    ok, so i am looking for a SRPG that has a free roaming gameworld that i am free to explore at my leisure. kinda like being inside the castle in Disgaea, but a proper world, not just one room..i kinda liked the style of FFTA2, but i dont like that i cant walk round inside the taverns, shops, talking to random NPCs n stuff. i guess i dont mind if i dont have a 100% explorable world, but i want more than just chess-like battles strung together with dialogue

    I don't think there is an SRPG of that style, becuause the SRPG are centered in the Battles, meanwhile traditional RPG are the ones about talking etc...

    Yes, JenesisDS plays SF 1 and 2 great! Or you could try the GBA remake of SF1 as well which I loved.

    Shining Force was my first thought, too.

    The original PSX Rhapsody (but not its DS remake, sadly) had tactical battles but more traditional RPG-style free-roaming outside of them.

    Many computer games use this formula to an extent. The old SSI gold box games, say, although those might be a bit dated. If you haven't played Dark Sun: Wake of the Ravager you could try that, too. Most Ultima titles, too, aside from Ultima 9.

    Oh, Bahamut Lagoon for the SNES might also suit your tastes.

    I also strongly recommend Just Breed for the NES (google for a translation patch.) It's very good and humorous, as well as quite long. I think you should be able to emulate it on the DS...
