Excellent point retroman. Although I'm trying to recall wouldn't Mike Singleton's games also count for R.T.S.? (I'm not a huge fan of the genre excepting starcraft, nowdays. However, I do recall Mike Singleton being regarded the king of strategy games at one time.).
Early Amiga games Midwinter 1 & 2, previously C64 Quake Minus One, Lords of Midnight & Doomdark's Revenge?
