The only thing missing from that list for me is Gungriffon, Silpheed, Aqua Aqua and Disaster Report. :)

 

Okage was one of the first PS2 games I ever bought along with Onimusha 1 and Metal Gear Solid 2.

 

I think Onimusha 4 is a hidden gem often overlooked I believe from the original series (1-3). I cant say for sure maybe its just underrated.

 

Also Summoner 2 and Drakan: The Ancients Gates are a few more overlooked RPG's.

 

Maximo = Great.

I'm surprised nobody talks about any remakes or sequels.

Because as good as Maximo is, it is coupled with rage, broken controllers, and shattered TV screens.

There's a robot controlling title called Robot Alchemic Drive. The story and voice overs are pretty awful, but the gameplay is pretty awesome with an interesting twist. You control a person and walk around as them, but you also can switch from them and control a robot as well. The big twist here is that you view the robot from the person's perspective. Thus you want to fly up to buildings (you have a weird jetpack thing) and can view from there. You fight other giant alien robots or monsters. There's also a two player mode where you can fight a friend. I always felt it was a really awesome and very unheard of game. I'm fairly sure it's a sequel/spiritual successor to a game called Remote Control Dandy.

TL;DR - You control a robot and fight other robots and monsters.
Here's a video link I could find. YOUTUBE LINK YO!

You should be warned... the voice acting is awful.
