Sins of a Solar Empire for me these days.

I enjoy RTS games.
I enjoy space-themes.
I enjoy blowing things up (virtually).

They've struck a good balance between micro-management and fluid game play. Enough management to keep me entertained but not so much that it's daunting. I don't care that 20% of the population of Axiom-7 is unhappy with the wheat production, and there's none of that in SOASE. It's a great game. Fantastic graphics as well. Full 360 degree rotation, with fluid zoom levels from multiple solar systems down to the cockpit of a fighter. It's pretty incredible.

Something about watching my armada drop out of hyperspace in an enemy planet's gravity well and immediately start launching hundreds of missiles at his orbital defenses make me giggle like a little school girl.

Nuke 'em from orbit, I say. It's the only way to be sure. \:\)
