By in large, that list was top notch, and touched on one of the biggest concerns of RPG narrative: realistic, 3-dimensional characters. Yeah, Lighting not being there feels like an elephant in the room, but asside from that, I'd give a pass to every one they put up there.
As for the Tales series, actually, I would say that Judith is possibly the most elegible for that slot, a surprisingly well-constructed character in a game with quite a few terrible ones. To me, Judith really embodied a woman who knew she was very sexually attractive, was comfortable with that, but didn't let it rule her personality and judgement. I can't really think of a better example of that. Most of the time, if bombshell woman are portrayed as being intelligent and strong, their personality leaves their sexuality at the door. Nothing wrong with that either, many times it's best to stear clear of sexuality if it's not relivant, but it's nice to see that explored a bit. The flipside, of course, is the sexually obsessed female who flaunts their body any chance they can get, which is obnoxious and cheapen's the character, IMO.
BTW: Is it wrong that the first thing I thought when I saw Kiane on the list was, "wait... does she really count?" (of course she does, but ya know...)
