Bethesda developer Brendan Anthony has written a developer diary about the magic system in Oblivion. It basically talks about the spell effects, using swords and spells, and if you don't want to use a sword:

"Yeah", I hear you say, "that’s all well and good for Battlemages, but what about all of us pure magic users?" Take my advice – lose the sword and replace it with a staff enchanted with a ranged spell. These babies act just like rocket launchers; when used, the caster holds the staff out in front of him/herself and hurls a powerful projectile out of the business end. Best of all, just like normal weapons, you are able to use these enchanted staffs while casting regular spells with your free hand, an experience that you won’t want to miss. Combine all of this with the fact that Magicka now regenerates constantly (just like Fatigue, albeit more slowly) and mages can be pretty badass indeed.​
What's not to like about rocket launchers?

Thanks, Bluebottle!
