Kingdom Hearts 1 and 2 Final mix (English patched of course). I prefer the Final Mix versions because of the extra "fluff" that's in em (Extra boss fights, cut-scenes that weren't in the previous releases, etc).

Last one I can think of the top of my head is Dark Cloud 1 and 2. Played the 1st one and It was fun. Haven't played the second one though. Its got the dungeon crawling bonus you were looking for. At least the first one does.

Final Fantasy XII is really good!
Also I would recommend the Shadow Hearts series.

Final Fantasy 12 - is excellent, especially zodiac job system, semi action/turn based game.

I also higly recommed :

Champions of norrath 1 (2 is also good as multiplayer) - action dungen crawler,
Star Ocean 3 - action RPG,
Dragon Quest 8 - fantastic open world turn based RPG,
Drakan - great open world action RPG with your own Dragon to ride as bonus,
Shining Force NEO/Shining Force EXA - great action dungen crawlers,
Suikoden 3,4,5 - fantastic turn based RPG series started on PS1, famous for fantastic storyline and 108 recruitable characters,
Dot Hack1,2,3/Dot Hack G.U.1,2,3 series - 6 games connected in to one wast story, fast packed action RPG happens in virtual reality Fantasy world,
Lord of the rings,third age - turn based RPG happens as back story of events in original moves where you lead group of warriors similar to original movie heroes,guided and advised by Gandalf itself.

i am not a fan of turn based games - should have died with the Megadrive/SNES - So all the games listed below are good ol' Hack n slash games

The Bards Tale - Fun game - One of the BEST "Snowblind Engine" games released - Also for PC
Champions Of Norrath / Return to Arms - Excellent Multitap compatible game
Shining Force NEO/EXA - I played these games over 120hours each
Ys The Ask of Napishtim - Ys for PS2 is good
Genji - Not quite a RPG, but good fun
Baldurs Gate - Dark Alliance I and II - the originals !

Any Snowblind game gets the thumbs up from me

One series of games I would say grab anyway...

ONIMUSHA 1-4 (Dawn of Dream)

I own all these on Originals I like em that much !

The First two games are DIGITAL movement only (No analogue Support) so it's rotate and move... Onimusha 3 and 4 use Analogue for controls and are a lot simpler to move !
Now I could have said, "Get Onimusha 3 onwards", but I didn't because the story is all linked and they are one hell of a tough set of games to get em all 100% complete

Onimusha 4 has a great BONUS
You have to complete "A Hundred Levels of Hell" on EVERY character to get the TOP weapons
This is 100 rounds Vs every enemy in the game.... Great fun... round 99 Dead....
One of the nice things though, anything you unlock along the way can be used in main game and vice versa. Good collecion of weapons as well in these games

I'm a huge fan of turn based JRPGs (old school Final Fantasy, ChronoTrigger, Lufia, Lunar, Suikoden, ...) and I'd love to see much more. I don't like tactical RPGs (Fire Emblem, FF Tactics, ..) and hack 'n slash action RPGs but nowadays that's unfortunately all you get (like the "Tales of ..." series) ..so I have to play some of them once in a while.

anyway, these are the ones I like:
Dragon Quest 8
Suikoden 3-5
Wild Arms 3-5 + Alter Code F
Grandia 2 & 3
Final Fantasy 10
Rogue Galaxy
Tales of the Abyss
