God of War II

Easy one, but it pisses me off:
You have a larger pool of characters than you can use simultaneously at any time, ever.

Star Ocean 4, Final Fantasy, and the biggest one, Suikoden! (108 stars, but to be fair, maybe 30-50% can be used in your party, others just have various duties around the castle).

Next one, maybe also very easy:

You keep finding weapons and ammo in the oddest of places.
(btw, if you like please include a funny example from the game you mention, like in the toilet bowl)

I don't know about ammo, but if you consider a fire flower a weapon, then I think Super Mario Bros. qualifies.

You beat the final boss... only to discover that he (or she) has another form!

Thought of another one: Fat Princess
Still counts even though it hasn't come out yet, right?
