Re: Your favorite Sci Fi games?
I like GalCiv2 as well, but I play it as Civilization in space and didn't bother with the story missions or lore.
That's sort of my approach. I've never played the campaigns or scenarios, and usually have 4-8 custom races I use (I make custom portraits and logos for them too). Some turn out to be wimps even though I tend to make aggressive Evils. An aggressive Good can be a handful too. Evil, warlike pacifists are a current experiment.
