    Neverwinter Night 1/2, those games are endless.

    Alternatively Fallout 2 or Arcanum.

    Neverwinter Nights 2 wasn't Bioware.

    Also, i'd recommend playing through NWN2 solely for the amazing expansion pack, Mask of the Betrayer.

    And look into Planescape: Torment.

    I'd recommend The Witcher 1 and/or 2, though it doesn't really fulfill your "expansiveness" demand in terms of the playable game world area.

    icewind dale is ok but i thought it was almost borderline hack-and-slash, and most quests were really dull and boring (too many obtain item quests). the hordes of enemies sort of took out the tension for me. depends what you like, though.

    id say baldurs gate (2) is one of the best rpgs ever, it's a lot slower than icewind dale but from a roleplaying perspective it's (imo) superior.

    these are all party-based D&D games though, and if that's not your cup of tea i suggest morrowind.

    Just saying, OP said he didn't want any recommendations for Elder Scrolls games.

    if you're interested in Baldur's gate, there's a remake coming out in September of both the first and second one, with extra quests and characters and all.
