How about having different height values for the terrain so that there are hills (and maybe cliffs)? Hills:
-ground units move faster downhill, move slower uphill
-ground units and buildings can't see the other side of the hill
-unpassable for ground units
-ground units and buildings can't see what's on the other side if they're on the low side of the cliff -dynamically placed on the map if the difference between the height values of 2 adjacent tiles are above a certain threshold

I think height diffrence is highly overrated, it won't add anything to gameplay.

A illusion of heigt diffrence can easily be achieved anyway, just look at the way red-alert handles it, even though there are no real diffrence in height, the player get a clear impression that there is.
