As much as I love Gothic 3 (not going to comment Oblivion) I'd still say it would be wrong for it to win a title in a category it's not in at all. NWN2 is, however, the best cRPG I've played for years.
Imo what all this really means is that 2006 has been a poor year for cRPG lovers. NWN2 not as polished as we would have liked, Oblivion and G3 arguably not true RPGs and both not polished enough either.
(one of) My wish for 2007 : a better year for RPGs

PS: RPG hungry as I am I ended up reinstalling and playing again this year Fallout 1, Fallout 2, BG1, BG2, Planescape: Torment, Kotor 1 and Kotor 2 on top of NWN2 (haven't tried Oblivion or G3) and a few indie releases. I hope 2007 will add fresh new names to my "played this year" list.
