Modern game length makes it hard for anything to be "epic", in my opinion. The classic Final Fantasy games were epic, because you were playing for 30-70 hours. You had time to really get to know the characters, and watch them evolve (both story-wise, and in terms of strength through level ups and customization).

The classic Final Fantasy games nailed the "3 pillars". They had great gameplay, great visuals, and great stories. I'd add a 4th pillar. They had great music, too.
