That was one thing that really excited me about IWD. As much as I loved BG1, the NPC's are basically meat puppets (without the great party banter mod of course!). Being the sentimental guy I am, I actually recreated my same BG1 party for IWD, but made some tweaks (like making Imoen a half-elf so I could dual class her).

After playing BG2, where I felt the party members really do come alive (I know some people don't care for their banter, but it was one of the best parts of the game for me), going back to a party that had no banter seemed rather boring.

When I played IWD2 (which I realize isn't the best game), the story was so convoluted that I lost interest half way through as I had no idea why I was doing what I was supposed to be doing. I then went back later and played with the NPC mod and that really helped me to stay engaged to the game.
