You can distinguish Strategy from Tactics in a relatively simple way:

If you allow yourself to lose a battle or arrive ON PURPOSE at a less-than-optimal single battle outcome in order to better win the overall longer-term war, that's strategy.
Otherwise it's tactics.

So none of those games are strategic in nature, they're all tactical: win every battle in the best possible way.
