TWERPS (The Worlds Easiest Role Playing System) has just this
feature:  There is only one attribute for characters, Strength (ST).

In addition to the basic module, I think that several add-ons
were published; I recall one being about the "Kung Fu Dragons"
or something.

LOL!!  I started thinking about something similar last night, 
although I didn't think about an RPG with no attributes!  Basically,
my idea was create a combat system which you could drop a character
from ANY RPG into.  So the game would be about allowing your
characters from your favorite RPG to play out their combat in a
tactical sense instead of saying:  "You want to attack the monster?
Ok, roll a d20"
