Isometric game

Hi, I want to know is it possible to make an Isometric game where the game world would be 3d but all the character and units would be 2d sprites. Would something like that look good?

I am a programmer and I don’t have much experience with 2d games. Making a full 3d isometric game wont be worth it and might take too much of effort. So I am asking.

It could be made to look good, but it depend on how both the 2d and 3d art is made.

Nintendo used this technique for Fire Emblem on the 3DS
