Why would he be pissed just bcsauee it's a Baldur's Gate ripoff? If the game is good i don't care if it rips off every western rpg out there. It's LoTR, it's really hard to make something with that setting that is completely new and fresh. Baldur's Gate has a working format if they make a good game that is similar to it then what the hell is the problem? It's not like there's too many of them in new gen gaming.
