Gratuitous Space Battles
"GSB is the new game from UK indie developer 'Positech Games'. It's a strategy / management / simulation game that does away with all the base building and delays and gets straight to the meat and potatoes of science-fiction games : The big space battles fought by huge spaceships with tons of laser beams and things going 'zap!', 'ka-boom!' and 'ka-pow!'. In GSB you put your ships together from modular components, arrange them into fleets, give your ships orders of engagement and then hope they emerge victorious from battle (or at least blow to bits in aesthetically pleasing ways). "

The spacebattles in this game are just a case of pressing play and fastforward, but the battles are impressive to watch.
Key to this game is designing your ships, placing the right ships on the field, planning out their formation, and watching the battle unfold.

Ship design. It's essential that you design the best ships and use ships of a certain role in certain battles.
