I found it to be quite a bit worse than BG2 and many other RPG's including DA:O. Good you like it, though.
It's damn near universally considered a perfect rpg. BG2 is good but storywise isn't even close. I play rpgs. That is my preferred game type and I have never found it's equal in games.
I'll ignore the fact that Dragon Age was even mentioned as being better.
That is not dead which can eternal lie and withs strange aeons even death may die.
