Valkyria Chronicles is definitely a recommendation. So is Finaly Fantasy Tactics. Disgaea is pretty good from what i've played of it too.

Don't forget Bahamut Lagoon. It was my introduction to SRPGs and it is still great.

Definitely consider checking out Advance Wars: Days of Ruin for DS as well. I wasn't too fond of the plot myself, but I know others like it and the battle system is pretty fun. Plus it has fun grunge sounding music! The Final Fantasy Tactics games are another good place to start. All the others everyone has mentioned look good too, but I can't agree with Gen Eric Gui about Yggdra Union because of the card system. It wasn't necessary, and it made the game more complex than it needed to be.

What was hard to understand about the card system?  Card Power = damage dealt, Ace = who can activate the card, Use is who can use the card's powers and when, MOV is how many spaces the card lets you move.  What part of that is overcomplicating things?

And of course it was necessary, the game was based around the system and wouldn't have been even remotely the same without it.  And it being different and still working overall better than most games in the genre is part of what made the game great.

Edit: And while I whole-heartedly support everyone and their brother getting involved in some Advance Wars goodness, it isn't exactly an SRPG.

Eternal Poison is sorta like FE except with fewer characters and enemies and you need to capture enemies to acquire funds and equipment (you know that last part's sorta like FE V or at least what I've heard of it). Also the AI is very much geared to accommodate the monster capturing aspect of the game.

In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

How does Front Mission for the DS compare?

It's different. You'll spend a lot more time working on your units (you can practically put your own mecha together by buying and upgrading parts). The story is more interactive. You visit towns and other places and you can talk to random NPC's, but it's all menu based.

Valkyria Chronicles, Shining Force, Shining Force II, and Final Fantasy Tactics are probably the four best SRPGs I have played.  I'd recommend Suiokoden Tactics as well.  It's not too bad, especially if you like Suikoden.  And Jeanne d'Arc for the PSP was a bit generic, but totally rocked.

To summarize, it seems the most suggested alternatives mentioned were:

Advance Wars (DS)
Advance Wars: Days of Ruin (DS)
Fire Emblem (GBA)
Fire Emblem: Sacred Stones (GBA)
Fire Emblem: Path Of Radiance (GC)
Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn (Wii)
Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon (DS)
Valkyria Chronicles (PS3)
Shining Force 1 and 2 (PS3/360/Wii VC)
Disgaea (PS2/DS/PSP)
Disgaea 2 (PS2)
Disgaea 3 (PS3)
Final Fantasy Tactics (PS)
Final Fantasy Tactics A2 (DS)
Yggdra Union (PSP/DS)
Tactics Ogre: the Knight of Lodis (GBA)

It sounded like the following titles were also worth a look:

Suiokoden Tactics (PS2)
La Pucelle Tactics (PS2)
Jeanne d'Arc (PSP)
Stella Deus (PS2)
Ogre Battle: The March of the Black Queen (PS)
Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together (PS)
Ogre Battle 64 (N64)
Rondo of Swords (DS) 
Vandal Hearts (PS)
Bahamut Lagoon
Eternal Poison (PS2)

I thank you all for your suggestions - time for some research (and money spending...)

Okay, I gotta say it.  Try Wild Arms XF.  I know the battle system is a bit frustrating with the VP, Vitality Points, draining your HP, but it has good character development.  Plus, the music is surprisingly great as well with the new composers.

It is probably the best PSP game I own.  Sadly, that's not many. :)

Fire Emblem DS is awful, and rips the heart and soul out of what was great about Fire Emblem.  Skip it.

That's a shame.  I love Fire Emblem.  Looks like I'll just wait for this to hit the bargain bin.
