Game doesn't really start until level cap, and even then depending on when you get there and start doing stuff it might not be challenging anymore thanks to all the nerfs (for example, if you were to hit 85 right now and start raiding, you'd probably say it's still too easy, but that's because we're at the end of the expansion and everything has been nerfed hard, except the T11 heroics). When content is current, it definitely poses a challenge. None of the low level stuff is supposed to be challenging.
If you actually want an MMORPG, WoW is probably going to be your best bet. But you have to keep in mind the game doesn't really start until you hit max level, which means there's a pretty big time commitment upfront. People can say what they want about WoW, but there's a reason it's still around and going strong relative to every other MMO out there.
And yeah, MMORPG and non-time committing don't really go together, so you might want to redefine exactly what it is you're looking for if the time commitment is a deal breaker. WoW can at times not require much time at all (there are people in my guild right now that log in for 2 hours a week since that's what it takes us to clear), but if raiding is your thing then during progression you'll have to spend anywhere from 8 hours on up per week just raiding, depending on your guild's raiding schedule.
I will suggest though that you check out Ogame
if you haven't already. It's basically a browser-based MMO RTS which you can put as little or as much time into it as you want (though just like any game you'll never really do "well" by putting as little time as possible into it). The one thing I despised about this game though was that to do decently well after the beginning phase, you had to very carefully plan everything to fit into your life. If you play the game you'll figure out more about this kind of thing, but basically if you did your thing at night and planned on getting on it for just a second in the morning before work, you pretty much HAD to get on for that second in the morning before work, or else a lot of hard work and time could go completely to waste. If you're running late for work and don't have time to get on, or if you get stuck in traffic on the way home and can't get online till a couple hours after you planned, a lot of your **** could be gone, and that's just not fun imo.
