I assume you mean on consoles?
If yes, most of them are futuristic.
Dawn of War
Red Alert 3
Tom Clancy's End War
Halo Wars
All of them are futuristic, but that's coming from top of my head.

Edit: Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle Earth 2 is there, too. That must be what you're looking for.

Nope. No games like that on 360. Civilization Revolution comes close to your demands, but all in all there are no RTS-games for consoles, because pad is not suitable for RTS-game.

Then xbox can suck it lolol jk! But you can buy a keyboard that fits right on your xbox controller! You can get them practically anywhere where fine xbox items are sold for like $15! I bought a package that included one (plus PGR4, 1 year of XBL gold, and a recharging kit) for $60 CDN

Age of Mythology (PC) is exactly what you need, it's a great a RTS, and it's what started me liking this genre. There is a sequel, but it wasn't the best, but still a great game. It's made from Ensemble Studios (Age of Empires/Halo Wars) and was given GOTY and great reviews, you should really check it out, I think you'd love it.

I must apologize, I have played all the Age of Mythology games, its what got me interested in Rise of Nations & Age of Empires. Its a great game!

LotR: BfME2 and Civ Rev are the only games like what you're describing. Civ Rev is a turn based strategy, though; but it is incredibly fun. Would highly recommend it and you cna get it new for like $19.99

For me i think that i would have to say that you want something like C&C any of them really, Supreme commander 1 or 2, halo wars i know that you said that you wanted nothing that was too futuristic but apart from civilisation ( which in my opinion is pretty rubbish but thats just me) there is not a lot of choice so i think that if you want games like that i think that you best go to the PC and get something like total wars becuase that is pretty epic and is a lot better then age of empires

i don't think halo wars really did it for me compared to command and conquer tiberium wars and command and conquer red alert 3. i've played the demo of halo wars and the demo was pretty lengthy. sure, the game is different however is more like command and conquer red alert 3 in its appearence on screen.

i think the release of halo wars was a good addition to the halo legacy.
