Lost Odyssey was so close to being an all-time great. The Thousand Years of Dreams stuff was brilliant, and the characters and story were pretty great. Something was still off about it, though - it's like the final product was less than the sum of its great parts, if that makes sense. Maybe the turn-based combat didn't gel with the rest? I don't know.
It's still one of the best games I've played this generation, though.
I still have my sealed copy of Xenoblade Chronicles waiting to be played. I wish it hadn't come out on the Wii... I hate the damn controls. Maybe it would be better on the Wii U?
