EVE Online

EVE Online explains resurrection as your memories being copied at the moment of death and being placed into a new clone.

Only Mostly Dead: Players who die have their consciousness instantly transferred into a clone body. Technically, the person doesn't even die. When the capsule detects a hull breach in the pod, a probe injects itself into the capsuleer, scans the capsuleer's brain, and transmits the information almost instantly. All they've done, really, is swap bodies before the body in the capsule dies.

Body Backup Drive: Dead players automatically download into cloned bodies.

Cloning Gambit: The players. After getting podded a player's consciousness (or at least some of the memories) is transferred to a new clone body.

Our Elves Are Better: Jovians are a secluded human-esque race who have such an amazing understanding of technology that they have found a way to live forever (without cloning!) but have one weakness: depression... sound like Tolkien Elves to anyone else? Just rewrite it a bit to be magic and forests rather than space ships and sectors of... space.

Powered by a Forsaken Child: It is quite possible that clones of capsuleers might not contain their original consciousness, but it's implied that most people who use cloning don't care anyway. In-Universe beliefs about this vary. The Amarr believe that the soul does not make the transfer and that clones are an abomination, if a necessary one — families of the nobility are forbidden from cloning (Jamyl Sarum's "miraculous return" to save Amarr after her ritual suicide in the Succession Trials has to be danced around very carefully). The Intaki (a sub-culture of the Gallente) dabbled in consciousness transfer for centuries as part of their religious beliefs (think Reincarnation of a sort); their scientists made many of the advances in cloning tech, including Jump Clones. And so on.

Bio-Augmentation: The Jove are masters of this, to the point it's debatable if they're human any longer; they've made themselves superhuman and engineered away their emotions. They also gave the Caldari clone tech for reasons known only to them.

They've spent most of that time perfecting their cloning and evilutionary biology in order to drive out their base instincts and other undesirable traits.
