Necromance powers, activate! Form of, a post!
Phantasy Star Online: Episode 3 managed adequately to do a tactical RPG where you only have one party member, so it's not totally impossible. Just impractical, and unconventional.
There's also Robotrek, and the Cyber Knight games, which while they mostly progress in the style of standard JRPGs, the battles are in the style of tactical games (albeit on very small battlefields).
P.S. I know it's "necromancy," but that's too many syllables for the joke.
*Edit: Oh, I just remembered Sorcerer's Kingdom for the Genesis, which also has SRPG-style combat with a max party size of four.
