I've made a game using no libraries (Java Swing/AWT) and heard that using a pre-made library would be easier. I'm hoping to make a basic 2D game or an RPG, what would you recommend?

If you need GUI widgets, there's TWL.

If you're not looking for a tiny package, don't discount full-blown engines like jMonkeyEngine or Ardor3d (no link, easily googlable).  Despite being "3d engines", they can be applied to 2d scenes just as easily.

It's not easier actually, but faster.

If you're making the game with the intention of learning, you could always just use LWJGL with Slick-util for textures and audio.

Otherwise, I've been using Slick and TWL for my 2D game and have found both pretty useful.
