Yes, that's the bad thing, imho : RPgs have always been about combat, instead of about story … What, if it had been vice versa ? This kind of game just doesn't exist : You don't get experience points for solving riddles, for example …

There was an Shannara game, this comes as close as possible to this vision.
It's rather Adventure than RPG, though.

As a biased fan I say : You could try out Drakensang 2.
Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
