A Basic Roleplaying Space Fantasy
Fractured Hopes is many things, but the most straightforward way of describing it is "a Basic Roleplaying Kitchen-Sink Space Fantasy game."
Space Fantasy is a blending of traditional fantasy elements with tropes borrowed from science fiction. Where good science fiction looks at the effects on the human condition that technological changes might bring about, space fantasy is much more concerned with the flashier parts of science fiction (such as force fields, rayguns or starships, for example). What technology that exists isn’t based on "real" science, nor is science seen as the only way to solve problems. Mostly, technology exists to allow characters to do cool stuff.
Which leads me to the next term: "Kitchen-Sink." In its longer form, this phrase is, "includes everything but the kitchen sink," which is a way of saying, includes everything you can think of, and then some. In RPG terms, this means that gun-slinging desperadoes can rub shoulders with ancient wizards, and then go on a quest to stop the Monkey King from resurrecting an army of atomic-powered killer robots.
