I voted for Eclipse given your criteria. But there is another game that I could send to you. Just geek-mail me and let me know. I have a few extra lying about.

While I haven't played MoO myself, my friend said Eclipse very much reminded him of it when I introduced him to the game.

Now I'm just plain curious as to what game you're referring to.

Of those 3 I'd say Eclipse but you could also check out Omega Centauri (assuming it ever actually gets published) as that's also inspired by the MoO series.

I absolutely loved MoO2. Played it to death.

Eclipse's ship design and research feels a lot like MoO2. The combat does not - unless you used to like the fast automatic combat. I always played the tactical combat.

I haven't played the other two.

ADDED:

As an aside, if Eclipse added a tactical combat system - it would be a killer game. Almost perfect. However, probably unplayable for more than two players - due to down time. Similar to the problem with Age of Mythology.

I encourage anyone who has some ideas to develop a home version of such rules. I know I would use them.

It's linked.
Adam is the designer.
Where is the confusion?
