's best not to try and pull the sentence comprehension card on someone only to show you can't do it yourself. You specifically said "action games" and not "the action in games". This generally implies games that focus solely on the action, like Metal Gear Rising. Dishonored, among many others, is a stealth game that focuses on the avoidance of action.
This is what I meant by instant gratification and hand holding. Those "boring in-between sequences" allow you talk to the various characters in order to learn more about them and even the heart can warn you about future events in the story depending on who you point it at. However you rather not have that lull in the "action" of a game whose core game play exists of waiting. You would much prefer it if the game didn't have it at all only to throw you into the next "action" scene because fleshing out characters is boring to you, because you can't be arsed to move to the next scene or talk to and learn about the characters yourself, you want the game to do it for you.
If that's what you want in video games, then try playing Alien Shooter, Crimson Land, Call of Duty, Battlefield, Metal Gear Rising, Neir, F.E.A.R., ect... Literally any action focused game would better suit you than stealth games or RPGs.
