Legend of Dragoon was the first RPG I ever returned after playing. I couldn't get myself through the first disc due to getting bored with it. Bought it again years later and got through the entire game and I can't say that I'm too big a fan of it. The novelty of the battle system got old pretty quickly and the bad localization made it really hard to get invested in the characters. Some of the translations were laughably bad (i.e. Boss character after being defeated: "I was proud to receive your fist, master!" Haschel: Quiet! Talking makes you die!") XD
Turning into dragoons is usually pointless as well. I think all the love for the game these days comes from the rose-tinted glasses. I was pretty surprised at all the excitement for its release on PSN. Although it wasn't all bad. Best part of TLOD for me were the graphics for water, which were pretty awesomely done.
