Looking for Android RPG suggestions

Give me a solid, old-school RPG I can play on an Android phone

I was briefly excited to discover Planescape: Torment is available on Google Play and then disappointed by the fact that it's mostly unplayable on my phone - at least not if you don't enjoy squinting and have tiny fingers.

This has made me realize I have an itch that needs scratching though - what do Mefites suggest for someone who spent their formative years on the continuum from Baldurs's Gate to Might & Magic VII?

I don't mind a non-free game, but am somewhat allergic to in-game purchases. I am aware of various roguelikes and like them ok but this is not what I am looking for.

If you like BioWare titles, Knights of the Old Republic is supposed to be a great Android port, dunno how it actually plays on a smaller screen.

Eternium is a bit more hack'n'slash than straight RPG, but I made it through to the end without spending a penny, although it did take a bit of grinding. And it's not on my current phone, because once you've reached the end there's not much replay value - the gameplay is the same regardless of the character type you start out wiith.

LEGO Harry Potter 1-4 scratched my RPG itch, although of course it's set in the Hogwarts world rather than the standard fantasy background of the classic RPGs. Again, haven't paid a penny - it's $4.99 now, I got it free during a promo they ran a while ago. Supposedly the sequel, Years 5-7, has some gameplay changes that make it much less enjoyable, I don't know, I haven't tried it.
