Neverwinter Nights 2

I've been playing Neverwinter Nights 2 for the last couple months. It seems like it's been forever. I'm not like those game reviewers who run through a game as fast as they can (and then accuse the game of having no depth or character development because they skipped through most of the side quests or dialogue), instead, I like to see as much of the game as possible. Unfortunately, this can be very time consuming for a game like Neverwinter Nights 2, which seems to be taking forever. For me, a lot of playing an RPG is building up your character and equipment (for in NWN2, you can actually craft weapons and armor) and trying them out in combat. The problem is, Neverwinter Nights has a lot of stuff going on - the mystery that your character is involved in, preparing for a war, building a stronghold, learning more about your sidekicks, and dungeon crawling all in the same game. The game play is really nice and the mechanics are sound, but I wouldn't mind getting done with the game and moving onto Jade Empire - a game I've waited for two years to come out on PC and one that I bought immediately upon it's release but haven't had a chance to play yet.
