Not sure if these are on Steam (and I don't care if they are or not), but these match your criteria, more or less:

Jagged Alliance 2 (1.13 overhaul is awesome)
Silent Storm
Fallout: Tactics
Temple of Elemental Evil (Co8 overhaul, ftw)
Fallout 1 and 2 (use Killap patch for the 2nd)
Arcanum (use the mod that makes the fonts larger)
Pool of Radiance: Ruins of Myth Drannor (patch it, use speed mod)

Currently on sale (and I don't think it goes on sale often).
Best game in the genre. Get it.

Wasteland 2, it's in early access now and it does cost $60 because they didn't want the Kickstarter backers to feel cheated by early access. They did say the finished version will be cheaper. It's a turn based strategic RPG. You create a squad of 4 characters with a lot of potential for builds. The combat is similar to Xcom. You want to know where you are at all times, like make sure you're in good cover for shoot outs and be ready for melee enemies as well. There's also a lot of persuasion options you can put points into such as bad ass, smart ass, kick ass, hard ass, and kiss ass, but make sure you say the right thing or some people can get pissed off.

Banner Saga has tactical battles mixed with an RPG/adventure. Not quite as deep as Xcom's battle system, but still pretty fun overall.

Sweet, nice suggestions.

Yes, i know about wasteland 2 but im not interested in games that are in beta, but once its out of beta, its day 1. Jagged alliance looks very interesting though.

Though they lack cover based mechanics, Shining Force I&II (originally Genesis games) are both on Steam.

They are more akin to FFT and such since they are tactical RPG's.
