I think coming up to around a third of the way at most. Haven't played through in ages but from what I remember my finish time was around 50-60 hours and that was missing most side quests. I think that can be cut down by quite a few hours though.

Yes typically they call that the 1/3 split after you finish Orton Cave your next destination. Although technically It should be just before that because they change the music. I mean if you followed Tales of Phantasia logic where Act 1 is the first overworld theme, Act 2 is the second, and the Final Act is the third. It would mean it happens at Yulia City first time.

Please be aware most side quests can't be started until the last 1/3. However if you weren't back tracking every event you missed allot of extras. They were however mostly small events rather than the true sidequests. But that what New game + feature were for. It's not like you can do everything on a first run.
