If Legend of Grimrock is not a RPG for those reasons, then neither is Wizardry, Might and Magic, Bards Tale, many of the Ultima games, Dungeon Master, Eye of the Beholder, or any of the Gold Box Series of D&D games.

Any definition of a RPG that excludes all of the classic RPGS that defined the genre is, in my opnion, an extremely bad definition.

Therefore the player cannot add influence to the direction of the dialogue path relating to the outcome that leads to the conclusion via the choices….so there is no role to play.

You cannot play a role without dialogue.
