For me it is not a waste of time... IF I enjoy a game (like D II or DD) I can play it for months!
And I know the ending (and I was disappointed on that moment) of D II, but I play it all over again!!
I give it more time, more chances! And be honest, I love the "female hero" much more!
Her moves are nicer and more fun to look at! Hmmmm ...
But the most important thing is: I enjoy to play it And I take Divinity II - Ego Draconis like it IS!
