Yeh, I still play that game, it's awesome, found it hard to get into any of the newer RPGs, they just don't match up for my taste. Paladin yes is awesome, especially the holy energy they can transmit to the undead, meheehhe =)
Nope I didn't, I've heard of them though. I had Baldurs Gate on disc but no drive now in my laptops anymore so can't play it. I think it includes the whole series of BG. There is a remastered version of BG on Steam.
I've been playing the remastered Neverwinter Nights Enhanced Edition, from Steam, which is awesome. =)
