Disco Elysium becomes unresponsive during gameplay

As mentioned in the title, Disco Elysium, in particular, constantly becomes unresponsive during gameplay. Restarting streaming fixes the issue, however, this is not always possible. Sometimes pressing the button for restart does nothing. Then I need to hit Win+Alt+Q to force quit streaming, kill all Shadow tasks in Task Manager and start streaming again. This can get quite tedious when the game freezes in a minute or two after going through the aforementioned ordeal. I haven’t had this issue in any other game I’ve played. Additionally, I’m playing the game via Steam.
