So with the recent article about the new Total War standalone game, specifically the part where you can take command of a gun emplacement, and join in the battle, it got me wishing for more games with this kind of thing. Are there/have there been any RTS/strategy games where you can get stuck in when you want? It's something that's always appealed to me but I've never really been sure of what games to try. Dungeon Keeper is one of the few games I remember doing it on and that was awesome, but something with the large scale of the Total War games, or other RTS appeals to me. So yeah.
