Games in LBA mechanics

Probably, a similar topic already exists. But I haven't found it. So I will post.
I am looking for (old) games that are similar to LBA in terms of technology (pre-rendered backgrounds+lowpoly 3D models), gameplay (move your character with keyboard, kick enemies around, talk to NPCs) and, partially, setting (phantasy world).

OK, some of them are obvious, some are not:
Alone in the Dark 1/2
Time Commando
City of the Lost Children
Ecstatica (game that uses ellipsoid technology, 3 pigs in LBA2 came from here)

Also, probably, Men In Black (but it was a boring game and the setting doesn't match).

Not exactly LBA-like but they deserve to be played:
- Sanitarium
- Syberia 1 and 2
- The X-Files Games
- Dracula The Resurrection (and its 2 sequels)

These mostly for the fantastic "ambience" it delivers, with a very peculiar scenario, music and graphics and ofcourse the very interesting automatons.

But the gameplay is only enjoyable if you're a deep down puzzle lover.

- Sanitarium - Yes, one of the greatest point-n-click adventure games, along with the Neverhood.
- Syberia 1 and 2 - Sorry, played only demo.
- The X-Files Games - I remeber having it on several CDs or DVDs. Was as cool as the series.
- Dracula The Resurrection (and its 2 sequels) - Sorry, didn't heard of it.
