DP9's Jovian Chronicles (https://www.dp9.com/jovianchronicles) uses the same system as their (also quite good) Heavy Gear, but takes things far further into deep space combat as well as ground attack. The sheer span probably deserves at least a mention here.

If we're going to allow 3:16 in here, and I love 3:16 don't get me wrong, we probably should put Chris Perrin's Mecha (drivethrurpg.com/product/82258/Chris-Perrins-Mecha) on the table as a more narrative and slightly less "gamey" wargame/RPG.

And if we're going to go THAT far, we might as well add Bliss Stage (tao-games.com/bliss-stage) to the list, because as a game ABOUT war, even with heavily narrative influence, it's hard to match.
