Indeed, KotOR is the "leap" in that type of storytelling and gameplay, as it was the first and set a standard. KotOR2, Jade Empire and so on are all based on the success of KotOR1. Also, KotOR1 has the whole Revan twist which is worth a mention. I can't recall ever seeing a twist like that in a game before, although the concept is far from new - read quite a few books with it. Always loved twists like that.
But then again, BG2 only refined BG1, I see no reason why BG2 should be "revolutionary" while BG1 is not. Yes, BG2 is a better game, but that's because it's more of the same, not really anything new.
