Just played this RTS for the first time in years a week ago and haven't been able to stop playing it! The gold pack (base game+Forces of Corruption expansion pack) is cheap on steam, and there are some AWESOME mods for it, namely Republic at War, which is basically a whole other expansion pack for the clone wars, and also adds bigger maps and more complex ships, as well as more units.
The space combat is by far the most fun part of the game, being based around a system of hardpoints, with each ship having various parts that do various function. They really managed to pull off the whole "massive space battle" feel, and it's pretty awesome when you get a big battle going and have multiple gigantic star destroyers and mon-cal cruisers fighting each other. It also has a fantastic campaign.
I'd highly recommend it. It doesn't take up much space and isn't intensive at all, so it's a great time killer to put on your laptop or something for when you want to do something for a few minutes (be warned, minutes will turn to hours). The mods like republic at war are a lot more intensive, so you'll want to play them on a proper gaming PC, but also add a ton more depth and are easily on par with any modern RTS.
I've had tons of fun re-discovering this game and I HIGHLY recommend it to any Star Wars fan, even if RTS games aren't your thing.
