And to be fair, by then the Infinity Engine just failed to impress after Morrowind and Dungeon Siege (looked pretty at the time, still sucked). And it wasn't so much looks either, it was still gorgeous 2D, but there were no surprises, same basic mechanics as previous games (at least Planescape mixed it up quite a bit).
It wasn't the mechanics that bothered me about IWD2, it was that the story just didn't stick with me at all. I lost interest the first time I played it, not so with IWD. Though I will say the ending was better. The ending for IWD was pathetic.
