So, not wargames (which I count Memoir as), but has to be of a scale/grandeure that means just having mini's isnt enough to qualify....
A grouping that's a fav of our 'dad / son' gaming sessions; i have Conquest of Nerath and A&A : Pacific to yet play and Id anticipate they'll make it on...

Does for Star Wars what War of the Ring did for LotR, its great (although, yes, the actual combat is a bit clunky)...

Ok, they arent 'dudes' and its not really area control, but honestly, whats not to like about whole squadrons of star fighters flying around...
Important to note that although it says Risk on the box, it isn't Risk in any way, shape, or form....

Counts as its got little men as opposed to the 1700/1800 series with cubes.
And Vikings.
And Berserkers.
And Huscarls (even better than Vikings trust me)
And Alfred the Great.
.....drops mike, walks away.....

Beginners A&A, and therefore beacuse of the length the one i get to play most often with my son. There's nothing quite like having a big map covered in tanks, planes, ships and all that stuff.

Fighting straight away, a 'tech tree', monsters, and no turtling makes it a great game, not entirely sure i can bend my head around the teleporting units though....

The 'standard' A&A game, Id rather play 1941 (or get Pacific to the table) to be honest, but its still a 'dudes on a map' classic

There's a lot of love out there for this one. I like it ok, but its low on this list as its less qualified as a 'dudes on map' in comparison to the others i feel.

The first (so on this list), but unfortunately far from the best (so it really shouldnt be on here i suppose) version of Risk, its on here as its what i started with.
Wish the one I had back in the 80's had a cover as exciting as this....
