Is there any good space flight games?

Hi guys. You might not remember, but long time ago there was developer named Psygnosis. They made Wipeout. And also they bring to us best space game EVAR: Colony Wars. And the last part in trilogy — Red Sun.
So, Colony Wars: Red Sun, with no doubt, best space game ever. In my opinion, of course. And I'm looking for something as good as this. Note that in this game there's a lot of types of missions: convoys, space dogfighting, massive wall-to-wall battles with pirates, defense missions, stealth missions. And it's all in different environment, such as surfaces of planets and moons, and orbital or open space battles. And in space there is real COSMOS. Not like in EVE Online, when you move on flat surface and go up or down only when flying to specified point. Here it's full freedom to move in all degrees.
And of course there is a great plot in CW:RS. It was a long time ago, I don't remember all details, but there was something mystic, in style of Chronicles of Riddick (yeah, the movie, with Necromongers and stuff).
I was interested in X series, but from videos on YouTube it seems that most people can't understand what their mission, so game is calm, more trading-like, not fighting. And the plot is? Is there any plot?
Thanks in advance, and please forgive me my mistakes, I'm russian.

Not exactly what you're looking for but it's an amazingly fun game (no combat): http://www.kerbalspaceprogram.com/

Watch the teaser trailer on main page and then give the demo a go: http://www.kerbalspaceprogram.com/download.php

The demo is quite outdated now and they've added a bunch of new features. There are a load of mods too.

The X series is pretty cool.
I would agree the the game is very big and a bit complex to learn in the beginning. It starts out calm, but you sure have a few space battles.
It`s a great game if you have alot of time for it. =p

Other than that, I`ve seen Lunar Flight. Not really much of a space adventure, but it`s funny to see the old Lunar Lander game upgraded to the modern 3d.

I'll name Freelancer, it even has working Multiplayer, even after Microsoft turned off the servers, the fan community created their own network to keep the Multiplayer alive. But it may be a bit hard to get a copy.
