Quantity is objective. Quality is not at all.

It's only your opinion, not a fact.

The fact is, that BG1 companions were in most cases only a portraits with attached set of sounds. Very little interactions, very little personal quests.

Obviously BG2 improved it a lot, but most of the companions didn't have any significant personal quests.

Yes, such was your "quality over quantity".
Another fact for you : it was in 1998.

BG2 companions in any modern games wouldn't be less interresting than those in BG3.
Significant side quest does not make the quality.

That's only a Larianism to ONLY have origin characters/story from the beginning to the end of the game.

They could easily add companions that have shorter but interresting and less WTF stories/quests.
