My guy, I think you just described the Persona games.

If you have a PC, Persona 3 Portable, Persona 4 Golden, and Persona 5 Royal are on Xbox Game Pass.

Try them out if you want. Personally, I'd go for P5. It's pretty much the quintessential Persona game, refining the style, music, and gameplay of the series. Story is the usual thing with Persona (and you also don't need to play the old games to get this one, apart from Easter Eggs scattered about and a small twist late in the game that you MIGHT suspect coming), but the theme centers around "rebels" of society (and in a society like Japan where the nail that sticks out gets hammered down, there are plenty of ways someone can become a "rebel" due to outside forces).

If you're into turn-based combat on one half of the game and Sims-like third-person gameplay in the other half, then try this out for yourself.

I wish I could just play them without the dungeons. I really disliked the combat, but the story and life sim part was cool to me.
