I hear Devil Survivor Overclocked plays like an SRPG, and it's compared to Fire Emblem Awakening a lot. That may interest you.
Tales of the Abyss is definitely a game you should get. I haven't played Symphonia, but the two are regarded as similar when it comes to gameplay, so you'll most likely enjoy it. --- RIJ - Atlus - 9/17/13
I've only played Etrian Odyssey 4 and Etrian Odyssey Untold, so I can't speak to the earlier games in the series. But both of those are very good (as long as you don't mind high difficulty and drawing your own map) and they both have demos on the Eshop, which are 100% transferable to the full game.
So give the demos a shot and see what you think of them. --- The above post was typed in front of a live studio audience. Pokemon X FC: 0834 - 0952 - 9184 Friend Safari = Magmar, Charmeleon, Braixen
