If you're looking beyond PS3 games, Legend of Dragoon and Xenogears (both are PS1 games) are excellent RPGS in my book, both are long and tell great stories, and both even have great combat systems as far as RPG's go.

If a game is over 5 hours, it's too long... Do the math on your end to find which games are "long" and which games are "too" long. 95% of all games are too long... they go over 5 hours of play time and that's just too much.
