Best RPG for iOS

What's the best RPG? Sorry if this has been done.

I'm a huge fan of Mario RPG and the Golden Sun series

Don't know the two you mention, so I cannot comment with your taste in mind.
In terms of "playing a role", King of Dragon Pass is the absolute champion on iOS: you are the chief of a Celtic-inspired tribe and need to lead them to survival and eventually form a clan. Interface is more like a strategy game. All your actions have consequences. If you're open for a different experience, go for it.

Other than that, you have quite the selection by now, depending on what you prefer, e.g.:
Baldur's Gate 1&2
The Spiderweb games (Avadon, Avernum series)
Gamebooks (lots of them)
Chaos Rings series

Search a bit for threads with "good RPG" or such in the title.
I'd recommend to check undeadcow's post; but he posts so much, it might be hard to find those threads
Here's two I have bookmarked:

Baldur's Gate 1-2 for sure; the extra content is garbage but it's what got the game an iOS release so... Of course you could just play these and all the other Infinity Engine games on iOS with GemRB.
