Obscure JRPG's man! So not fair. (You're going to tell me that was a huge AAA U.S. game now aren't you?)

Japan only. I'd give it a 7 or 8 out of 10 for obscurity. It's probably the best game in its genre for the system, and a brave rival to Zelda.

Wow. High praise - is it playable for non Japanese readers?

It's not one of the Neutopia games, is it?

Is it a Lynx or GG game? The resolution looks to be that it may be handheld.

So what's the rule when no=one can guess the game? Do we just wait until someone gets it? Or do we move on after X days?

SIGH! It was Sylvan Tale, a Japan-only gem for the Game Gear.
