Still enough RPG to satisfy my escapist urges
The Pantheon Cycle is perhaps a bit less polished and well-designed, particularly lacking in the available options and possible strategies in battle, but offers enough story, playtime and RPG elements to still be an interesting gaming experience, at least during the short time I spent with the game.
(I suppose Dungeon Crawlers, Saturday Morning RPG and Battleloot all qualify for the turn-based RPG moniker as well, and possibly even Adventure Bar Story, but I found all four thoroughly disappointing in almost every way imaginable.)
But yeah, to reiterate upon Muz333's point: Final Fantasy Tactics, above all, even though the game is as much a turn-based strategy title as an RPG.
Ravenmark doesn't feature any actual RPG elements, but is one of the best and most polished games for iOS, and one of the most sophisticated TBS games for any platform, and thus very well worth your time and money, unless you detest the genre.
