Anything in the Civilization type genre might work (e.g. Endless Legends, Fallen Enchantress if you like fantasy, Civ for contemporary historical/modern, etc.) but the one drawback is you’re probably going to have to be ok with a long drawn out campaign playing in 15-20 min spurts.

Another possibility is point and click adventures – the recent remasters of old LucasArts games or anything from Wadjet Eye, or even the Sam and Max Hit the Road series if you haven’t tried them. Those are pausable at will, and you can still sorta kinda “play” them by thinking of puzzle solutions when not sitting at your computer.

Yet another possibility are the idle clicker genre of games – I’m partial to Crusaders of the Lost Idols myself but there are lots of other popular ones out there. You just need to check in on them every so often, level up characters and skills, arrange a few things here and there, and then the game plays by itself until the next time you’re available to monitor its progress and make strategic decisions on what to do next.

Hmm, that also reminds me of time-based browser games like Kingdom of Loathing or Fallen London if you want more interaction than a clicker. You use up a few turns clicking through stuff quickly, and then waiting for turns to build up is built into the game itself.

I really need to learn knitting because crocheted socks are just not the same.
