** As foolish and naive as Skie is, the girl ends up suffering so much that your pity for her will go beyond contempt, and you'll probably end up feeling genuinely sorry for her.

** As foolish and naive as Skie is, the girl ends up suffering so much that your pity for her will go beyond contempt, and you'll probably end up feeling genuinely sorry for her. Oh wait, she seems to develop for better in ''Siege of Dragonspear''! [[spoiler:Then she's unceremoniously killed. Ouch.]]

** MinMaxing your character stats, in both games. Some game guides even deem it [[NintendoHard outright necessary]]. This is, because having high character stats grants nice bonuses, while the penalties bestowed by low stats are considered trivial or even non-existent, as those are not very important, if you're traveling with a full party. While in theory having a [[DumpStat Charisma]] score of 3 means that you are about as appealing as a Zombie, in practice most quests can still be completed, most people still talked to, and your party can still be filled with companions, and, in the few cases when the engine measures your Charisma stat, you can simply switch your party leader for a more charismatic person (in particular, the first person to join your party in both games, Imoen, has very good Charisma). It's even more popular in the second, because your second dungeon gives you a magic ring that immediately sets your Charisma to 18.

** The questline involving Rejiek the murderous skinner is wrapped up [[GuideDangIt after extensive sidequest completion]] [[spoiler:with him skinning people in order to turn them into "skinless dancers"]], which is well and good, but the people who enabled and hired him are never confronted. In this case, they actually had a plan to avoid this trope: a hidden cabal of evil mages would be revealed as the masterminds of this and several other small questlines, but that portion of the game was left unfinished. The Unfinished Business mod restores it.

** On the male side, Dorn has a gruff, tusked appeal for fans of half-orcs.

to:

** On He might be the male side, most evil of all the evil choices, but Dorn has a gruff, tusked appeal for fans pretty sturdy female fanbase considering that he's not even ''human.'' Apart from the tusks and dark skin, he seems to get most of half-orcs.his looks from his human side, and having 19 strength just ''screams'' that there's a whole lot of muscle under the full plate he can wear.

* UnpopularPopularCharacter[=/=]UnintentionallySympathetic: Edwin is an arrogant {{Jerkass}} who [[KickTheDog insults]] and [[InsufferableGenius belittles]] your party at every opportunity, and the comeuppance he gets for it (including his final fate), are meant to be richly deserved LaserGuidedKarma. Yet many people find him likable or even relatable because the people he accuses of being stupid often [[StrawmanHasAPoint really are stupid]], his schemes backfire in a way embarrassing enough to make him come across as an IneffectualSympatheticVillain, and [[SmugSuper his magic potential really is as great as he claims]]. For some {{Fangirl}}s this wasn't enough, for whom he falls headfirst into TroubledButCute territory.
