  Advance Wars 2, Black Hole Rising
This is only the fourth Gameboy Advance game I have tested or played with and the previous ones were fast action moving types. This one is at the other extreme on the scale. Advance Wars 2 is a strategy game where you take turns like a chess game.

The first annoyance I had found was that you have to go through an incredible amount of dialogue to read before you can do anything. The first few times I endured it but after a while you just want to get into the game and I was not able to without going through the entire diatribe.
Maybe I was not meant to be a strategy game player and prefer action but this one for sure bugged me.

The graphics are clear enough and conquest is the name of the game where the more you engage and win the more powerful you get. Personally I did not enjoy this one as I did the other 3 so you will have to take my info with a grain of salt. I guess for strategist, this would be right down your alley.
