I'm surprised Guild Wars (especially 2) hasn't been brought up. I don't know about a game like Triple Town, but ArenaNet's sort of hybrid model seems promising: up front fee for a great, complete game, and more opportunities with the "coin model" (gems). They also have e-sports going for them, which is one of many things that encourages the long term relationship that Daniel mentions.
