If that's the case, then Phantasy Star Portable 2 is a "visual novel with an action RPG attached," because of the aforementioned "talking heads."
Dynasty Warriors PSP vol. 1 and 2 are "visual novels with hack-and-slash games attached," then, because "talking heads" are featured.
Mass Effect is a "visual novel with a third-person shooter RPG attached" because--you guessed it, talking heads (quite literally, too).
And so on, and so forth.
