Recommend me my next favorite RPG!

I’ve had the itch to play another RPG recently, and was wondering if the hivemind could recommend me something interesting. In general, I like games that have these features:
1. A highly customizable character / party.
2. An engaging world and characters.
3. A deep and complex battle system. Or at least one that rewards practice.
Some of my favorite RPGs include Pokémon (hits #1 and #3), Baldur’s Gate 1 & 2(hits all three), and The World Ends With You (hits #2 and #3). More recently, I’ve also enjoyed Mass Effect 2 & 3, as well as Valkyria Chronicles.
I also most emphatically DO NOT like the Elder Scrolls series. The worlds are just not engaging enough for me to stay interested for more than a few hours. Everything starts feeling copy and pasted a few hours in.
Something that can be played on PC would be ideal, but also open to console suggestions.
