Bastion is a good action game. It's slightly overrated because of it's "indie" origins and shouldn't be considered an RPG.
It´s simply a hack and slay with outstanding design factor and an EPIC narrator ;)
Doesn´t have anything more to do with an "real" RPG than Diablo I.
(Which also had been a fantastic game anyways...)
