I say this having been bitchslapped not ten seconds ago by giant pink rabbits in Star Ocean: The Second Story (which is, quite possibly, the worst RPG I've ever played). Shin Megami Tensei, for example, manages to make even the smaller enemies creepy (Pretas) or disgusting (slimes, or oozes, look like slime and ooze).
Something that relieves me? When a sequel triumphs hugely over it's predecessor (like Star Ocean 3 as opposed to Star Ocean 2).
Pink rabbits, unstoppable enemies that kill you in four hits, hideous voice acting, horseshit battle system... this must be divine punishment for getting the true demon ending in Nocturne.
