Well, I'm a big fan of the Earthsiege/Starsiege franchise by Sierra-Dynamix. Though the aren't technically "mechs" (They are Humanform-Emulation Roboticized Combat Unit with Leg-Articulated Navigation, or HERCULANS, but they are refered to as merely "Hercs"), it's the same basic thing. In Earthsiege and Earthsiege 2, you can modify your Hercs weapons to defend the Earth from the Cybrid invasions. In Starsiege, it gets more complex. You can customize your Hercs weapons, internal components, firing chains, even their paint job. You also have the option of piloting a tank instead. They're supposed to be coming out with the next game in the series, Starsiege: 2845, sometime in the next couple of years, hopefully sooner. Anyway, there's my two cents.
