I hear Lord of the Rings: Try the Search Bar is pretty good.

Battle For Middle Earth is supposed to be pretty good. Also, if you have even a half decent PC Lord of the Rings online is amazing, and it's free. 
 
EDIT: Oh sorry, BfME is only on the PC. 
 
The Two Towers and The Return of the King are your best bets.

The Third Age is pretty decent if you like RPG's, I know it entertained me more then I imagined it would, certainly a underrated gem.

I say you should get LotRO, I'm on that like crack for help with my rehab from WoW.  
 
Sure it's on PC, but I'm assuming you're on a PC as you are posting.

I remember enjoying Two Towers more for whatever reason but that and RoTK were incredible games. I feel like they were overlooked by a lot of people. 
 
Battle for Middle Earth was cool at the time, but I went back to 2 recently and it felt pretty blah. I did enjoy Third Age for the short time I played of it.

All of the above, oh and to clarify, BfME was freaking awesome in it's time, the second one is mostly very good too, although the building designs were absolutely abismal for the goblin hordes.
