    It's not actually recent but Knights of the Chalice actually fits the bill.
    There is some mazes but they're not hard to navigate, and you can walk through cleared areas fast enough, you can even disable random encounters to make it even easier (monsters respawning and random encounters on the world map)

    Vigilantes, it's not exactly a RPG, more like a Tactical-RPG with some base management, short missions, perfect for a one hour window and easy to remember what's going on as there is some notes on the city map and a panel with all the infos you gathered so far on the criminal organizations.

    KOTC isn't ultra long either. Probably about 20-25 hours depending on how you get through encounters.

    How do you feel about roguelikes? I think they're perfect for 1 hour in the morning style of gaming. You could launch the game, move 1 square and then have a cup of coffee if you like it slow and methodical. Games like Jupiter Hell and Brogue are very accessible if you want to give them a go

    A one hour window in the morning is perfect indeed for PFK, you can prepare your breakfast during your first loading screen, come back and play for 5 minutes, eat your breakfast during your second loading screen, play for 2 minutes, get a shower during your third loading screen, play for 1 minute and then turn off your computer and head to work.

    It should be used to sever otaku's gaming dependence.
    It was probably designed for that sole purpose.

    Urtuk : The Desolation might work if you have limited play time.
    It's pretty much all combat all the time without any storyfaggotry what-so-ever.

    Dawn of War 1 and 2. They're both RPGs and some of the best ever made.

    Hey. :) I can thoroughly recommend Bard's Tale IV: Director's Cut if u want to play a really good dungeon-crawling CRPG. The use of the save points mean that each one is about 15-30 minutes apart or so. In other words, u can start up, fight a few battles for progress, and then save at the next save point and u can do all that in under an hour generally. Besides that, it's just an awesome CRPG! If u do play I hope u enjoy. :)

    Not all are full-blown storyfag RPGs, mind, but they're TB:
    - West of Loathing
    - Vigilantes
    - Sorcery!
    - Mainframe Defenders
    - Darkwind: War on Wheels

    I played LoX, it was awesome and exactly what I'm looking for.
    Legends of Eisenwald was similar but boring.

    Thanks, Fluent. I totally forgot about this game. Might give it a try.

    Don't else me, i didn't recommend PK but Knights of the Chalice.

    Also, Dark Sun is a good choice.

    Just write some notes about important things if you're still playing in short sessions.

    Vigilantes as well, not much story, nothing to remember, just combat and base/fighters management.

    Thanks, Vigilantes also look interesting.
    Dark Sun and KoC are too fucking ugly for me. Anything worse looking than Fallout 1 or Diablo 1 I don't wanna bother with..
