These are my favorite genres of games. I've played some good ones in my time:
Age of Empires I, II: The Age of Kings, II: The Conquerors
Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2
Starcraft & Starcraft: Brood War
Homeworld & Homeworld: Cataclysm
Tradewinds series (not sure if this counts as strategy but it has trading and money management going on, merchant skills to be flexed to be able to do well in these games)
Some good ones that I like from what I've seen but never played:
Dawn of Discovery aka Anno 1404 - look at this vid
Do y'all have some recommendations to give as to what rts or empire management games to play? What are your favorites?

"Censorship is telling a man he can't have a steak just because a baby can't chew it."
— Mark Twain
“I divide my officers into four classes; the clever, the lazy, the industrious, and the stupid. Each officer possesses at least two of these qualities. Those who are clever and industrious are fitted for the highest staff appointments. Use can be made of those who are stupid and lazy. The man who is clever and lazy however is for the very highest command; he has the temperament and nerves to deal with all situations. But whoever is stupid and industrious is a menace and must be removed immediately!”
— General Kurt von Hammerstein-Equord
