Partybased: Turnbased or at least with an option to pause(NWN2, BG etc). Makes it more tactical and easier to control the various members.
Single character: Real time, fast combat where you need to do more than just hack'n slash.
I agree with this, single character and turn-based combat…. it appears kind of pointless!. One of my favourite games Ogre Tactics has amazing TB combat… I can replay the same battle over and over and over again!

However ToE and ToP proves that it is possible to have great action based combat with a party too. Fallout works rather well with single player TB combat… hmmm. The conclusion would be TB is great when done right, and action based battle can be great when done right too! in DS I think the party based combat in real-time works rather well.
