Unfortunately, I didn't feel like that about NWN2 at all. Wanted to, but didn't.
I actually felt the same way. So much so that I still haven't purchased MotB.

Judging it by mere association with NWN2 (even if it is an expansion) isn't exactly doing it justice.

I'll just say that you're missing out if you don't give it a shot rather rely too heavily on logical argument.
The base game left me disappointed, along with CS from Atari. I ditched the franchise and never looked back, and won't. I'm not going to harp on it though, as I did say I would leave it alone. I have, too. Although, I will say the NWN2 toolset was easier to use than the DA one is. I still haven't really gotten into it, yet.
