I can already see that with a fair amount of common games getting nominated (including many on my list) that it's going to be a damn tough decision to choose just one game from that poll.

The Room (short but perfect. a game that is polished in every way)
Lili (just fantastic, great gameplay mechanics, heads and tails above other swipe to attack style games.. in this one you cant randomly swipe to win, nice design, variety of locations)
Arc Squadron
Baldurs Gate (no probs with this, not sure what issues some people are having. my thief does her job, my party gets around just fine)
Final Fantasy IV (minor UI issues but forgivable in comparison to the size of whats there)
Max Payne

(haven't had a chance to try some of the other frequently mentioned games, but I have played quite a few iOS titles this year, and these are the ones that stood out)

honorable mentions:
saturday morning RPG
Myst 3D (sadly not a perfect port, but happy to have it on iOS nonetheless)
Final Fantasy Dimensions (it is actually quite good, but the dungeon design feels somehow emptier, and more in your face loot-driven than FFIV. IMO IV is still the better RPG, despite flaws.)
Dariusburst (fun, but short)

Just started playing Ravensword Shadowlands and Orc Vengeance so I don't feel able to give an opinion on those yet, as neat as they look at first glance.

OT, speaking of RPGs, I really wanted to recommend Lunar, as it's a classic RPG, but the interface port issues really dragged it down .
