Question: If someone made a 3D "Total War"/RTT Star Control game, would you play it?
Of course!
Nope... No way.
If it were REALLY well polished
Yes, but only if it is polished well enough.

I would really like such a thing, you know - the ships in Star Control are amazingly innovative.

Unless it brings dishonor to its ancestors, I would definately play it. That is enough said.

Me too. Just if it doesn't get very bad points in one game magazine...

Bad points don't necessarily mean that it's a bad game.

Sorry for the ignorance,
What is the difference between real time strategy to real time tactics?

What's the difference between the last two options?

I like my games simple and 2-D. So I think I'm the
odd one out who wouldn't play.

It's very usual for these two genres to be confused, even game magazines and websites do this. Anyway, here it is:
1. RTS involves base-building, while RTT does not (here, you start with a fixed force).
2. RTS focuses less on tactics (such as flanking etc.), while RTT is exclusively about them (no macromanagement).
3. The "Total War" series is a sort of a combination between a wargame (the campaign map, where you get to build armies, structures, move armies etc. - and where the game is turn-based) and a RTT (the battle map, where the actual action takes place).
4. For Star Control: Total War, I'd envision a real-time campaign map.

A. "REALLY well polished" means that the idea doesn't seem too bright for you, but if this game were made VERY, VERY well, it's OK.
B. "well polished" means that you won't jump into this game if it were badly made, such as:
1. Many, many bugs.
2. Horrible AI/pathfinding
3. Imbalance
etc.

I've played 100 itenerations of TImeWarp. I've played that hack fan game of frungy. I've played ... what was the name? 3d graphics, ships stolen from Star Control but not pledging any aligence to the cannon. Basically what I'm saying is I'll play anything that's even remotely Star Control related.

Especally if it's free to try.
