Backgrounds look great in BG2, I have never denied that. However I am controlling characters not the background, I happen to prefer beautiful characters and less beautiful backgrounds in terms of immersion. I've enjoyed looking at the backgrounds in BG2. I believe planescape torment used the same engine, and the character graphics there are really good, it cannot even be compared to BG2 because of such a superior quality, too bad they didn't make a BG game with that quality of characters.

Also I don't cliam phantasy star to be better games than BG I merely placed a screenshot to make a point about the character art.
