Default Mixed genre games

What are your favorite mixed genre games (the type of the ol' Robin Hood, or the new Dreamfall)?

One of the greatest even.

...Favorite genre mixes are action-adventure and action RPG, I think.

Too many good games goes into there that I cannot really mention just one. But hmm... I seriously love genre mixing.

I liked the blend of action/RPG/adventure in Mass Effect, adventure/action in Dark Earth and of course the mix of strategy/RPG (although that is pretty common round' these days) in HoM&M.

So yes, I am mixed genre games positive. Yet the line, dividing the two genres, has to be masterfuly camouflaged, otherwise the game may become too boring/straightforward.

Like in...Battle for Middle Earth?

Also, seriously, what's everyone's take on BFME? I absolutely adore the game, and yet I see that it didn't achieve Warcraft-range fame, and that that even the game's worthless drat sequal, improved by its expansion pack which transformed it into completely un-Lord of the Rings, is actually significantly more notable.

Never did I play that one, so I can't judge. Although I'm quite a fan of Mr. Tolkien's work I somewhat found the newer games based in Middle-earth disappointing.

To give my statement atleast some background, let me mention Mark of Chaos 2. Never played it either, yet in reviews I read that there are some rather nice RPG elements.
