@feenwager So… a party-based RPG… that isn’t J…
Best I can give you is Final Fantasy XII which is the least “J” of all party-based JRPGs released in the last decade. It plays very much like an Infinity Engine game, so much so that some of its UI elements found their way into Dragon Age.
But come to think of it, I would at least think some indie team would be trying to make an homage to Baldur’s Gate and the other Infinity Engine games.
If I ever run into this problem, I do have practically all the Infinity Engine games laying unplayed on my hard drive as well as the desire to start two or three new characters in Dragon Age.
