I've got a few. I do enjoy Hunters II (The devs went on to create Warhammer), Warhammers another good one.

Also playing a lot of Frontline: Commander, its not 'too' complex for a strategy but theres enough to get involved with, just the right level for me. Not over the top complex, not too basic.

Also if you search for xcom, you'll find 'Aliens versus Humans' which is a great homage/clone of the original X-Com. Lots of people rave about this one

my personal tops after XCom, hope they help

Warhammer Quest
Banner Saga
Final Fantasy Tactics

-and now eagerly waiting for the upcoming Demon Hunters in which i am taking a very active daily interest, it will come out in january and i firmly believe it can claim a place in top tier SRPGs.

Will also buy Swords of Anima as soon as it gets udated to 1.1

Frontline is the best, I like it.

Ok I gonna try to get it, I have played it on my Freind I pad.
I love the pressure in xcom, it makes me feel like a smart guy when I win a game.
It feels like a football match, you are helping and shouting when a sneaky alien try to mess up your game
