There are countless strategy games by Paradox Interactive that can be seen as 'RTS' once you take the game off of pause. Many time periods, past and future, are covered. Their strategy games are also extremely open-ended for modding.

Check out 'Europa Universalis,' 'Victoria,' 'Hearts of Iron' and 'Supreme Ruler,' 'Sword of the Stars' and associated sequels, to start with.

They are, but once you hit 'play,' all bets are off...even if it still is on a strategic map. In this manner, it plays more like a RTS than Empire, Napoleon or the other Total Wars.

I'm tempted to create a mmorpg list since I don't think very many people explore far beyond WoW, but i'll refrain unless there really is a demand to know just how many are lurking out there.

the sad reality of the MMORPG genre is that there aren't many good 'new' MMORPG's around.

almost all recent big titles tried to copy WoW's style and failed miserably.

i've wasted a lot of money...

It still is strategy even though it took away alot of strategy and made it tactical, and part of the series

I've only two sword n' sorcery mmo's I'd want to play: EQ2 (since I was reasonably impressed the first time) and Age of Conan (since I have a time card).

I played the campaigns on the expansion expecting chaos. Instead, I had to play Space Marines again (and jump through hoops to get them corrupted).

C'mon...

edit: I hope the next expansion gives us a Dark Crusade sort of campaign with the option to play as something else throughout it.

I'm guessing this one's to list community recommendations for RTS games. It'll probably turn into something more like a global list because people mistake it for a list-all-games thread.

Not at all..?

Yeah, the games take hours, but if you haven't got the company to spend a good few hours on a game then I can understand why you wouldn't like it.

As said, I've had some amazing battles in that game. Pirated it originally and then bought it and all expansions because it was so good (and because you need a legit version to get the latest patches).

Also, Dawn of War is brilliant.

DoW2 Last Stand is pretty cool, too, but overall, DoW2 sucked.
