    Story
    Theme consistency
    System

    What are some other elements that are important to you?

    For example, I remember this really old game called "Darklands" ... played that for ages when it came out (in 1992) :)

    The first element people generally judge is the game's art, from the cover and the art previews; it's usually the thing that draws my attention to any RPG. Second element would be the gameplay itself, mainly any battle or exploration, especially when seeing motion previews of an RPG, such as on a TV commercial. But the moment I start playing the game, I think of finer details like the story, the music, and the characters; the finer details require you to actually play the game to assess how much you enjoy the game because it's hard to know what to expect without actually playing, and generally people don't like being shown major spoilers. So really, anything to do with previewing the game is important for drawing the player's attention, but the finer details are important for keeping the player motivated to continue playing.
