I never finished baldur's gate 2 but I have played D&D for pretty much a long long time. I can say this about dual-classing. Don't do it. In the original AD&D set rules dual classing cuts your XP in half and so it takes you much longer to level up. Second, you are still hit with the restrictions of the specific classes when dual classing, so if you make a fighter mage, he cannot wear plate armor and cast spells. He can't wear armor at all and cast spells. (This wasn't true in the early SSI AD&D games, but it is in the later Interplay AD&D Games) If you are going to dual class at all, I would suggest looking to a Mage/Thief classing, as this one is the least hindered by not being able to wear heavier armor. I don't know if you can in Baldur's Gate 2, but something that might be more interesting to do would be to dual class instead of multi class. So I have to ask because I hear it a lot, do you wish they had made a Baldur's Gate 3? Or are you in the same boat as me and think that Neverwinter Nights 1 (not the 2nd one, that was pure crap by Atari) was the true follow-up to Baldur's Gate? To talk about your other question about retro games posts about them, I don't know. I never thought about it. But now that you bring it up, I may have to do something like post a discussion about say the King's Quest Series.
