Pacing is to do with the player's sense of "continuing action" throughout the game. When the pacing grinds to a halt, speeds up too much or is too inconsistent, gameplay suffers.

Puzzles are often used to control the pacing of IF games, although a sense of feeling "stumped" by a puzzle can also undermine it (see this RAIF discussion thread).
