Listen, both Raven and the Kotor2 mc were good at one point in the story. Raven does fall to the Dark Side, but his intentions to fight the mandalorians were good and he's revered as a hero for them. The Kotor 2 mc was also a hero, but the dipshit council of jedi decided to cut her off from the force creating a vacuum of nothingness which attracted the Sith including an ancient one.but yeah Kotor didnt age well. Story wise they are great, but gameplay becomes tedious awfully quickly.

Ugh the last part of 2 is such a letdown. Like I figured out pretty quickly that after a certain point I could just spam Force Wave or lightning or whatever and chew through everything, and with so much of it being unfinished it's hard not to slip into autopilot. Which is a shame because the first half or so, Peragus aside, is still one of my favorite gaming experiences ever.

Interestingly BG1 doesn't because the challenge is defeating low level D&D jank while in 2 it's about abusing high level D&D jank, though you couldn't just spam spells because enemy wizards, dragons etc had to have their defenses lowered somewhat (as they had magic resistance or shield spells on contingency), which added at least some depth to it (though basically you wanted to have a full mage plus maybe a second at least half mage for additional breach and pierce magic). Anyway KOTOR abandoned D&D 2nd edition and instead moved to D&D 3rd which was less janky but just as unbalanced when it comes to high level magic.

It's also why a lot of WRPGs that use their own, or heavily modify existing systems so that they're actually designed for computer rather than tabletop play (which benefits from different mechanics). POE or fallout (though this uses a GURPS based system) worked better. Planescape combat wasn't the heart of the game and became another puzzle when it was unavoidable (almost never) and you could corpse rush most fights anyway.

I think part of the problem is that the combat systems weren't designed with such high level play in mind. Which means that for the sequels they upped the numbers and added some skills which made the whole thing convoluted and unbalanced (thematically those prestige classes in kotor2 were really cool though).
Kinda how in some Final Fantasy games or other JRPG's where you deal thousands of damage, incremental increases through buffs and skills quickly become meaningless. Like sure you can employ certain tactics to deal 6309 damage, or forgo all that hassle and keep hitting the guy for 5962 damage.
