I'm a big fan of Gnostica.

I also highly recommend trying Homeworlds, especially the two player
version.  Is more that you just didn't like it, or that you couldn't
get around the rules?  I know a lot of people who couldn't understand
them just from reading through them.  It's a much easier game to learn
in person.

Also, last winter's (I think?  Summer before?) IGDC winner Pylon is a
great (and easy to learn) two player game.

I also hear good things about some crazy game called Icehouse ;)
