It really is not just about the combat, which is - I believe - what vometia meant.
As described in the BG manual, page 40:

Yeah, that's what I was getting at. Sometimes I want a good scrap, other times I want the diplomatic or stealth option; sometimes I don't want any specific questing but to explore, meet people, enjoy the dialogue and lore. I was beginning to worry that all those things were just window-dressing in BG.
