What game has a good summoner character?

I'm sick of all these crappy summoners / necromancers that just stack DoT and use pets that are horrifically outclassed. I want a game where you summon hordes and hordes of fodder to fight for you like the necromancer spells in Fable 2, or the Hive Tyrant from Dawn of War 2's Last Stand mode.

I've tried Diablo 3's Witch Doctor, Guild Wars 2's Necromancer, Rifts Necromancer etc but they are all terrible minion classes and focus on DoT which just isn't that much to use for me.

Warlords Battlecry 2, an RTS from around the time of Warcraft 3 has an extensive hero leveling system which allowed for many different possibilities including necromancy and summoning. I'm not much of an RTS fan but that game was fun because of the hero system.

Path of Exile does. Hell there's an achievement for having 60 minions at the same time.

Sacrifice is a third person RPG/RTS based around summoning units and casting spells. There are 5 gods to choose from and lots of different spells & units.

I've heard a lot of good about the Diablo 2 Necromancer, how well did that game age? I really like Diablo 3 but from the brief videos I've seen of Diablo 2 it seems like it would be pretty hard to adjust to it now days
