Turn-based doesn't have to mean boring.
Disciples has been a respected series in the turn-based strategy genre. It's been years since a proper sequel, though there have been several expansions released for Disciples II: Dark Prophecy that came out in 2002. Over that time period it seems the developer Akella focused more on creating a game with visual flair than one with an interesting story and satisfying gameplay. Although the third game, subtitled Renaissance, has good elements to it, overall it's a testament to how monotonous turn-based games can be.
