I almost laughed when my coworker first mentioned how he hated how often "Minsc got chunked", my friends and I used the same term. Apparently it's a very common problem with BG players.

I don't mind a character being less than optimal, but he's just so annoying. If he were a bit less mandatory, I wouldn't mind so much.
But, naturally, you have to start BG2 with the "good ally" characters that you hate. If I started with Coran, Yeslick, and/or Kivan, I'd be a happy gamer.
