    I actually like the the idea of having a prequel where the main char is the mom of the BG1 char. along the way meet Gorion and maybe the final scenes could have something to with her dying in childbirth or something. I don't know, that is only one idea. Another might be to explore the BG1 Characters between BG1 and BG2. Just because BG2 says they were leaving Badur's Gate when they were jumped doesn't mean it was immediately after the first game. I don't know the designers have come up with some very good games, and although it isn't up to the same team of people, the new team is also very capable.

    Like some said, like me, dont't stare yourself blind on bhaal. Once Jaheira and the rest where new. Now we expect something from them, so many will be dissapointed when they act different.

    So start new. Do not forget, the main theme is Baldurs gate the city.

    It's a pity they couldn't just stop at BGII instead of making all that Dark Alliance crap; I swear a bit of me dies every time I say "PC games? Well, I've got Fallout, Baldur's Gate..." and they say "Baldur's Gate? I thought it was only on the PS2."
    Really.
    I can feel the brain cells boiling away.

    Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't Throne of Bhaal unveil the story of the mother? The priestess of Bhaal thingy?

    Uhm.....
    Dosen't the end of BG:DA 2 show that a third of that the DA series is coming?

    It would kinda damage their reputation if they didn't, since they have shown that a third enemy is coming, just like the end of BG:DA 1 :p

    Poor Beren, no one listens to him anymore :p (j/king).

    Off topic: DA was pretty good IMO, the game that got me buying BG 2, then DA 2.

    On/off topic: BG3 has the same fate as Fallout 3. Fallout 3 was started and then ended before production, never finished. Now Beth has picked it and will most likely finish the 's***ing-on-the-name' job that Fallout BOS for PS2 started, despite their 'we understand you' crap. Same fate will befall on BG3, they will take forever to make some horrid game which will elad to them selling the rights to some huge developer company that will make money off the name by introducing a bunch of huge f'ing lies about them 'understanding the BG community'. Our only hope is that Bioware or perhaps Obisidian pick up the rights somehow and don't mess it up.
