You mean where combat is optional? There's few if any at all.

If story is all you're interested in then try the side-scroller games and point and click ones. The former lack all RPG elements while the later have some form of player control on the character or story (i.e The Walking Dead by Telltale games, To The Moon, Heavy Rain, Katawa Shoujo, Back To The Future The Game, Ace Attorney and Dear Esther. Upcoming include: Broken Sword: The Serpent's Curse, new King's Quest, Dreamfall Chapters: The Longest Journey and Everybody's Gone to Rapture). Although don't quote me on that. I haven't played half these games but I know most of them seem to have some form of player choice (dialogue system).

They do exist but they aren't categorized as RPG's which may explain why you can't find them OP (you're looking in the wrong places).
