There isn't an objective answer to this question. You will either love the game or you will hate it.

A lot.
So many that there are some that you will never use.

Almost all the party NPCs are new characters.

Depends on whether or not you share Chris Avellone's views on video game romances. If yes, then yes there are some good options. If not, then you will probably be disappointed.

Not sure what you're asking. Nudity?

The "romance" dialogs are probably a little bit more grown up, but we're talking about themes, not graphics.

Too many to list here. Combat is still turn based. Upgrades are seriously overhauled. Equipment has new GUI options and AI.

The beginning of the game.

Same here. Peragus is my favorite part of TSL.

Yes. Betrayal is a major theme of the story (as seems to be the case for all of the games that Avellone works on).

I believe some mods like this exist, however I'm holding out for Team Gizka's Restoration Project (google it if you don't know what it is).

Then stop asking questions and start playing

You certainly don't need our permission to enjoy it or hate it.

P.S. FWIW, I played KotOR a lot also. After playing TSL I found KotOR to be unplayable. Your tastes may differ.
