There is no way Planescape could be any less than one of the best games out there. I don't care if it had the worst ending in the history of bad endings. I'm talking Indiana Jones 4 bad. It would still be one of the best RPG in my library. The reason being the journey to the end was what made that game great.

I'm glad it didn't have a horrible conclusion to that wonderful game, but it wouldn't stop me from playing it again.

Knowing the ending hurts any replay. You already know what is going to happen so what is the point. The reason I replay any game is the same reason I reread any good book. I want to relive the experience of getting to the end.

Anyway, we all have different criteria when playing a RPG and we all probably have different definitions on what a RolePlaying game is. I just happen to enjoy the adventure much more than the actual conclusion.
I agree, KoToR II to me was a much better experience to me than the 1st and than most RPGs, but the last few hours of the game fell apart. I still loved the game and wasn't disappointed by it.

But like with other games, if some part of it excels and speaks to you whether it's the gameplay mechanics (TOEE's combat engine), the setting (Morrowind/Arcanum) or the depth (Arcanum), then the flaws don't ruin the overall experience.

Oblivion cares about YOU!
