Any recommendations for a good Space Game?

For a bit of a more fun twist on the genre, Galactic Phantasy and Galactic Phantasy: Prelude are pretty fun if more causal romps of the Privateer/Freelancer/X-Beyond or as it has come be known on iOS, Galaxy on Fire style of game. Those two take a more JRPG feel to the genre and I found their lite-ness to be fun compared to the more tried and true gritty, lonely, bleak tone the genre usually takes.

If you are looking for the Galaxy on Fire 2 genre but want a game that doesn't feel as slow and plodding and dare I say it, fun in tone (not that Galaxy on Fire 2 isn't fun, but it is a different kind of "fun"), then try those. I particularly liked the second game a little more (GP:Prelude) though both are fun. There are some IAP in the game but they are just to fats track you to having particular types or awesome ships, and aren't necessary in my opinion.

Space Miner is awesome...

Also Waking Mars kinda if you count that as space?

There's also Out There which is a new game that's suppose to be good.

And here's some more random one from different genres -

Star battalion, Alien Space Retro,Tentacle wars, Archetype, Aeon Comand

And finnaly another new game primal flame which might be a space game but I'm not really sure.(ok this isn't space just darkness, but it still looked cool I dunno... :/)

* Forgot about 6th planet (from Monkube) it's half space pod lander and half story told in comic form. It's about a monkey traveling too a far planet (I guess the 6th one) I don't want to spoil anymore but it's cool you go through training and stuff the story is great and the game is self is pretty fun. I think it's free to, so check it out.
