As many of you that are subscribed to, I also have received a newsletter from Mimimi Games recently, explaining why they find it adequate to refer to the genre as Stealth Strategy instead of Real Time Tactics.

What do you think about the term Stealth Strategy?
What kind of games do you think of when you hear the term Stealth Strategy?
What do you think the best way would be to describe the line of games consisting of Commandos, Desperados, Blades of the Shogun, Partisans, War Mongrels, etc?

Here's what I think, but you might only want to view it after you thought about the above yourselves.

I don't mind it, I see Stealth Strategy as basically saying stealth real-time tactics with less words, it only complicates things in that it technically includes turn-based examples but those seem pretty rare. (Phantom Doctrine and Metal Gear Ac!d are the only real examples off the top of my head.)
