It will take 20 minutes to get used to it, and then it ends up being a very usable (if unconventional) UI.

Just out of interest, Gothic 2 is essentially Gothic 1 with a few tweaks. Gothic 1 was originally conceived as a console game - hence, designed for a gamepad, hence no mouse. When the console thing never happened and development proceeded, they decided full mouse support wasn't a priority. This was a poor decision but it does work pretty well when you get used to it.
