Exactly, Dice. I really wanted to like that game, but there was no balance to anything. Without any sort of narrative thrust either, you're kind of left wandering around in the dark.

Some parts of the story were interesting, but yeah, it took me 5 years to finish the game because I would always lose interest.

I personally hate how "disjointed" the games feel, there's no real sense of flow to the titles besides "go here, pick up a friend, don't go there, you'll get your ass handed, then go here".  All too often I walk a screen or two of from where I need to be and so enemy kicks my ass dead.  The battle system feels pretty hack as well.  I did love SaFa Frontier 2, loved the old-world approach, and the "up-close" 2D battles (they looked amazing, even amidst an generally pretty looking title).
SaGa 1 on the other hand, took a whole bunch of cool ideas and lumped them in a garbage heap story.  Robots.  Vampires.  Prisoners.  Space travel.  Super armor.  Magical worlds.  And that's just talking about prologues.

I don't think the game as a whole worked. But several of the stories were pretty darned good (the robot one, for instance).

I liked Asellus story path but that was about it.

I liked Legend of Dragoon, but all I really remember is the combat system and art style sticking with me. It was far from perfect, but I think you guys could come up with something worse.

I think my biggest dissapointment was Alundra 2. I don't know what the hell happened, but somehow someone got permission to slap the Alundra name on a game that very clearly had nothing in common with the first game. The game itself didn't suck too much, but I can't tell you how pissed I was though. I felt like I had been tricked. I never really would have bought that game if I knew what it was.
Currently playing:
Xbox 360 - NIER
Wii - Metroid Prime 2: Echos (trilogy version)
PSP - Disgaea
DS - SMT: Devil Survivor

I don't think LoD is anywhere near the worst RPG of all time.  That seems like another one of those titles thrown into the thread simply to rile people up or because you didn't like it.

I'd also like to nominate some of the IF PSP ports, in particular Spectral Souls: Resurrection of the Ethereal Empires.  I'm one of those rare few who can get enjoyment out of IF/CH games, but this port is an abomination and while I'm tolerant, I found it to be relatively unplayable due to its technical issues. I was too afraid to try Blazing Souls after this release.

Yes, I didn't like it. In fact, I hated it. Probably the worst battle system in an RPG ever. That's why I put it in.
I avoid online multiplayer because my brain still works.

Someone on this board has a theory that US would have been better received if they had simply made a better manual for it, but I can't remember who.
