Best rpgs with playable parties

I'm looking for games like Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and Xenoblade Chronicles on the Wii. With lots of playable party members instead of just one.

The PS1 JRPG Chrono Cross had about 50 playable characters and was a good game, a little confusing though. To make it better each character is different with Techs (depending who you have in you team even Double and Triple Techs) and weapons.
For the 360 there's Lost Odyssey has multiple playable characters and you can have five in your party at once. I'm not too far in it yet to really comment though.

If we're going back to previous gens, one of the primary features of the Suikoden series are the 108 Stars of Destiny, most of which are playable characters.

Tales of Symphonia for GC

Great cast of 8 or 9 playable characters. Fights occur when you run into a monster on the map which activates a domed battle field where you take on the monster/enemies. Good mixture of both physical attack and magical users plus it allows you to couch co-op battles with friends/family. Storyline is captivating and overall the game is fun to playthrough a few times. Watch some gameplay vids to see if you like the graphic style.

There is a sequel to the game on the Wii but its not as good as the first Symphonia game. It takes away a lot of the playable characters that made Symphonia 1 great.

On the 360 there is a Tales of Vesperia game that also has several playable characters, but I have not played it so I can't comment on that game

Magna Carta 2

At one point, I never played with the main character in the party cause the other playable characters were so much more fun to use. The combat system actually encourages you to constantly switch players.

Star Ocean 4, a bit cliche, but 7 characters that play fairly differently. The combat is a step up from the Tales series imo.
