I think Madison from Heavy Rain was actually a more realistic representation of a female character that was more human than most protagonists.

Anything that is not like Samus in Metroid Other M is a perfectly good start.

A good female character doesn't even have to be physically powerful to be likeable. For anyone who's into animation, look into Disney renaissance Princess characters. They weren't always a part of the action and fighting, but they were still strong characters who helped drive the story forward.

A character of ANY gender who meets a trial and tries to face it (whether they succeed or fail) with an interesting personality can win an audience over.
