What are some RPGs that get overlooked but worth looking into?

Hi! The title speaks for itself. Suggest me RPGs that either get overlooked or don't have the attention they deserve. I would like you to exclude MMOs, though. Other types of RPGs are welcome. Older ones can be suggested too. I am aware of these few so you don't need to recommend these: Anachronox, Arcanum, Planescape: Torment, The Temple of Elemental Evil, Ultima Underworld 1 and 2, Arx Fatalis, Baldur's Gate 1,2 , Icewind Dale 1,2 , Nox, Gothic 1,2,3 (maybe 4). Also, the popular series like Wizardry, Might and Magic, Elder Scrolls and Fallout need not be mentioned.

Half-Minute Hero and its sequel Half-Minute Hero: The Second Coming. They look silly and are indeed parodies, but have amazing soundtracks and a surprisingly lovable and memorable cast of characters that span many generations. Sadly the 8bit/16bit graphics make them often get confused with budget RPG Maker games, but they're nothing like that at all and are very intense action-RPGs where you'll learn to make milliseconds count.

It's like Baldurs Gate.
