Game suggestion needed!

Hello people! Pardon me for my English as I'm not a native English speaker

Anyway, I'm on my holiday and out seeking for new games. I'm looking for games that back by an actual story line, not necessary need to strong or good but not another "keep-playing-and-break-your-previous-high-score" type. A reason other than high score to keep me playing is good enough as I rarely will go back for second time once I finished a game.

Coming from a PC gamer, price of the iDevice game is of my least concern, so feel free to suggest

Basically the action, adventure, role playing, strategy (Not RTS, please) genre suits me pretty well.

A couple of games I owned that I think to have some sort of story to back up the gameplay are;

Assassin's Creed, Brother In Arms, Car Jack Streets, Castle of Magic, Chronicle of Inotia, Doom Resurrection, Hero of Sparta, Mass Effect Galaxy, Need For Speed*, The Oregon Trail*, Prey Invasion, Resident Evil, The Sims 3*, Terminator Salvation, Underworlds, Vanguard Storm* and Zenonia.

*Not necessary a solid story line but... well its not high score.

As you all can see, my requirement on story line is not very high... I think. Any sort of help/suggestion will be highly appreciated!

Mecho Wars, Westward and Bugdom 2 sound like they might fit what you're looking for.

Couldn't help but notice you didn't mention Real Racing. It doesn't have a story a such but features some great single player championships and great online features!

Ones highlighted in blue are games I think are good and worth buying. As you can see there is only one highlighted in blue and that is Zenonia.
Ones not highlighted are neutral and depending on genre preference you may choose to get them or not.
Ones highlighted in red are ones I think are crap, and I recommend not getting them either because they are overpriced, too short, or have horrible theme/gameplay.

Those aren't games he's thinking about, those are games he already has.

Aurora, I don't think he was asking for your opinion on games he's already played -- he's looking for good suggestions based on a list of games he's enjoyed (and meet his criteria of having a "story," rather than being solely about high scores. Glad you think Zenonia is worth owning -- I happen to agree. But there are plenty of people on this board who would highlight a completely different set.

With that said, I would recommend you check out Bionic Surfer, Glyder, and Galaxy on Fire, all three of which combine story (well, it's pretty thin on Glyder) with good gameplay.
