Never played BG2, but BG1 had tons of meaningless, horribly written dialogue that led to the same result (you being attacked). There were a few notable exceptions, but overall I found the dialogue section of the game to be one of it's weakest points. Just remembering that conversation with Angelo, where the only upstanding option was to call him smelly makes my head hurt. And you could say that that was because MC is just a kid, but considering all he's been through, he should be a shellshocked veteran with a thousand yard stare, not a child with a penchant for petty insults.

I hope to see as little BG1 in BG3 as possible. Barely got through that game, would not like to have the same experience with this one.
