Here is what I watched so far, so that you won't suggest it to me again:

Finished:

Real Robots:
1. Cross Ange
2. Code Geass
3. Full Metal Panic

Super Robots:
1. Gurren Lagann (years ago)
2. Star Driver
3. Gun X Sword

Unfinished:

Real Robots:
1. Full Metal Panic: The Second Raid
2. Eureka Seven

Super Robots:
1. Genesis of Aquarion
2. Captain Earth

And please, don't just recommend to me Mobile Suit Gundam, alone. I've watched the original series movie compilation, Zeta Gundam, Gundam Wing, Gundam SEED, Gundam 00 (both seasons), Gundam Build Fighters, and Gundam Build Fighters Try. I am sure that there are plenty of other series I would have wanted to watch, and hope that they make it onto Crunchyroll or any other streaming services like it.

You haven't watched mecha until you've tried Gasaraki, Patlabor, and Giant Robo.

Check this out then http://www.crunchyroll.com/videos/anime/genres/mecha

I really enjoyed
Aldnoah.zero
Gargantia
Captain Earth

Majestic prince and "Valve-rape" are okay...

Dai Shogun and Argevollen blow IMO

If you can get in to the more, physiological gist, I would recommend Neon Genesis Evangelion. Sadly, it isn't on CR but if you can find it, it has a good mix of giant MECHAS and an intriguing story. Watch the TV show before the Rebuild series.

Shin Mazinger Z (Mazinger Edition Z on Crunchyroll) 1st episode is confusing, and early episodes are a bit slow, but once it gets rolling, it really gets rolling. It's honestly operatic at times. While it's here, you won't find it by searching for the genre. Crunchyroll needs to improve that. (Super Robot)

I second Giant Robo the OVA. Not on Crunchyroll but easy enough to find. (Super Robot)

Tetsujin 28 (2006) is a great tale about post WWII Japan. It's quite the melancholic series. Easy enough to find. (Super Robot)

Daiguard (Real Robot... mostly) is a series about salarymen who pilot a giant robot to fight monsters that attack Tokyo. Amusingly, the business and political antics are a bigger threat than the monsters. Not on here, but it got a rerelease by Discotek.

Big O. Essentially what would happen if Batman piloted a giant robot. Not exactly, but close enough. Rereleased by Discotek (Super Robot).

I tried to find it on other websites, like Daisuki, Hulu, Netflix, Funimation, etc. And unfortunately, I couldn't find it on any of those sites whatsoever.

Which is okay, anyway. Eventually, either Crunchyroll or any of the other aforementioned streaming services is going to pick up Evangelion, anyway, and I'll watch it from beginning to end like I would have wanted to. I have no idea if or when it will happen, but I'm sure it will happen.

Well good luck on trying to find it. I'm pretty sure when you watch it you won't be un-pleased and whenever you find them ridiculous Evangelion memes you can relate to them, even better!

Definitely Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet. Aldnoah Zero and Iron-blooded Orphans are pretty good. Valvrave is alright. Netflix has Evangelion on dvd (at least they did around a year ago), but not streaming. Giant Robo is a classic.

FLCL
Attack on Titan (mecha in a way)
Kill la Kill
Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex
Broken Blade (it's here on CR)
Wizard Barristers (pretty good, some mecha)
