This is a constant source of frustration.
Here's the scenario: I play Skyrim for a few hours and have several new saves. I quit playing Skyrim and decide to download a new app. The screen that comes up for the app download says Please Wait or something to that effect but nothing happens for a long time. Finally, I go check Active Downloads and see that it's syncing my Skyrim saves first. I rotate between 10 saves and syncing 10 saves takes at least 10 minutes, sometimes more. The app will not download until the saved games are synced. That is super frustrating in itself but the most frustrating part is that I would have never known that was the reason the app wasn't downloading unless I went to the Active Downloads screen. No indication whatsoever otherwise.
Am I missing something? Is there an option that will let me just download the app and not have to wait 10 or more minutes? It seems ridiculous. I've stopped using cloud saved games because of it.
