You can count the RTwP games in single digits.

Well, there were Pillars and there is still Pathfinder. While Turn-based option is added, I believe Wrath of the Reightous was said to be still developed with Real Time balance in mind.

And then there is Wasteland (which has turn based roots I believe) and Larian, which seemed to prefer creatively turn-based over real-time.

I would like to see a big budget real-time with pause RPG. I think a big issue of games like Pathfinder or Pillars is poor visual feedback, and bigger production value might help in that regard.

Wasteland is TB.

I also would love a big budget classic fantasy RPG with RTwP. The closest right now is P:WotR, but that is nowhere near being a big budget game. And all other RTwP RPGs right now, to the extent that they even exist, are tiny budget indie games (ex. Black Geyser, Alaloth, Waylanders).
