Nimoy was really happy with Alley and she loved being in STII.
But... Shatner was not. In my interview with Paul Winfield, conducted before ST II had been released - and long before anyone knew about the ABC TV version (with that alternate Kirk/Saavik flirtation scene) - I can tell you that he said, of Shatner and Alley: (paraphrasing) "I can tell you that their off-screen relationship was quite the opposite of what you see on screen."

But was the merely Shatner's ego getting in the way or was there something more.

After all Shatner's relationship with most of his regular cast mates off screen is well known to be the opposite to the on-screen.
