All in all, the moral choices in the Witcher do little other than help give character to the world.
That's not a bad thing to do, and they still help bring two great games to life. However, moral questions really don't play any interesting role in the Witcher games -as games-.

While I love both Witcher games, I just don't think any of the games out there (including the Witcher games) are doing moral choices anywhere near right, and only a few classic games came anywhere close themselves.
Spot on. The moral choices stuff is sucker deal as developpers struggle to implement the context required to role play a character.

Morality is more delicate than role play and aiming for the first while you struggle to deliver the second is jumping at the stars.
