I find the hexes on the maps that come with the game to be too small even for the provided tokens.

Does anyone know of a manufacturer of some kind of geo hex system: I'm thinking, for example, a plain green sheet with hexes printed onto it onto which terrain tiles can then be places. Although I'd be willing to consider alternatives. Hexes would ideally be about double the size of the ones in the game.

http://www.hotzmats.com/ have what you need. They're slow but reliable.

I've only bought their unpatterned mats though so I can't comment on the actual hex mats.

Those look really nice.

Do you know of any terrain / terrain tiles that would work well with them?

Alas no. If I was to take this approach myself I'd probably go for huge hexes and then use the BattleLore terrain tiles.

Don't forget 1.8:
The Transport & Summary Track helps organize units that
are either being transported or are held off the mapboard as
instructed by the scenario rules, a special condition, or just to
better organize a hex containing a large number of units and
other counters
.

We played Star Fluxx, Star Munchkin, Dixit, and, of course, Bomb Alley.

Well, but the summary track hexes aren't that much bigger. But can help with clutter somewhat.

Ditto, then I'd probably end up using Flames of War minis for units, then realise that I'm now broke and have to clear the living room floor to set it up.

Those two downsides are common to all good wargame purchases though :D

Here's a practical illustration from a real FTF-played scenario.

I've used Heroscape tiles for various wargames since I have about 10k hexes worth.
