    Command and Conquer titles should be on this list and Civilization, Total War are not RTS/Real Time Strategy but TBS/Turn Based Strategy.

    I don’t think that Sid Meier’s Civilization series are very similar in gameplay to StarCraft 2, since they are Turn-Based Strategy, maybe warcraft series are more similar.
