I usually love my turn based jrpgs too, thats the only way to control the whole squad. I wasn't feeling Ni-No Kuni battle, but it wasnt too bad. Kingdom Hearts A.I. either does random **** or wastes all their MP on regular heartless / nobodies.
Parasite Eve battle system was pretty nice, first one i played with a "free-roam" battle system. I dont wanna ask for another remake though.
