I'm aware it's not a feature of Wordpress, but I was wondering if there was a way or a plug-in (haven't found one from searching) that allows me to force a user to change their password after a defined number of days.

I was busy writing up a plugin for this without even checking of one already existed. So I did a little research and found out that it does indeed already exist and that the path I was going down was the right one. Well, there's no need to reinvent the wheel here, so here's the link to the existing plugin.

Does what you need - I tested it myself.

Login Security Solution will also do this, but in my opinion it's not a good idea. If you force users to change their passwords too frequently, they're more likely to get frustrated and adopt bad practices in order to make things easier for them.
