I've been playing a few 4X games lately, so I'm wondering what other people's favs are!

My favourite two atm are: Sins of a Solar Empire and Galactic Civilizations II. Anyone got any others to recommend? Is there something like Rome Total War set in space kind of..?

I know its something to do with RTS games, but thats about it. I have Sins of a Solar Empire, and its honestly not all that i was expecting it to be. The strategy is good and all, but the graphics don't seem all that impressive, and alot of the effects like explosions are pretty small. Its a good strategy game, but its doesn't have that epic feeling that it was supposed to. Also, there's no single player campaign at all.

So you know, a 4X game is not an RTS game. It's more of an empire building game (Masters of orion etc). Although quite a lot have incorporated RTS/RTT elements (Sins of a solar empire).
