With the widescreen patch the interface fits perfectly, there is no letterboxing or wasted space, and you can also change the resolution as well. So no, nothing flawed about the logic. Unless it includes some pretty massive overhauls, engine or graphics updates, or gameplay changes, this wasn't necessary.

So its confirmed, you don't know what you're talking about. Perhaps if your going to comment on something you should actually look into it.

Even IF this was a straight rerelease with just widescreen support, I think it's fair to say that the enhanced edition wasn't released for those hardcore gamers who played BG 15 years ago and are willing to take steps to 'modernize' the game in some ways on their own, or too add additional content.

Just like Nintendo releasing their old games, they recognize that there are plenty of ways to enjoy their games, even for free, but that isn't going to stop them from trying to introduce the games to a new audience, and there are of course the customers who don't want to go through the hassle of manually modding games.
