So it really does depend on the game and its pacing.
That being said, I haven't played DoF yet so I can't say how this knowledge applies to the game.
One example that comes to mind would be Pikmin - you can go through the game entirely at your own pace, the only time limit being the number of missions you could go on (30 days/missions). Although that's more of a beginner's RTS and has only a few of the mechanics present in most strategy games, so don't quote me on that.
