However, I'm not very hardcore with my RPG's as some of the people on this forum are, and I'm not big on spending countless hours on figuring out the best party configuration and stat min/maxing.

So your concluding comments hit it right on for me. Those are the elements that wowed me and gave me lasting memories that make me want to come back to the game.
To be honest, I'm kinda considering playing it again on the PC. That should reveal that, despite my criticisms - the game has something going for it.

However, it would have had a lot more pull for me if they'd made a more interesting character system and done a bit for the loot aspect. I could definitely see myself playing it again with much the same enthusiasm as the first time.

I suspect that if I do play it on the PC, i'll probably stop before it's over. I've never been into replays very much - I'd just like to play it without being annoyed with the interface.
