I would have to say Max Payne, with Faith from Mirror's Edge a close second. Max is the epitome of the intense cop with a troubled past, and comes close to the greatness of Deckard from Blade Runner. Faith, who combines strength and courage with real sensitivity and integrity redefines female characters for video games: she is neither weak, nor gratuitous eye-candy.
