Just played the Burning Wheel Dune Expansion set at a mini-con in my area. Gotta say, that's the most fun I've had in a long time. It would be SUCH a blast to DM, but takes a seriously dedicated person to do so.
If you've never played, it is a massively detailed system. Your skills are based on the life story you craft, and you can only craft life stories logically by moving from stage to stage (childhood -> pre teen -> teen->etc) and choosing what you did at those times. Crazy fun. Crazy skills (I had 3 points in cooking....and it won the game for me as I used it to prepare an extravagant meal and poison the baron).
I love me some Dune all day everyday. I'll have to check it out. I've listened to people make Burning Wheel characters and I really liked the character creation which seems to follow what your describing.
