Please name me an rpg

Hello, please read before listing rpgs, I'm looking for a specific type.

I want an ios rpg that's good on an iPad Air, (filesize is no issue) has to run on ios 7.1.2 but mainly has to have good longevity!!
I want an rpg that I can put 40-80-100hrs into. Price is not an issue but please NO freemium or iap festooned games.

Thank you kindly

Over 100 hours:
Monster Hunter Freedom Unite
Star Wars KOTOR
XCOM Enemy Within
Final Fantasy Tactics
Baldur's Gate 1 & 2
Icewind Dale
Heroes & Castles 2 (has consumable IAPs but are totally unnecessary)

+/- 40 hours:
Final Fantasy titles
Dragon Quest titles
Chrono Trigger
Wayward Souls
Bard's Tale
Battleheart Legacy (main story is about 10-15 hours, but new game+ modes and character build up can push for a lot of replay value and gametime)
Infinity Blade Trilogy (main story takes about 10-15 hrs, but the recurring new game+ scales infinitely for infinite level up, item upgrades and replayability)

Some premium RPGs i highly recommend, even though they can only stretch to about 15-30 hours:
Chaos Rings quadra
Implosion
Symphony of Origin
Alphadia Genesis
Doom & Destiny

Exact Pscience has a great list there. You might want to check out another thread in this forum - the Official RPG reload Club as there is a lot of in depth discussion about the various RPGs.

Infinity Blade is cool and all but the swiping does drag after a while.
