Complexity is one thing, but Xenogears and Saga just suffer far too much from story padding for it's actual Plot to be believable. Religious overtones are cool but only when done right. Just don't feel that they were in that series. And in full disclosure......Xenosaga's story was much better than gears.
Do you think that Saga handled religious overtones better than Gears? I thought it turned out a good bit more nonsensical (probably when it brought real-world religion into the mix, as opposed to perfectly fine symbolism).
