The Star Wolves series has as much elements of a space sim as Homeworld does, it's basically Dungeon Siege with a sci fi theme.

EDIT: Then again you already knew that.  :o

 Bablefish it  :) thats how I found the Wing Commander/Freespace comparison.

The other really promising and proper space sim in that list is The Tomorrow War. 3D Gamers updated their gallery listing for it on the fifth and it includes some beautiful shots. The game does seemless atmospheric transitions and surface combat.

I'm personally not at all impressed by The Tomorrow War's engine, but the fact that it's based on a Russian novel series does sound promising.

Elite had it all, and for only 940k............Its amazing how Braben did it all.

Frontier wasn't that bad..  I actually preffered it, the stupid one with the semi-plot/aliens, Elite 3 maybe was arse-candy though.

I always felt the biggest mistake was the fact that they moved away from the old familiar models. In most cases, I slag the sequel off for being too much like the original ,but in this case, bugs aside, the main problem with Frontier for me was that they changed the entire universe from the Physics up, the only thing it really had to do with the Elite I knew and loved was the name. If Frontier had had either limited or at least easier to deal with Physics, the same Engine otherwise, and a more familiar feel to the ships, I think I'd have enjoyed it a lot more.

Combat, I think, was the most dissapointing part of Frontier.

Same here, but I think there will be an English version, seeing as it was showcased at E3 2006.

I rather liked Frontier, but for the exploration and trading part and definitely not the combat. What I really want is a game with the size and scope of Frontier, the flight model and mission variety of Freespace, warring factions and when-you-feel-like-it plot like Privateer, and graphics and economic model on par with X3. Unfortunately no games ever seem to have all those elements at once :(

I'm not certain it's possible.

Basically you're looking for a game that is both tightly and losely scripted but you do one at the expense of the other.
Karajorma's Freespace FAQ. It's almost like asking me yourself.
