[quote=Delicieuxz]while not delivering on what it represents
You mean not making some of the design decisions that you want.
That's simply not true. Noone can say that there was ANYTHING that reminded them on baldurs gate. Iam open for new ways, and a modern interpretation. But you should still be able to recognize where this game comes from. Show it to someone without the title, never ever would anyone say "oh that reminds me on BG", never ever.
