Squares or Hexagones the Ultimate Tactics question

First off, what kind of feel are you going for in the combat?
As said, hex offers a bit more variety and more options when maneuvering units. It's also 'sexier' to today's gamers, not that turn based is considered sexy anymore.
If a strategic combat system is your ideal; one that brings back memories of games like Steel Panthers: World at War more than Bard's Tale, then hex might be the way to go.
However, I don't think a square grid is any less capable, just that from a marketing standpoint, hex might be better.
As for me personally, I don't care. Even if I'm not wowed by the combat system, as long as there's plenty of other stuff to grab and keep my attention, I'll happily ignore it.
