You certainly can, although some would say that it was just a natural progression of Dune.

Then you shoot guys in the nads. The first one was the best one.

The second one was an attempted series killer and then it became every other war FPS.

I'm pretty down on RPGs in general, especially JRPGs, but this begs the question: what, pray tell, are your standards?!

Let's see...

I thought Dwarf Fortress was a great game, the First Resident Evil and Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War were also great.
Metroid Prime 3 was great, although the other two were not. They were good, just not great. Diver Down was great, for all of it's faults.

That's all well and good, but I was more asking why Crono Trigger came up short with you, as opposed to why other games are great.

Side note: I beta tested WH40k:DoW, and played ~2500 matches online but eventually rage quit when they decided to let PSM spam stay broken for close to a year.

I don't know if you ever played online, but for a while there was a bug that would sometimes cause players to crash on startup, resulting in one team starting shorthanded. I had a partner (that I still talk to now and again) with whom I could beat opposing teams 2v3 about 80% of the time, as long as our third partner dropped on startup. If he dropped in the middle of a battle or something we were still pretty much screwed, but as long as we started out 2v3 (on Kaysr Lutien, at least, which was pretty much the only 6v6 map people played) we could usually still win. It was pretty absurd.

I testify Melkor rocked at that game. Played it alongside him. He could tie two players all by himself while his mates wiped all the bases. Quite a micro, I would add.
