Stories are not the main in a RPG, situations are.
Not this again. Story is essential to an rpg. Otherwise your just playing in a sandbox with your imagination. I play all my rpg's for story without it games lose my interest.

It doesn't need voice overs and cutscenes. Just a good plot and memorable npc's. Just like the Baldur's Gate series.
