Melbourne House's ambitious strategy/RPG puts you in control of a wide range of characters from Lord of the Rings, starting out as Frodo and his neighbors Sam and Pippin. Strategic elements include allocating armies (similar to Dune) and RPG-like combat, while the adventure portion follows the book quite closely. Overall, an entertaining and solid adventure, if you can put up with its interface quirks.
