Why so much hate for mutual exclusiveness?

    Mutual exclusiveness adds some "real choice" into the game, as opposed to "just maxing out", which gets boring quite fast. With "maxing out", there is no real choice: you can either do it right, or do it wrong, but honestly that's not a meaningful choice.

    Rolling a character is horrible, but you can reassign the points, so you just hit the "reroll" button until the sum is good (that takes just a minute) and then you redistribute the points as you see fit (which is a bit silly -- and that's the consequence of using a bit silly rule system).

    Otherwise, I find the BG quite MM-like in nature: you have a lot of connected maps and you can go pretty much wherever, so I wouldn't say it's not open. (And, by the way, the combat in BG is far better than the one in MM, though it has problems of its own.)
