Well, starting with Ultima 2 on the C64 i played most roleplaying games available for computers, so i have a rough understanding of the genre.
Regarding a crossrelease i was talking about a Windows/OS X (Cider) DVD. Story wise DA borrowed a lot of its elements and scenes from Tolkien and others. The story in Kirkwall about the Qunari was great. I replayed DA2 several times whilst i had to force myself to finish DA already once. Micromanagement can be annoying if it isn't done well and occupies a to large percentage of the game. Chris Taylor and others already improved things a lot, i don't see a reason why things must be cumbersome again.
I rather play through well designed levels a couple of times instead of playing boring wide open spaces where nothing meaningful happens only once. Combat looked better in DA2 and it didn't take ages for members to get to certain positions. The tactical map was overrated and not well done in DA.
I think DA2 had several endings and the last ending wasn't as good as the ending before, which might be due to a lack of time but it nevertheless was more interesting than DA.
