My away team uses all expose weapons while I use 2 split beam exploit rifles. Split beam is by far the best ground weapons ive seen.

I maxxed out my unarmed skills and run at the enemy swinging while my BOffs heal me, recharge my shields and provide supporting fire. It isn't very tactical, but I think it is fun. I maxxed out on my close combat "traits" for my entirely human-looking "alien" also. I don't seem to pull much aggro, so I run behind the enemies while they are shooting at my BOffs and flank them (to great effect.)

Sometimes, I crouch and take pot-shots with my rifle just for giggles. That actually seems to be more effective, but I am a tank at heart.

This. Also, give your BOs all the HP/shield abilities you can, especially if you don't have any yourself. And don't forget to focus fire priority mobs (like medics, swordmasters, etc...). Remember you can always have a few extra BOs just for ground combat, if you feel you need more science skills during away missions, for example.

I run around my targets in circles like a big doofus thinking it will confuse the targets and make them miss more often. Eh, at least it's more interesting than standing in one place.

All my bridge officers have expose weapons and I carry exploit weapons.

I approach until I'm in range, crouch, target the strongest enemy, give the fire on my target command, toss a nade and then spam 1 until I see 2 flashing and then I press 2. When I switch targets I give the focus fire command again. Repeat until the area is clear. I don't move or dodge or any of that because it's unnecessary.

It's really quite mindless and my least favorite part of the game by a wide margin. I just wish it to be over as quickly as possible.

Though I have good fighting taticts / strat, and things go well on my missions...

I'm gonna ask - how can you tell a weaon is an Expose / Exploit weapon? I know some of my BOs have each - cause we get really cool "meltdowns" of bad guys (I love the ones who melt in a red glowing fireball ) - but couldn't tell you how to tell each of the weapons apart...

Mostly this:
Engage enemies, split beam them once then
Alt + Tab
then one of these:
Play Mafia Wars on Facebook
cut some extra metal from my warhammer miniatures
go in the kitchen, make some tea
kiss my girlfriend
pet the cat

then
alt + tab again, loot, on to the next camp.
