No, I have not, but I'm not much into turn-based RPGs in general. The only ones I have enjoyed, are Paper Mario, Paper Mario The Thousand Year Door, Costume Quest and Mother 3 (fan translation). The two Paper Mario games are two of my favorite games of all time. They all have an action element to their turn based battles, they all have a whimsical style and they absolutely do not take themselves seriously. Not even remotely. So, yes, it is a matter of taste. Chaos Rings II is sort of intriguing, but it's just a curiosity thing, certainly not something I'd want to spend money on, or at least not much.
I am really looking forward to Paper Mario 3DS, and will be borrowing my kids' 3DS to play it.
