Elasund. Not sure if it fits in with your theme though... it also plays quicker than what you estimated.

However, it is quite tactical with a strong strategy element that isn't readily apparent. I've played it many times as a 2 player game, and never am I bored or don't want to play again right away.

Lord of the Rings the Confrontation (Deluxe Edition) is also a good pick.

P.S. I hope this doesn't get posted twice.

2 player fantasy wargame that plays like an adventure: Duel of Ages.

After 3 years of playing/buying lots of the top rated games this game is still the most fun for the wife and I both. Tons of replay in this game and the theme is good as well, some strategy and tactics.

LOTR confrontation is also good.

TIKAL works great for 2, exploration, ancient kind of with a great theme, some depth

Dungeon twister is a great game but fun in a different kind of way, competitively fun in a way like chess. Very deep, a little exploration, and a great fantasy theme.

COMMAND & COLORS:ANCIENTS

A fantastic entertaining, playable and exciting game that will suit most of your requirements.
I can't stop playing this game and that has not happened to me since I discovered Axis & allies as a teenager.....

Convinced?

I'll second the suggestions for RETURN OF THE HEROES and WAR OF THE RING - both are excellent for what you're looking for, although WotR is, obviously, a more combat-centric game.

I would also add:

Age of Mythology
Play Time: 2-3 hours
Price: $30

Heroes, Inc
Play Time: 60min
Price: $40

Talisman (although the price may be steep)

Fury of Dracula (haven't played it yet, but seems cool if you're interested in a 'chase' game with a vampire theme...)

Good Luck!
