As for RPG cliches I love games that make fun of them. If anyone had ever played Cthulhu Saves the World, they'll know what I mean.
Making fun of RPG clichés has become a RPG cliché in itself, it doesn't make a game more original, IMO. It's a bit like doing something awkward while shouting "Look guys, I'm doing something completely awkward, isn't that hilarious?". Nope, still cringeworthy most of the time. And RPG clichés are too easy a target. But of course there's nothing wrong with enjoying a bit of parody occasionally. (And I admit I will probably buy The Bard's Tale when it's released here.)
The distinction if whether it's clever parody or just dumb. It's entirely possible to make really clever parody of cliche, but it's far easier to just do the cliches and now and then go, "Hey, look at what I'm doing! Cliches, amiright?".
