Significant material imbalances

In one of my correspondence games, I reached a position with a significant material imbalance. So I searched through my databases for positions with similar imbalances. Lo and behold, I found some very interesting games! Here are two dozen extraordinary games that are well worth a look. And here are my two favorites:
