Um... show representative screenshots of D:OS 2 and BG3 to any of your non-gaming friends, and see if they fail to identify the differences in graphics and dialogue system.

At least a couple people have already bought D:OS 1 and 2 after seeing the presentation for BG3, entirely aware that the games are different. Using similar UI design elements would not trick anyone into buying BG3 for more of D:OS 2, and even if it could work it would be counter productive.

There were lots of differences shown during the presentation, and more will become apparent leading up to Early Access and release.
