There might be a few games here and there that blur the line between western and Japanese RPGs. But for the most part JRPGS have the following characteristics:

Anime (I'm not a fan of anime, not that it is bad or anything, just not my taste)
Loads and LOADS of random unavoidable encounters
Primarily Sci-fi (not bad in and of itself, I'm just more a fantasy guy)
Are more of a movie production than a game
Cumbersome menus

I used to play a lot of JRPGs in the 8 bit and 16 bit eras. But I burnt out from them for the above reasons.
If I'm right but there is no wife around to acknowledge it, am I still right?
