I wouldn't consider Total Chaos as a RPG game, it's a strategy game. Tried Ishar 1-3 ages ago, but there is nothing appealing besides the nice graphics.
This thread topic is once again a bit vague: There are action RPG's, single/party RPG's, strategy games with a RPG flair, console-like RPG's etc. The best traditional ones are imho:
B: Bard's Tale Trilogy
C: Pools of Darkness
D: Legend of Faerghail
E: Dungeon Master
F: Buck Rogers
and some more
