I think the most obvious recommendation would be the Kingkiller Chronicles although its not finished yet. Like Hobb, its first-person POV and middle-age themed. Also if you haven't already, Hobb's other series are definitely worth checking out as well: Tawny man, LiveShip, Rain Wilds.

I mean. . .
Range of Ghosts by Elizabeth Bear
One Hundred Thousand Kingdoms by NK Jemisin
Devices and Desires by KJ Parker
Tigana by Guy Kay
The Princess Bridge by William Goldman
The Emperor's Knife by Mazarkis Williams
The Whitefire Crossing by Courtney Schafer
Miserere by Teresa Frohock
The Traitor's Daughter by Paula Brandon
The Winds of Khalakovo by Bradley P. Beaulieu
A Shadow in Summer by Daniel Abraham
I could keep going, but that's a pretty good start?

I would also take a look at:
Sharon Shinn - Twelve Houses and Angelica series
Christine Pope - Indie author whose Tales of the Latter Kingdoms series I am really enjoying
Emily Gee - love her books but they are standalones other than her newest book which is going to be a series
Moira J. Moore - I enjoyed her Heroes series quite a bit
Sherwood Smith - Inda series is wonderful
Robin McKinley's books - though most are stand alone
Lynn Kurland's Nine Kingdomes series
Hope you find something you can enjoy

Try Lois McMaster Bujold's "Sharing Knife" series and her Chalion series. I thoroughly enjoyed them and reread them from time to time.

Consider Cinda Williams Chima's "Seven Realms" series. Good stuff.
