Thus my conclusion. If we're just looking at "getting similar game experience" as definition of "Spiritual successor", well, I had great multiplayer experience in BG, non would be in DA, so IMO, DA will never be a spiritual successor of BG to me.

Please explain.
Yes, both based on DND. No, pardon me for skipping details, I never imagine I can beat BG with my NWN-Barb-Hack-N-Slash playstyle.

Remember Jon irenicus? remember how you beat him?
/* spoiler */

Me and my friend see him weaving spell in his immune bubble,
my rogue friend think it might be a good idea to put some nasty traps under him since he's ignoring us.
what happen after the conversation is, well, he's dead by the traps as he lower his bubble, my party aren't even on the same screen when he dies.

This is what I call use your ability to beat a game.
It doesn't need to be open end/sand box/open world.

But it'll basically be the same, there isn't alternative way to finish the plot.
And there's still plenty of immunity gear to trivialize everything.

Relax… you don't have to argue with me, I'm a BG fanboy and my opinion is biased.
edit: and I'm really really disappointed when I play NWN.
