As a birthday present, my girlfriend agreed to play an RPG with me. We played In A Wicked Age, along with two other couples, mostly non-gamers. It was a short single-chapter game, but it had some good stuff, like a magician whose particular strength was turning people into owls, an owl character (who couldn't talk) trying to win back his lover, and an unctuous bishop who we first thought was a vampire, but actually just had a skin condition that made him very sensitive to sunlight.
My girlfriend mostly enjoyed the game, although she's not *dying* to play again. I enjoyed that she played "a hooded stranger", made dramatic 'whoosh' gestures to sweep the hood back from her head, and talked, yes, in-character.
