Baldur's Gate II?  :p

Planescape Torment. I hear The Witcher was excellent.

Icewind Dale I&II, Temple of Elemental Evil.

Provided you don't mind dungeon crawls, anyway.
I will ask that you explain yourself. Please do so with the clear understanding that I may decide I am angry enough to destroy all of you and raze this sickening mausoleum of fraud down to the naked rock it stands on.

Summoner is quite good as well.

I second Icewind Dale II, if only because of the books in the same setting.

How much dungeon crawling we're talking here? Like 99% of the game is a freaking dugeon?

40-60%, by time.  The plotline is actually coherent, and interesting, as well as the backstory of the Ten Towns and the denizens of the surrounding countryside.

By area, it's more bordering on 80-90% dungeon crawling.

Seconding Summoner. It's not the best, but it's good, and it's by our beloved [V]. :D

What are you looking for exactly? Mount&Blade is quite a bit of fun combat-wise (can be really repetitive, AI is predictable but also rather deadly). I've won battles nearly single-handedly by having my forces line up in formation while I go after two dozen cavalry with a Greatsword or a lance of some sort (my favorites are the military scythe and the ashwood pike, actually). The combat's more based around skill and not getting caught vulnerable. Then again, castle sieges are a little bit unfair. Defending is either really easy or really hard. I've had good "luck" defending as I tend to do a little exploit that the AI simply won't, which is to force ALL my troops outside of the castle. For some reason, that gives me a huge advantage and they typically get run over.

I tried Titan Quest, wasn't too bad, but too much doubling back in order to get supplies etc, sometimes you could spend hours wandering back and forth in the same area.

not in any way medievil but fantastic is bloodlines

 
I'm going to go out on a limb here and say Oblivion.  You can get it pretty cheaply now, if you can find it.

Dragon Age will probably have tons of intrusive DRM on it.  I'm not holding my breath.

Hi Everyone,

I have some good news to pass on to you today that answers one of the most frequently asked Dragon Age: Origins PC questions.

We’re happy to announce that the boxed/retail PC version of Dragon Age: Origins will use only a basic disk check and it will not require online authentication. In other words, the retail PC version of the game won’t require you to go online to authenticate the game for offline play. We have chosen not to use SecuROM in any version of Dragon Age that is distributed by EA or BioWare.

Some other cool stuff that we hope you’ll like - we have already launched the Dragon Age toolset beta, which offers developer-grade tools, and we’re looking forward to what fans will create with it. We’ll also be supporting the game with a ton of great downloadable content that will be available for purchase after the game’s release. Together these features will provide some very cool reasons to go online with Dragon Age: Origins.

We’re really excited as we head towards the release of Dragon Age: Origins this fall on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC, so keep an eye out for more news as we’ll be providing you with more details shortly.

Stay tuned for more coolness to come…

Okay, I stand corrected.  Dragon Age will most likely be totally awesome, especially if those promised developer tools get released to modders.  I might actually grab it.

I was really excited for Dragon Age, but all the hands-on reports so far, as well as the trailers they've shown, aren't looking too good.  :(

Heard the Witcher was like an MMORPG with all the good parts gutted.
Sig nuked! New one coming soon!
