Looks like some people are wondering about what these games are and there haven't been a lot of responses. A few of these games have demos, like Lost Sphear and Forgotton Anne, so I would definitely try those. I'm not too familiar with the party games (there's a demo for Spelunker Party!) and the Fear Effect series (no demo, but is $2 and apparently has a following from the PS1 era), so I'll throw in the metacritic links.

Forgotton Anne was very well reviewed on PC and was nominated for an award, so might be a fun, cool game to mess around. How it differentiates itself from other platformers is not being the hardest and most frustrating to beat, but rather by having likeable characters and a full story, great art, and solid music and voice-acting.

I Am Setsuna is really there to scratch the nostalgia itch of the old JRPG days. It's a niche for sure, but it's been praised for the good art, the cool snowy environment, music, and just doing what it set out to do. It's not going to blow anyone away, but if you've been looking for a new and decent JRPG, this might be it.

Lost Sphear is also a JRPG with a stronger battle system. It's a hybrid ATB in that while you wait for your turn, you can position your characters around your enemies like in Xenoblade Chronicles 2. The art is minimalist, so that can be a hit or miss, but it seems to run well even undocked (as we all know the Switch runs lighter in handheld mode for better battery life, unless you overclock it).

Romancing SaGa 2 is a gem if you've never played it (it wasn't originally released in NA) and was a fan of SNES era RPGs. What's unique about this game is that your main character runs a kingdom, so there's a bit of management sim going on. Every single one of your characters can die permanently, but that's okay - you can have heirs to continue your legacy. The leveling system is unique as well and reminds me a tiny bit of Quest 64, where you gain attributes of whatever action you do. For example, if you use physical attacks, you gain more strength.

Big jrpg fan.... didn't get into Setsuna. It isn't bad, isn't great, just kinda....meh. Story isn't bad but came off to me a big generic, battle system brings nothing new or steals anything interesting from another game. I was excited enough that I imported a cartridge of it. If you want a by the numbers generic rpg it'll work for that, just taper expectations.
