Does any game combine these two in a satisfying way?

This would be something like playing Hannibal: Rome vs. Carthage but when armies clash then we would go into a Commands & Colors: Ancients battle. Or in a fantasy setting something like Rune Wars for the grand scheme and BattleLore (Second Edition) for the battles.

I think this is partly done in Field Commander: Napoleon, are there multiplayer games that do this?

Titan, maybe? You muster and move units on the main board and then you switch to smaller boards and make tactical moves during battles.

Napoleon: The Waterloo Campaign, 1815 meets a few of your requests.

It is a classic game with several versions. The system features strategic maneuvers with a separate battle map. However, it will only support three players using the published rules.

Magestorm although by many counts it needed more time in development.

Titan was the first thing that came to mind.

Or, if you have lots of time: Federation & Empire with Star Fleet Battles for the battles. :)
