Yeah, I agree. Things from Asia are inferior.
I played some goddamn JRPG that was so full of melamine that I fucking had to go punch a baby.
Back on topic, I haven't actually played any WRPGs... ever, so I can't comment. :P
I have recommendations. They're all for older games you probably can't readily buy though* :( And the only freeware Ultima is 4 which might be a little TOO archaic for someone new to WRPGs, and isn't nearly as plot-centered as 6 or 7.
Fallout 1's on GOG.com and it's cheap, though...
Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines is on steam. You might like that if you like FPSes. Deus Ex can probably also be found via D2D service.
* Ultima 6, Ultima 7, Planescape, Albion, Ultime Underworld...
