Though not really in the same league as these games, I'm surprised no-one's mentioned the Close Combat series. I <3'd those games as a kid.

EDIT: Wait, those were RTT... Derp.

Hello Kitty Island Adventure :p
Spoon - I stand in awe by your flawless fredding. Truely, never before have I witnessed such magnificant display of beamz.
Axem -  I don't know what I'll do with my life now. Maybe I'll become a Nun, or take up Macrame. But where ever I go... I will remember you!
Axem - Sorry to post again when I said I was leaving for good, but something was nagging me. I don't want to say it in a way that shames the campaign but I think we can all agree it is actually.. incomplete. It is missing... Voice Acting.
Quanto - I for one would love to lend my beautiful singing voice into this wholesome project.
Nuclear1 - I want a duet.
AndrewofDoom - Make it a trio!

Ugh..... tied between AoE 2 and Homeworld.

Starcraft bored the living daylights out of me, same with Warcraft 3.  I loved 1 & 2 though

I found the controls of Homeworld 1 sorely lacking. O.R.B. was far better in that respect.
The control systems were about even.

(I know I have to replay homeworld sometime :P)

But still. In my game, I had to zoom in on my own fighters, select them, zoom out, zoom in on hostile fighters, and then target them. In ORB I could simply stayed zoomed out and control everything Supreme Commander style.

Hmmm, would Battlezone count as an RTS?  ;7
