Stole the words from my mouth.

I love beating the game again AFTER the secret dungeons - "final" boss goes down in 10 seconds. x)

 I don't mind getting the chance to go around and see how everyone's doing after the worlds been saved and all.

 Not generally a fan of post game content though. So I beat the last boss and unlocked a bonus dungeon. What's my motivation to go dungeon crawling? Beat it and get the fiery ice sword of doom? What am I going to do with it? The last boss is dead already.

 This doesn't apply if the postgame content is actually story relevant and it feels like the game isn't really over. That's cool. If it's just 'Hey, new dungeon opened up' I have trouble caring. If it opened up BEFORE I beat the game I'd probably check it out. After I beat the game I'll probably pass unless I just really love the game.

I like being able to finish up side-quests that I didn't get to before I hit the game's end, or just wander the world doing whatever I feel like, since I already won and can't screw things up. :)

I don't have enough free time to care about post-game content.  I consider it an accomplishment if I even finish a game...

Star Ocean 2? Lots of variety, cool bosses and Santa Claus? Valkyrie Profile? Awesome music and murderous hamsters?

It's about challenge, not story.

Actually, all the Star Ocean games have a good amount of side quests and optional dungeons. SO1 had the least in the Star Ocean series from what I remember, but still meaty!

I prefer newgame+ since it gives me motivation to replay it, but I'd like to have that and post-game like Radiata Stories has.

Though it had other flaws, I thought Metroid: Other M did it SUPERBLY!
Code:
You had a final boss "sequence" (not one actual final boss, but a series of interesting puzzle battles),
 and then the story of the game was over. It ran credits and they had a reason for Samus returning to the space station before it was destroyed.
 By that point, there was no more planet-destroying threat, no more big catastrophe that awaited you, it was just your last chance to kick some
ass before the military came in and did it from space. You end up going through a few more areas, and suddenly you've got a REAL final boss, who
was actually really fun! Then you've got a self-destruct sequence (can't make a Metroid without one of those). But inbetween those, you're free
to go around and be an collector whore as much as possible.

Exactly. Post game content? Funny.

And Prime, I'm pretty sure you just completely spoiled someones Other M game. Good thing I finished it last week, or I would be pretty pissed at you right now.

Guess I should've paid more attention in here! Though, geez, the mere presence of that game in here's a spoiler.
