Recommended turn-based RPGs on the Xbox?

Resonance of Fate.

The combat system is kind of turn based. Everything happens in real time, but you set up the actions in turns, then everything happens at the same time (kind of). Best battle system in an RPG on 360.

Not an RPG but XCOM.

Enchanted Arms is probably worth the 5 bucks. I've been playing it lately and it's alright. Average, I'd say.

Fallout 2 on pc is one of the best RPGs I've played. It's turn based as well.

Fallout 3 & vegas have a V.A.T system that pauses time & lets you allocate which enemy & what body part you would like to hit.
Mass Effect is similar in that you pause time to tell your squad what to do.

Eternal Sonata to some degree is turn based, Tales Of Vesperia let's you pause, but isn't turn based, Blue Dragon & Lost Odyssey turn based as well.

Also, like someone else has already said.. Xcom (not an RPG, far from it) but the best all around game this gen for me. Try demo for free.

Lost Odyssey is the best choice. I would skip Blue Dragon mainly because it's super boring.
