I think I figured out what bugs me about Fantasy Age (FAGE). The first is that I'm not a fan of the "Roll + Modifiers >= difficulty" mechanic that was lifted from D20 (and True 20; let's be honest) but that I could replicate most of what is in there using Fudge.

Follow

Abilities + Racial Modifiers = Abilities, Social Class = Gifts, Character Options = Skills. You could probably create a whole stunts system for the combat stunts if you so choose.

But the thing that bugs me the most? Fantasy AGE isn't openly licensed, so it's an evolutionary dead-end unless Green Ronin decides to do more with it.
