    Mass Effect? By the 3rd game to gunplay was decent.

    You probably mean brown people though.

    The correct answer is Alien Shooter 2.

    Damn, I was gonna suggest that too. The RPG-lite elements definitely play an important role towards surviving the later stages.

    Funnily enough, the remastered version streamlined a lot of the stats. If you can find the non-remastered version, play that one instead. It's superior in nearly every way.

    Yeah, I was just going to mention X-com. It's not technically an RPG, but it counts if you squint. Warhammer Mechanicus is in the same boat.

    Sure the combat is arcade style, but you've got Party Members (Ships), a main character (Main Ship), build him the way you like (Modules), explore a sandbox, discover the story, gather resources, AND KILL XENOS WHO KILL XENOS WHO WANT TO KILL ALL XENOS.

    Also, cool music.

    Nothing like shooting snakemen with a laser rifle and hearing the lamentations of their snakewomen.

    For 10€, it's a steal, but my boxed version is still intact.
