One of my favorite free strategy games is Wesnoth (www.wesnoth.org).
The game has slightly off-putting cutesy graphics, that recall the
gaming state-of-the-art circa early to mid nineties.  But it has very
good turn-based strategy gameplay including single-player campaigns and
multi-player games over the internet.  Plus it's 100% free (beer and
otherwise) and in active development.

The latest development release now has python scripting for the ai
(http://www.wesnoth.org/wiki/ReferencePythonAPI).  The developers have
provided a python interface to the helper functions that the game uses
in it's ai.
