Imperius was unhappy not at the decision that he made, he was unhappy that Tyrael broke the pact forged during the Sin War that stated that no angel or demon should interfere with Sanctuary.

Tyrael did not break any pacts because no pacts were in effect when he interfered. The demons already broke the pact several times with Diablo raising hell in Sanctuary, Mephisto
corrupting the Zakarum, Baal corrupting the Worldstone.
So the pact was not there since hell never really respected it. Tyrael destroying the stone actually protected heaven, and no pacts were broken.

Not to mention all that sweet magical loot.

You know you are still on the story forum right? Stuff like people bought it for the gameplay don't really fly here. People who complain here respected the lore enough to give a damn about it. We can talk about how bad the gameplay is and how many bad ideas they put into it but it would be besides the point IN THIS PLACE.
Sweet magical loot? maybe in the AH, all you get ingame is !@#$ that may have been good 10 levels ago. RPG like experience? not bloody likely, as no growth is implied anymore. Reach 60, find a skill set that works stick with it forever. You don't really grow those skills anymore and you don't feel like they matter because you can change them around all the time.
Most are just plain bad, and the ones that do something good have a let down built in, making you realize that that is it, they will not grow to be better.
Real money AH... I don't really have to say anything about this. Paying for items in a game that should be about constant grinding to get that marginally better item is just stupid. Some guy on youtube quit the game outright after he bought his first real money item, and i do get it why. That can happen on it's own, but buying stuff instead of looking for it ends the game.
So there, some of us have issues even with the "stellar" gameplay. Next time please try and stick to the story.
