But the rest? Derivative, clumsily paced, often clumsily written, sometimes to the point of being downright irritating.
In a way I agree with you. Harry Potter series started off really good but towards the end it kinda went down hill. I personally didnt like order of the pheonix. All harry does is getting pissed at everything for no apparent good reason. And I have to admitt, last one was bit of a let down as well.
Favourite RPGs: Baldur's Gate II, NWN: The Aielund Saga, Pathfinder: Kingmaker, Icewind Dale I, Stardew Valley
