It should be a standard feature that you can turn on/off in-game music and sound effects separately in all games

Vay, Elven Chronicles, and RPG Quest Minmae come to mind...

There aren't any good ones out right now unfortunately. It's an area that hasn't been exploited by developers yet, for some reason. It makes more sense to develop turn-based RPGs than FPS for a handheld device in my opinion.

Oh I guess Vay is ok. I haven't played too much into it.
Elven Chronicles is not a good turn-based RPG -.-'; It offers no challenge or strategic planning that any turn-based anything should offer. And it's so linear too. It reminds me of a RPG version of Rogue Planet.
I haven't heard of the Minmae one, so I didn't take that into consideration.

Well, most RPGs are something you play more for the story. I have rouge planet, but i haven't gotten a chance to play it yet, so i still have that it look forward to

That was a great game, although I would only say it contains light RPG elements. As everyone said before, I don't think there's any good turn-based RPG around yet. Hopefully that'll change.

Beta Testing/ed: Undercroft, Baseball Superstars 2010, Battle for Wesnoth, Fuzion, Twilight Golf, Indestructible Tank, Nanomechs Online Multi, Plushed, Ground Effect, Castlecraft, Inotia 2, Boom it Up, Guerrilla Bob, Caligo Chaser, Vanquish, IMO, Crunchy Orbs, Zenonia 2, Luna Story, Aralon, Shadow Era, Hybrid 2

I just downloaded Sword of Fargoal.

It's not turnbased.
But it seems so interesting and has randomly generated levels, so I could not resist the huge magnetic buy-button in iTunes Store.

I will look at the games you have listed.
But I hope there will be more turnbases RPG's in the future for iPod Touch/iPhone.
