Light steering has less feel than naturally loaded steering. When you turn the wheel the tires naturally strives to go straight and this force transmits to the steering. The more of this force that is passed through the "heavier" the steering feels. Factors like speed and grip determines the force on the tires and factors like the power assist boost and steering geometry determines how much force reaches the steering wheel. Light steering has less dynamic range and thereby reduces this aspect of feel. The steering feels more "numb".
