Dragon Age has given me hope for the genre. It's the first decent new old-style RPG I've played in quite some time (I don't think Mask of the Betrayer quite counts, being an expansion instead of a standalone.) Yay for Bioware! Fallout 3 and Oblivion were travesties in the worst possible way, and most RPGs have nothing but a big fucking plot they want you to follow and you cannot change where things end. That really, really shits me.
