Have you tried FreeCiv? It is like Civilization for Windows. I enjoy it.

Hmm,

You've got SimCity 3000 itself, which has been ported, and is still to be found ocasionally...

You've got Savage, which is a hybrid 1st person/strategy game...

You've got Homeworld SDL, the opensource port of the commercial game (you need the commercial version for the data).

Plus a ton of pure open source games...

Just search here:

http://icculus.org/lgfaq/gamelist.php

...refine the search for strategy titles.

I found a kick-@$$ looking game in this month's Linux Format magazine called Glest. It looks like Age of Empire or Rome graphics quality. It looks really amazing when compared to BFWesnoth.

However, I must provide 2 disclaimers:
1) Graphics aren't everything - I still love pacman
2) I haven't played either game yet. My linux machines as of right now are very poor quality
