And for the BRP system, there's licensed Chaosium product Cthulhu Rising - the original Call of CthulhuIN THE FUTURE! AND IN SPACE! BATTLING DEEP ONES ON EUROPA! RUNNING FROM DIMENSIONAL SHAMBLERS ON GANYMEDE!
d20 Future is d20 Modern (which is Dungeons & DragonsIN THE MODERN WORLD!) IN THE FUTURE!... oh, all right: IN SPAAAAAAAAAAAAAACE!
d20 Past and d20 Apocalypse are Dungeons & DragonsIN THE LATE 1800s and AFTER THE END respectively. Both also have Urban Arcana style settings.
Spelljammer is literally Dungeons & DragonsIN SPACE! It was largely unpopular, but it has a significant cult following.
Space 1889: despite the name, this game, as a whole, averts the trope, being one of the earliest examples of steampunk. Making a role-playing game based on late 19th century science fiction and historical late 19th century was a new idea, not an existing idea put in space. However the adventure "Twenty Thousand Leagues Through Martian Skies" in Challenge #74 is Jules Verne's ''20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" recycled in the Martian atmosphere.
Star Trek: The Next Generation: A Klingon Challenge has much the same gameplay mechanics and presentation as Atmosfear, the first VCR board game to be a real hit. That said, A Klingon Challenge actually includes several gameplay mechanics that would later find their way into the first major Atmosfear overhaul, The Harbingers.
TravellerInterstellar Wars is the Greco-Persian wars in space, all the way from Marathon through Alexander's conquest.
Warhammer 40,000 began as WarhammerIN SPACE! but is now pretty much its own entity; it still, however, has goblins in space, orcs in space, elves in space, ogres in space, the Church Militant in space, vikings in space, communists in space and Chaos Gods in space. Previous versions also had dwarfs in space.
Many armies invoke a flavor of actual historical armies, albeit in space. Catachan regiments are the Vietnam-era US Army, the Armageddon Steel Legion is WWII Germany, the Death Korps of Krieg is the entire Western front of WWI but made much more grim, Space Wolves are Space Vikings, Dark Angels are Arthurian Knights, Black Templars are Teutonic Knights, and so on.
And even individual characters can often be spaced-up versions of historical figures. Lord Solar Macharius is Alexander the Great IN SPACE. Creed is Winston Churchill IN SPACE. The Emperor himself is variously Jesus or God the Father IN SPACE, with his Primarchs ranging from Space Octavian (Roboute Guilliman), King Arthur (Lion El'Jonson), Batman (Konrad Curze), and Thor (Leman Russ) to Space Genghis Khan (Jaghatai Khan) and Spartacus (Alpharius Omegon and Angron).
Mage: The Ascension was originally conceived as the medieval RPG, Ars Magica, IN THE MODERN DAY! — but then begat not only Mage: The Sorcerers' Crusade (MtAIN THE RENAISSANCE!), but, once White Wolf sold the rights to Ars Magica itself, Dark Ages: Mage.
Exalted, in turn, was supposed to be the original Old World of DarknessIN PREHISTORY! — but then came Scion, self-described as Exalted: IN THE MODERN WORLD WITH ANCIENT MYTHS ON TOP! (Though Scion doesn't necessarily match that description.)
With Shards of the Exalted Dream, Exalted has two different variants of ExaltedIN SPAAAAAAAAAAACE! No, seriously. The cover even has the Scarlet Empress doing her best impression of a certain Spectre, plus another version who's a space barbarian queen with autoklaves behind her throne. The two variants are Heaven's Reach, which plays space for grandeur and size, and Gunstar Autochthonia, which is a lot more claustrophobic. Shards also includes The Modern Age, Exalted in a modern setting, and Burn Legend, which is basically Exalted as a video fighting game.
Scion itself has a couple of alternate settings: the campaign in Scion: Ragnarok takes place in a setting where only Norse Mythology is true, as opposed to the basic Scion setting where All Myths Are True, and Scion Companion offers a historical setting in World War II.
There are also the settings in different cultures. Best known is the Year of the Lotus event which gave Asian treatments of every gameline, the flagship title being Kindred of the East.
The New World of Darkness has two types of alternate setting: one, nicknamed "Shards", translates the NWOD into alternate genre-settings, such as Bleeding Edge, which is NWOD cyberpunk, and Infinite Macabre, which is the NWOD IN SPACE! The other is historical settings for the various gamelines, such as Requiem for Rome, which is Vampire: The Requiem in the dying days of the Roman Empire, and Victorian Lost, which is Changeling: The Lost in Victorian Britain. Mage Noir manages to pull off a two-for-one, being Mage: The Awakening in the noir genre, set in post-World War II America.
