Final Fantasy Adventure
It's actually kinda amazing how many times I put this game on the back burner, came back to it, abandoned it, came back again, etc. before finally beating it. When I got towards the end where you talk to the girl for the last time, I had to laugh because I'd named her after my wife at the time. It's been 2+ years since we've been split and we'd been on the rocks for a good year or so before that, so it had to have been 3-4 years back when I started this one.
And it's finally done and over with now! Hurray for me!!!

I didn't know you were married once, OD! I'd say we should share our mutual stories of woe, except that's something stupid that only someone who didn't have any woe would suggest.
In my case, I can happily say I was intelligent enough to never actually sign anything official. Then, when our five years came to a bitter close, it was as simple as breaking each other's hearts and walking our separate ways. No legalities involved. But then, I don't believe in legal marriage.
On the plus side, it is a damn good feeling to beat a game you've been going at for years, isn't it? I did that with Persona 3 two years after starting it and, damn, it felt epic.
Probably the biggest for me was Odin's Sphere, which I similarly started back when I was in the midst of partnership and did not end (after restarting it, I might add) until a few months ago. Hell, she bought it after we broke up and beat it before I did.
I'm trying to think if there's one to beat that. I have a feeling there was some RPG I put down for years and then came back and beat... I know the original Kingdom Hearts had a gap. If I ever find my FF8 save and decide I hate myself with a passion, I may finish that, that would be something like an eight year break. I also have had Dragon Quest VIII on the back burner for about... three years now... and Persona 4 for about a year. Radiata Stories, too. About a year.
