I'm also giving Tales of the Abyss another chance to impress me. I got it over a year ago, put it down at some point, and it's just now occurred to me to pick it up again. Starting a new game, because the only thing I can remember is how much I hate Luke...hmmm, maybe that's why I put it down in the first place.
I'm currently playing the 3DS port of Tales of the Abyss and boy is Luke annoying. I'm also focusing on Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance and Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D(The port/remake does not disappoint.).
