I play way too many RPGs to narrow it down to 1. I'd have to say the one that stands out most would be Thousand Arms. Not because it's my favorite but because I ended up liking it way more than I thought I would. It was a PS1 game that was part RPG part dating sim with neither part feeling tacked on, so to speak. All the elements were necessary for game play and blended well.
