Delightfully caustic, but not entirely fair IMO. Bioware does repeat itself a lot, but occasionally it pulls off its formula rather nicely. I quite liked BG2, Jade Empire, and KOTOR. NWN OC and ME, not so much.

Also, SoU and HotU didn't follow the formula at all that slavishly; the latter was in fact quite good, perhaps because it didn't attempt to be anything fancier than an exciting high-level dungeon crawl through epic and exotic locations. (OK, it did have an optional clingy elf girlfriend or two, but you can't have everything, can you now?)
