Nope, surprisingly more Dragon games than that.
For the last hint, I will quote someone without quoting them.
38 This RPG features an exiled princess, a thief, a relentless captain, 2 mages and an old king.
This game also features quite the eccentric entertainer. The protagonist can interact with all these characters and their backstories in unique ways.
"For me, it was ___________. That game is so charming and lovely. It may not be an exclusive but the _____ has beautiful orchestrated music instead of midi tunes, and that alone makes a huge difference. The characters have so much personality, the story is very good and the battle system is addictive. This game is like a time capsule for me, it took me right back into the 90s."
