I'm on the fence about this one, it just seems so linear.
Perhaps I will give it a go eventually.

It is about as far from linear as you can get. The environments are EXTREMELY intricate, with passages that run everywhere, and the story has multiple endings, too.

I suppose the 10min let's play vid I watched was misleading?
Fair enough I will give it a go.

But is that the only xbox rpg game u have enjoyed or did I pretty much cover the rest? :)

Basically this. You've got a pretty good list there, I just felt that Dark Souls should be at the top of it, not absent from it!
(the fact that you haven't played it is actually the only reason I'm accepting that it wasn't there ^_^)

*edit* which is not to suggest that there aren't other fantastic RPG's too..

Rise of the Argonauts
Nier
Mass Effect,

to name a couple.

I wish that Warriors Orochi 2 would count... it's a hack 'n slash with RPG elements, but what gets me is the nonsensical storyline. It's so much fun.

I liked Too Human because of the loot and some of the meta-game aspects, such as unlocking secret rooms if you are performing well on a level. I know that when I completed my no-deaths run of the Ice Forest (F*** you Dyack), there were a couple of really cool bonus areas with some good loot. Also have to point out that replayed maps are slightly different from their main mission counterparts. The biggest downside to the game is that the twin-stick control can be difficult to adjust to, but is fairly responsive once you know what to do.

I also liked Two Worlds, at least post-patches. The game was pretty hard to play when it came out, but after a few of the patches adjusted some performance issues, the game sucks slightly less, and becomes playable. Oh sure, you should still never ride a horse, and the magic system takes an eternity to truly max out, but the game's so awful that its story can seem like a joke, and then it makes the game enjoyable.

My biggest disappointment is probably Dragon Age: Origins. I didn't like the game at all. It felt like it was 12 years old, as though I'd played that exact same game just before Diablo II launched and I lost three years of my life. The plot wasn't even close to good, the characters were very generic, and it just took me forever to even care a little bit about what was going to happen in the game. It never really pulled me in and made me feel relevant to the game, like my choices would produce the same outcomes no matter what.
