Rome: Total War, particularly for the campaign mode and the fact that hitpoints aren't really involved. And the morale factor. Oh, and no resource gathering, just econ

My favorite RTS is Age of Empires II: Age of Kings. I consider the AoE series the founding of RTS games anyway. Other good RTS are Warcraft II, Starcraft, and Battle for Middle-Earth is fun.

Perhaps for you, but the first real RTS that everyone was going to build upon was Dune 2.

Dune 2 on the amiga was a true masterpiece and the first real RTS ever. It had it all. And I believe some of the guys behind that, are working on EaW...because Westwood were responsible for it, before EA swallowed them up

AoK:TC most definitely. It is insanely fun, deceptively deep, and brilliantly made. It may not have come out as early as Dune 2 or have the widespread adulation of StarCraft, but it is the template on which all RTS's are based and the game against which they are judged (outside of the Total War Series and its spawn).

SWGB comes in second, for obvious reasons.

That may be, but he is, or was, a regular inmate ... I mean member, of Aresen.
