I won`t argue about the humour because it`s a relative thing. Let me just say Japanese are pretty good at taking the piss out of their games themselves. Why not have a laugh at orcs/cellar rats/fireballs and assorted other western cliches?

But I do love my sRpgs and to say it`s "high in the ranks" with the ones you mention is rather far fetched. Ok, I`ve not played the game but read enough opinions on it and even the positive reviews do not point to deep tactical gameplay as this title`s asset. And that`s putting it mildly.
