The thing about the RPG genre is that it contains many different key components, which are sometimes mutually exclusive (for example RT vs. TB). The best games always focused on a few key points, implemented them masterfully, and completely neglected others on the way. For that reason every great RPG (many have been mentioned in this thread) has both supporters of its strengths and critics of its inevitable weaknesses.

The bottom line is:
You won't like everything recommended here. Make your choices, but don't hesitate to move on after a couple of hours if it simply doesn't click for you. Playing all the classics is practically impossible. The Ultima series since part 4 alone would take you 500+ hours, not counting replays and restarts.
