    How about this:

    A small golden plaque turns out to be way more powerful than 99% of weapons in the game.

    Ultima 7. Only way to kill Lord British... except maybe by cannon. Can't remember is that works or not. It's an in-company joke, since one of their plaques or signs did fall in real life and hit Richard Garriott, requiring him to go to the hospital for stitches. And yes, I'm such a nerd I didn't have to look this one up.

    Nice. I was thinking Dark Messiah of Might and Magic, but didn't think the last part fit.

    A Francojank action / adventure thingie with rpg elements, bonkers story and top notch atmosphere. Think of Knights of the Temple, but enjoyable. Failed rather miserably at sales, planned sequel never happened.

    As for the hints:

    First hint: Your father was a demon, you are a demon, your compadre is a demon, the big baddies are demons. And all because God willed so. - You, your father, your only companion and the important baddies are all cursed for doing committing some high lvl sacrilege in Jerusalem. You're basically turning into a hellspawn (think of Bound by Flame). God willed so - Deus Vult, crusades.

    Second hint: November has a special place in your heart. - Your only companion and trusty old friend is called Esteban Noviembre. Noviembre = November.

    Third hint: There is precisely one (read:token) Black person in the game, but he's the goodest of them all. You still got to beat him up like there's no tomorrow though. - The head of the Varangian Guards and local arena champion is a black man (strangely enough, with a Greek name, instead of Nubia/Ethiopian/Whatever), who also happens to be protected by the divine.

    but hats off to Gradenmayer , got it in one.

    Guilty as charged ))

    Anyways, here's another game for you folks to guess:

    Remove all combat and this would probably be Umberto Eco's favourite game ever, period.

    In a post-apocalyptic Earth, I have killed a Lesbian warrior to obtain thousands of New American Dollars, which I can exchange into real money at a bank on the top floor of the dungeon.

    The local big bad (of which there are many) has sent a small snake to tell me she's going to do horrible things to me when we meet.
