I am looking for a game that has really big hexagons!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hexagon

Twilight Imperium for example, have very little stuff on their hexagons. Only planets. I am looking for a game with lots of stuff on each hexagon!

Are there any such games?

Don't know what you have in mind, but there is a wiki page where hexagonal gameboards of various sizes have been added to various geeklists. See:

Gammarauders has hexagons so big that, in comparison, bigness itself seems small :O)

Bionicle Adventure Game: Quest For Makuta

I suspect it's a pretty crappy game, but a few PnP-ers (including myself) have picked it up from the Thrift Stores just to re-purpose the large (about 7"corner-to-corner), interlocking hexes...

I believe Settlers of Catan has the biggest hexagons of any game. At least, this version does:

Wow! Some of the hexagons are really big!

But there must be more games who have big hexagons with lots of stuff on them!

Most of the games you have posted use hexagons as a square in the game.. The only game that stands out is the adventure game, where each hexagons have lots of small squares players walk on.

Empries of the Void has huge hexagons, but unfortunately it's not published yet
I'd really want to try this game.

Its not the size of the hex that matters. Its what resources it produces.

When will the die stop rolling? What face finishes showing?

Battle Masters was my first thought when I saw the title. I was beaten to it above.

Not only are the hexes huge, the game map is largest single piece map I've ever seen in a boardgame. There are some monster hex and counter war games with larger overall maps but they come in manageable sized pieces.
