Even though I'm determined to complete it, I can't say I'm enjoying it that much.

I had hoped that this sequel might improve on what they started, but to me it sounds like a further degeneration from Baldur's Gate. Dragon Age is a dumbed down console game in comparison, but still ok. This though.. sounds like it has gone the whole hog. They are no longer making classic RPG's, they are now just making crappy "hack 'n slash" games with a few stats and skill choices. Stick it in a generic good vs evil setting and have a few dialogue choices so it can pose as RPG and pretend to be something superior to what it really is. What it really is, is a glorified hack 'n slash.
Just yet another casualty of consolised games, dumbed down for the dumb modern gamer. System Shock becomes Bioshock, Elder scrolls has become Oblivion, Everquest becomes WoW, Rainbow Six has become... a distant memory. It's a different age of gaming now. Sad but true.
