The problem with the Sims or Final Fantasy is : in action, the mechanism and graphics make you lose contact : too far from reality, graphics not good enough for the characters (oh, for the surroundings : all right !)...
I would rather go for a more immediate (live it) system ( even Quake-like ! ) than a Warcraft or Sims or Final Fantasy action system
(in FF : never could stand the way the characters got selected - hop-jump I'm in action ! - or act...)

Once more, I advise you to have a look at ICO for the graphic presentation / action system : just imagine the same in forest and a group of Wolfriders (rather than in a castle and only one or two character)...

And with the 3D live/ZOOM-system : you may FEEL vertigo when climbing up a tree and looking down, you may get and feel lost when wandering too far from the group, with the star-sending system : you see and feel the other characters around, or may come back to them, and so on...
