(TFT) RPG and miniatures

An interesting division. I simply divide between primarily roleplaying vs. 
primarily miniatures. In RPGs, figures are simply a play aid, even if you have 
detailed rules for movement. So, TFT and GURPS are RPGS, Melee and 
Dawn Patrol are miniatures games (OK, Dawn Patrol is a boardgame). DP's 
roleplaying has very little to do with the actions of the game.  

(Heavy dose of In My Opinion).
